ENOVIA V5: DMU Kinematics

Learn how to create and simulate V5 mechanisms using CATIA products. The course begins with an overview of the mechanism design process and then each step in the process is discussed in depth using lectures and hands-on practices. This course also introduces the concept of converting assembly constraints into kinematic joints. Additionally, this learning guide provides an introduction to converting V4 mechanisms to V5 as well as the 3D model method of creating kinematic assemblies.
