Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the working environment of the CATIA V5 software. They will be able to reproduce individual parts and assemblies on the basis of technical drawings and design or produce new ones in virtual space. In doing so, they will apply basic systematic procedures and develop their own systematics. Students will be able to use the software to produce standard-compliant individual part and assembly drawings.
