This course focuses on functionality delivered within the Mechanical Systems Essential & Experience apps, which allows the user to build and simulate mechanisms within a CATIA assembly context.


2 days

Course Objectives:

Delegates learn how to use functioning engineering connections defining the interaction between components and their associated degrees of freedom. These connections are used to define a mechanism which are then “driven” by assigning commands to key components.

The course covers the full range of simulation and analysis functionality available within the Mechanical Systems Essential & Experience apps allowing users to fully evaluate the performance of their mechanisms. The course includes a mixture of presentation and tutorial, enabling students to gain hands-on experience.

This course includes the following topics:

  • Reusing existing Engineering Connections
  • Advanced Engineering Connections
  • Defining controlled Engineering Connections
  • Creating and managing Mechanisms
  • Mechanism Dress-up
  • Creating a Simulation
  • Creating a Scenario
  • Creating and Managing Excitations (Laws, Recorded & Segmented)
  • Creating Results
  • Creating Swept Volumes
  • Creating a Trace from a Moving Part
  • Clash Detection
  • Distance Analysis
  • Exporting results
