What is Catia ?
It  is a computer aided 3D design software.After introduction of CATIA in 1977 by french manufacturer Avions Marcel Dassault engineers from various field get excellent tool for working with complex innovative shapes.

Steps involved while building any CATIA Project:

  1. CATIA Product Definition
  2. Create a Machine Plan
  3. Creating a Process Document inside CATIA
  4. Part Operation Set-up
  5. Tool Selection
  6. Machine Operation/Simulation 
  7. Verification
  8. Post Processing
  9. Export to CNC mill

In this post we will see some amazing designs build using this software.

Catia Projects from Mindwork community

Relaxing beach Chair Design: Design a chair capable of holding a person of 300 lbs and then conduct a finite element analysis to verify/prove that the chair is safe under such a load.

Hovell V4 Engine:The cylinders and pistons are aligned, in two separate planes or ‘banks’, so that they appear to be in a “V” when viewed along the axis of the crankshaft.A V4 engine is a V form engine with four cylinders and three main bearings.

Assembly Project: It is a direct application of your solid modeling knowledge and skill to a very practical
problem to develop an assembly model of a device.

Model a pump in Catia, rapid-prototype it, and pump water with it.

Catia to model and study the kinematics of a 4 cylinder engine

CAE Students use Catia to model and rapid prototype an RC Robot. See it in action!
