CATIA Functional Tolerancing & Annotation

Duration: 1 Day

Current Class Schedule and Pricing

Acquire the skills to create and display engineering, manufacturing, and assembly information directly on the 3D part, assembly, or process model through this extensive hands-on course with numerous practice exercises. Students attending this course will receive a thorough understanding of geometric tolerances, dimensions, notes, and other annotations critical to the accurate and cost-effective creation of mechanical parts and assemblies. The 3D Functional Tolerancing and Annotation course complies with the industry and government initiated American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ (ASME) Y14.41 3D standards for the creation and submission of model only, paperless design applications.
