Catia Tutorial

September 28, 2011
Catia is consistently considered to be one of the most popular CAD/CAM software options available. It was designed by Dassault Systems, a French company, to provide users with the perfect platform for design, analysis, and manufacture of new products. It is focused on making collaboration simple and streamline the creation process to make product development faster and easier. The latest version that has been released is CATIA Version 6. However, many companies have chosen to not yet upgrade from version 5 because they simply do not understand what improvements have been made.

What You Need to Know About CATIA v6

1. Upgrading From Version 5. One of the biggest reasons that companies do not considering upgrading their software to the latest version is potential compatibility options. Fortunately, upgrading from version 5 to version 6 is actually a very simple transition. Catia v6 was designed with nearly a 80% portfolio similarity. This was done specifically to make upgrading from version 5 easy and trouble-free.

2. Online Creation and Collaboration. Catia v6 has been optimized in order to enable concurrent work in real time. This is done through a simple internet connection, even from remote locations. This is considered by many to be a huge breakthrough for companies that are currently utilizing a global engineering and manufacturing strategy. It allows for wide scale IP (Intellectual Property) modeling in a collaborative environment with joint scalability throughout the entire creation process.

3. Using a Single PLM Platform. Catia v6 was natively built on a single PLM platform. This allows for support of IP modeling that spans every engineering discipline and collaborative business processes (CBP) which allows for coverage throughout the entire product life-cycle Since the design data, engineering data, and manufacturing data are all stored within the same base it can accessed in a unified way, thus enhancing multi-discipline collaboration

4. Creating a Lifelike Experience. Catia v6 was designed to insert 3D into the heart of every company. Users can now experience the product as if it was already created. This was achieved by providing new shades which creates more realism within the product definition view as well as new working ambiance in regards to the floor, reflections, etc.

Designers will also gain an advantage because Catia v6 is so easy to use that it can quickly be integrated with a variety of daily tasks. Even the most casual users will be able to use the Catia 3DLive interface to find information, experience the product, as well as collaborate with others in a 3D online environment.

5. Creating a Global Collaborative Innovation. Catia 3DLive is a key feature in Catia v6. It creates a 3D portal to allow all actors across the country to access all parts of the product definition. It also has integrated tools specifically to allow online global collaboration as well as instant global collaboration This allows for peer to peer connection with a heads up display style that allows for “drag and drop” ideas, in 3D, between designers. The highly scalable architecture is based upon SOA which allows for simple management of the worldwide product development process.

Catia v6 offers a variety of tools that will allow the entire product process to be streamlined, saving both time and money. Now, designers, engineers, and even the most casual users can interact in a 3D environment, just as if they were in the same room.

AutoCAD was one of the first Computer Aided Design programs to be made available on personal computers. It is built to help people design buildings, products, or public spaces, without having to draw up plans by hand. It was released in 1982 by Autodesk, Inc., and offered a personal solution to software that was before then released only for larger workstations. While CAD programs prior to AutoCAD required massive amounts of computing power in the form of gigantic computers, AutoCAD streamlined its operating and optimized it for the IBM PC, allowing people to work from home or on their own work computers.

Through the 1980s, AutoCAD functioned mostly by using simple lines and circles, and text overlays, to set up custom objects. Beginning in the 1990s, AutoCAD began utilizing more robust custom object features, built with an Advanced Programming Interface using C++. And starting in 2007 AutoCAD has had much more advanced 3D tools that allow for greater 3D modeling and exploration of models, with high-quality, fast-moving rendering.

The modern version of AutoCAD allows for much more than simply C++ programming. It has set the standard for operability in terms of Advanced Programming Interfaces in CAD, and can use VBA, .NET, AutoLISP, and Visual LISP, as well as the C++ based ObjectARX. This robust programming set has allowed for great extensibility for AutoCAD, and there are a number of more specific AutoCAD programs, including AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Civil 3D, and AutoCAD Architecture.

The file format that AutoCAD uses, the DWG format, has become a standard for all CAD work. Autodesk shifts its estimates of how many DWG files are in operation in the world, but generally places the number at quite a bit more than one billion. Although a number of other CAD programs exist at this point, including programs for Mac OSX and NIX systems, AutoCAD remains the industry leader and sets a number of standards in the CAD community.

In addition to AutoCAD, Autodesk produces many other design programs, all built to help designers or architects work on specific projects. Their software is focused on all aspects of rendering, both in 2D and 3D, and they consistently seek to push the envelope on what their technologies can achieve. Autodesk software includes industry standards for animation and product design, in addition to AutoCAD itself. For example, files created with their design software may be exported and sent to prototyping facilities, which can input them into 3D printers to generate immediate 3D prototypes for an affordable fee. This seamless interaction between home software and affordable high-speed prototyping is in many ways changing the way design is being undertaken, and has largely removed barriers to entry.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) is a form of design in which people work with computers to create ideas, models, and prototypes. CAD was originally developed to assist people with technical drawing and drafting, but it has expanded to include numerous other potential uses. A variety of software products designed for CAD can be found on the market, with many being targeted to a specific application or industry.

Drafting and technical drawing can be very painstaking, and they require some special skills. Using CAD for drafting still requires many of the same skills, but by working with a computer instead of on paper, people can be much more efficient. They can also play around with ideas much more easily, moving design elements around and running the design through software programs which can determine whether or not the design is structurally viable. For example, an architect working on a bridge can test the design in simulations to see if it will withstand the load it will need to carry.

CAD can be used to design structures, mechanical components, and molecules, among other things. One advantage of using CAD is that people don’t have to make prototypes to demonstrate a project and its potential, as they can use a three dimensional modeling program to show people how something might look. CAD also allows for endless variations and experiments to show how the look and feel of something can be altered, and these can be done at the click of a button, rather than with painstaking drafting work.

Casual users sometimes like to play with CAD for things like deciding how to organize their furniture, or lay out a garden. They can drag and drop elements and play with the space in a variety of ways, and generate a configuration which will be suitable and aesthetically pleasing. CAD is used by professionals in a number of industries across the manufacturing sector, and it can also appear in some surprising places, like forensics labs, where researchers recreate crime scenes on a computer to explore scenarios.

Advanced CAD programs usually require extensive training from their users, as they can be very complex and challenging to work with. More casual programs can be learned in shorter periods of time, with some designed to allow people to work within the program immediately, learning as they go. Simple programs can also sometimes have their functionality increased with expansion packs which are designed to provide additional features, so that people can work within a program they are familiar with when they want to develop more complex designs.
