Creating drafting documentation can be very time consuming as you may repeat the same steps multiple times. In this course, CATIA V5 Essentials: In-depth Drawings, you'll learn the most important and essential techniques to create drafting documents in a fast and timely manner. You'll start by first learning the drafting customization process to suit individual, company, or project needs. Then you'll look in detail into drafting projection, dimension, and annotation commands available in the drafting workbench. Finally, you'll finish off this course by learning methods required to create assembly drafting documentation. By the end of this course, you will be able to set, manage, and modify templates, drawing views, annotation standards, and dimensions as per company or project requirements. Software required: CATIA.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Aditya, and welcome to my course CATIA V5 Essentials: In-depth Drawings. I'm an engineering enthusiast, gear head, and I'm currently an author at Pluralsight. The process of preparing drafting documentation can be very time consuming and may require performing repetitive tasks several times. In this course we are going to learn the most important and essential techniques that are required to create drawing documents for parts and assemblies in CATIA V5. Some of the major topics that we will cover include learning the drafting customization process, looking into detail into drawing views and annotations, and creating assembly drawing views. By the end of this course, you will be able to set, manage, and modify templates, drawing views, annotation standards and dimensions as per company or project requirements in CATIA V5. This course is a follow up to the CATIA V5 Essentials part modeling and working with configurations course, and before you begin this course, you should be familiar with part and assembly modeling techniques. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn 3D CAD modeling and drafting with CATIA V5 Essentials: In-depth Drawings course at Pluralsight.

System Setting and Drafting Customization
Welcome to the CATIA V5 In-depth Drawings course. And in this module we will look at drafting customization. We are going to learn some very powerful and essential tools, which will enable us to create drafting documentation in a fast and efficient manner. In this course we will look into creating custom drafting standard templates, constructing custom sheet formats and using them as templates. We will explore important drafting view tools, learn how to generate dimensions automatically. We will also look into creating clipping and section views for the projected views, and finally, we will learn how to create assembly drawings. We will use the toolbox assembly file and its components as examples for this course. In this module, we will learn system options and how we can use them to our advantage. We will look at all the preset drafting standards as well. Then we will learn steps to access CATIA in the admin mode, and after that we will go and create custom drafting templates. Then, we will create our own sheet format templates, and finally we will look into preset configuration views in the drafting workbench. So let's get started.

Drawing Views and Annotations
Welcome back. In this module we will look into drafting views and annotations. We will start off this module by exploring project view types inside of the drafting workbench, such as views from 3D and auxiliary view. Then we will look into advanced front view, sectioning, and 3D clipping tools. We will learn the process to generate dimensions automatically in the drafting workbench. And finally, we will finish off this module by looking at cumulated views, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and dimensioning tolerancing tools. So let's start CATIA.

Assembly Drawings
Welcome back. In this module we will learn who to create assembly drawings. We will start off this module by creating orthographic projection views from the toolbox assembly. Then we will learn the advanced filtering techniques to show and hide components inside of the assembly views. We will create an exploded view for the assembly, then we will look into generating balloons and creating bill of materials, and we will finish off this module by learning the steps to create a custom bill of material template. So let's start CATIA.
