6. Fix Together: fixes the position of the two different selected parts with respect to each other.
7. Quick: is used to apply the most appropriate constraint to the elements in the current selection
set.
Sketch Constraints
1. Correct set of constraints are required for all engineering objects which is enforced in CATIA
through the use of constraints.
2. Two forms of constraints are available: Quick and through Dialogue box.
3. There are some sketcher auto-constraints-origin, horizontal, vertical etc which do not appear in
the tree.
4. Non-auto constraints can be deleted from the tree.
5. A fully constrained sketch is green, under-constrained is white and over-constrained is purple.
Geometrical Set
The geometrical set is defined as a body that includes the newly created planes, surfaces, wireframe
elements, and reference elements.
Feature
A feature is defined as a basic building block of a solid model. The combination of various features
results in a complete model. In the Part Design workbench, the features are of the following four
types:
1. Sketch-based features.
2. Dress-up features.
3. Transformation features.
4. Surface-based features.

TUTORIAL 2A: CREATING NEGATIVE FEATURES


Part modification tools and their use
1. Pocket: Negative Pad: Its a tool to remove material from an existing object by extruding the
sketch to a given depth condition. Take note that you can use the sketch in pocket to remove
material in either direction.
2. Hole: Special Pocket: You can select any region in the object and invoke the Hole tool. It will
ask for the diameter and has special features. Take note the Extension can be used to select the
depth or surface while the type offers taper, countersunk, etc and details of thread if needed.
3. Groove: Negative Shaft: It is a tool for removing material from an object that requires an axis
and a profile. It removes the material from the object by sweeping the profile about the axis.
4. Slot: Negative Rib: Take note for rib, it is not necessary to have the centre curve and the profile
attached. For a slot you need a solid object, a profile and a centre curve.
5. Shell: Hollowed out solid: Indicate the wall thickness and the faces to remove.

14

TUTORIAL 2B: DRESS UP TOOLS


Dress up tools and their use
1.
Fillet: It is meant to round the edges or surfaces.
2.
Chamfer: Meant to modify the edges with a plane.
3.
Threads: Use the Hole tool to create these. Select appropriate type. Metric Thick pitch (M1,
M10 etc) and notice that the pitch and hole diameter is automatically created. You will need to
click on the hole to find the details of the thread as the details of the thread will not appear in the
tree.
4.
Pattern: Creating multiple copies such as holes/slots or any need for multiple instances within
an object.
