Using CAD / CAM Services for CATIA V5 3D Modeling
Typically, two-dimensional (2D) drawings are used to document 3D models. However, with CATIA, CAD / CAM services can take your 3D models and convert them into the 2D drawing format used throughout the manufacturing process. Additionally, if you require assistance with CAD modeling in CATIA V5, then CAD / CAM services can provide you with reliable and affordable CATIA V5 3D modeling. How is that possible?
The latest generation of solid modeling systems such as CATIA makes it possible for CAD / CAM services to insert the dimensions, geometry design and tolerancing, annotations and parts lists directly into the solid model, which eliminates the need for drawings. CAD / CAM services can compose, detail and annotate any number of views of the 3D model in CATIA V5.
For example, CAD / CAM services can provide a live 3D model with a prescribed series of annotated and dimensioned views to a contract manufacturer 2D layout for 3D design capabilities, which enables users to work in a 3D environment with advanced 2D drafting capabilities during the conceptual phase of a project.
This allows 2D geometry as well as profiles and planes to be exported for fast and easy 3D geometry creation. Additionally, dimensioning and tolerancing annotation data can be added during the preliminary phase, which eliminates the need for it to be recreated in a downstream process.
Why CAD / CAM Services for 3D Modeling in CATIA V5
The central concept of CAD / CAM services approach to 3D modeling in CATIA V5 is that the 3D product model is the most appropriate vehicle for delivering the detailed product information needed by downstream processes. By using CAD / CAM services for 3D modeling in CATIA V5, you can ensure the following:
- Define 100% of the product definition using a single 3D data set
- Reduce the cost and improve the quality of the product development process
- Substantially increase the amount of design information that can be reused in future variants
- Reduce manufacturing costs by optimizing manufacturing services
