3DEXPERIENCE CATIA: Sheet Metal Design

This training course enables you to create features that are specific to the sheet metal modeling process. You are provided with a process-based approach to creating sheet metal models. Each step in the process is discussed in depth using lectures and several hands-on practices. This training course focuses on the Sheet Metal Design app.

Topics Covered in this 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA Training Course:
  • Sheet Metal Design app
  • Sheet Metal terminology
  • Sheet Metal process
  • Sheet Metal parameters
  • Primary wall creation – Profile, Extruded, Rolled, and Hopper
  • Defining walls
  • Secondary walls – Wall on edge (automatic and sketch based), Tangent
  • Swept
  • Cylindrical bends
  • Bends from flat
  • Unfolded view
