Getting started with CATIA V5

As the World’s Leading Solution for product design and development, CATIA presents the unique ability to not only model any product but to do so in the context of its real-life behaviour.

Systems architects, engineers, designers, construction professionals, and all contributors can define, imagine and shape the connected world.

Used across a variety of industry sectors including aerospace, automotive, plant design and consumer goods, CATIA can be used to support all phases of the product development process, shortening development cycles to help you create products and bring them to market faster.

The Javelin training course provides best practices that enables you to become comfortable with using CATIA V5 in the shortest amount of time.

The training course includes:

  • Understand the Sketcher workbench and tools/commands
  • Learn to create fundamental solid features – Pad, Pocket, Hole, Shaft, Groove, Shell
