    Learning Outcomes

    The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:

    1. Create solid models in CATIA for parts with machining or material deposition manufacturing
    2. Create parametric models with skeleton structures where all parts update with high level geometry
    3. Work effectively in a large globally distributed CAD model
    4. Analyze strength and stiffness of solid parts of isotropic material through CATIA FEM
    5. Create manufacturing drawings for parts ready for use on a machine shop floor.
