CATIA, or Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application. Sounds pretty high-tech. And it is. In this leading-edge course, you'll get the necessary skills and training to complete solid CAD models and their drawings. You'll cover topics like software functionalities, settings, customization, sketching, wireframes, drafting tools and much more. CATIA Level 1 is just one in a series of courses created to help you develop computer design skills to begin your career in this dynamic field.

Your take-away

This course is a great way to help you:
• Understand the terminology of 3D Computer Aided Design with Solid Modeling;
• Learn the principles and operation of CATIA;
• Familiarize yourself with the drop-down menu, toolbars, icons, specification tree and command-line structure;
• Learn the techniques involved in producing and presenting 3D drawings;
• Learn the concepts of feature-based and parametric modeling.

Our approach

In this course, you'll gain real-world knowledge, experience and insights through lectures from an experienced pro who'll show you the ropes.
