Have you ever tried to assemble a multi-body product in CATIA V5, but you could not properly manipulate or even import the desired parts? In this course, CATIA V5 Essentials - Assembly Design Basics, you will learn how to create a functionally constrained assembly of an office desk. First, you'll learn the fundamental tools and toolboxes from the Assembly Design workbench in CATIA V5, as well as how they are manipulated in 3D space on a product file. Next, you'll learn how to import parts with different file formats into an assembly, such as IGES and STEP, which are the industry standards for CAD compatibility. Finally, you'll achieve detailed inspections and assembly validations for accuracy verification. When you're finished with this CAD course, you'll not only be able to assemble an office desk, but will also be proficient in any kind of multi-part product assembly in CATIA V5. Software required: CATIA V5R20.

Course Overview
Hi, and welcome to the CATIA V5 Essentials - Assembly Design Basics course. My name is Bruno, and I'm a water sports and sailing enthusiast, as well as an aerospace manufacturing engineer with experience in the aerospace industry and academia. Currently, other than being a Pluralsight course author, I work as an RND project engineer and designer. On this course, I will show you how to start and finish your first product assembly on CATIA V5. Some of the major topics that we will cover include putting together the pieces of an office desk on a step-by-step process, importing parts from third-party vendors, applying functional constraints, and verifying the assembly accuracy. By the end of this course, you will be fully proficient on the basic assembly methods and techniques required to create your own product assemblies on CATIA V5. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the CATIA V5 parts design basics. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn CATIA with the Assembly Design Basics course, at Pluralsight.
