CATIA Sheet Metal Design

Duration: 2 Days

Current Class Schedule and Pricing

This course enables students to create features that are specific to the sheet metal modeling process. Students will be provided with a process-based approach to creating sheet metal models. Each step in the process is discussed in depth with the use of lectures and several hands-on exercises. This course focuses on the Generative Sheet Metal Design workbench.
