An Introduction to CATIA V6 Release 2012 is a collection of tutorials meant to familiarize you with CATIA’s Mechanical Design and Shape workbenches. Designed for beginners, this book assumes that you have no previous experience using CATIA. The book’s hands-on approach is designed to get you right into CATIA and start drawing right from the start. You will learn by doing, not just reading. The author helps you explore all the major features of CATIA and directs you to CATIA’s online documentation for a more detailed description of the commands when appropriate. The workbenches covered in this book are; Sketcher, Part Design, Assembly Design, Drafting, Generative Surface Design, and Imagine and Shape. Preceding each tutorial is a brief description of the workbench, toolbars, and commands to be used and focused on within the tutorial.
The objective of this tutorial book is to expose the reader to the basic FEA capabilities in CATIA V5. The chapters are designed to be independent of each other allowing the user to pick specific topics without the need to go through the previous chapters. However, the best strategy to learn is to sequentially cover the chapters. In this workbook, the parts created in CATIA are simple enough that can be modeled with minimal knowledge of this powerful software. The reason behind the simplicity is not to burden the reader with the CAD aspects of package. However, it is assumed that the user is familiar with CATIA V5 interface and basic utilities such as pan, zoom, and rotation. The tutorials are based on release 15; however, other releases can also be used with minor changes. Typically, the differences are not even noticed by a beginner. The workbook was developed using CATIA in a windows XP environment. Nevertheless, it can be used for NT and UNIX platforms without any changes.
The objective of this tutorial book is to expose the reader to the basic FEA capabilities in CATIA V5 Release 20.

The primary goal of Parametric Modeling with NX 12 is to introduce the aspects of designing with Solid Modeling and Parametric Modeling. This text is intended to be used as a practical training guide for students and professionals. This text uses NX 12 as the modeling tool, and the chapters proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic solid models to building intelligent mechanical designs, creating multi-view drawings and assembly models. This text takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important Parametric Modeling techniques and concepts. This textbook contains a series of fourteen tutorial style lessons designed to introduce beginning CAD users to NX. This text is also helpful to NX users upgrading from a previous release of the software. The solid modeling techniques and concepts discussed in this text are also applicable to other parametric feature-based CAD packages. The basic premise of this book is that the more designs you create using NX, the better you learn the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons. This book does not attempt to cover all of NX’s features, only to provide an introduction to the software. It is intended to help you establish a good basis for exploring and growing in the exciting field of Computer Aided Engineering. This book also introduces you to the general principles of 3D printing including a brief history of 3D printing, the types of 3D printing technologies, commonly used filaments, and the basic procedure for printing a 3D model. 3D printing makes it easier than ever for anyone to start turning their designs into physical objects, and by the end of this book you will be ready to start printing out your own designs.
