CATIA Generative Sheetmetal Design

This course will teach you how to design a sheet metal part using associative feature-based modeling. Standard and user-defined stamped features can be integrated into the design and the resulting flat pattern is calculated in accordance with standard bend allowances or with company specific bend allowance tables.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
Relate to the terminology and the design process for creating a sheetmetal part
Define and manage the sheetmetal part parameters
Design walls, bends and flanges
Add features such as cutouts, holes, corners and chamfers
Create standard and userdefined stamped features
Manage folded and unfolded views and export a finished flat pattern
