Four Ways to make your model by CATIA:
(1) Parametric Solid Modeling
(2) Parametric Surface Modeling
(3) Unparametric Freeform Surface Modeling
(4) Unparametric FreeForm Volume

Watch these four videos to see their difference...

Practically, we can mix these four skills together to form a model efficiently. For example, use #3/#4 to build big surfaces, draft the whole outlook, then use #2 to make details on surfaces, like filleting, blending & trimming, and finally use #1 to build internal mechanical features, like screw bosses & ribs. This is the reason why we can make a stylish, clean and editable detailed model so quickly.

Bart, nice to meet you.


i used ProE, unigraphics, catia, & solidworks before. For me, they look similar. Many design techniques can be applied on any one of them. I use Catia to demonstrate because the developer donated many licenses for us to use and provided great support. i have no intention to compare catia with others orsay it is the best. For me, it isjust a good tools. The most important thing is how we use the tools.


For the claybakeexercise, i will try bycatia.
