At Sekondera we have developed a number of Methodology and Process Courses in CATIA V5. These courses are intended to help the designer to optimize the way they model their parts.
Best Practice Modelling
The course for you who wants to learn the basics of creating changeable models.
The course CATIA V5 – Best Practice Modelling aims at the CATIA V5 users who have gone the traditional courses and need to know more about:
• Methods for creating structured, easily modifiable solid models
• Methods for creating structured easily modifiable surface models
• The best ways to deal with internal links
• Generative modeling
• Reuse geometries
• How to changer a model in the best way
Knowledge of the following workbenches: Part Design, Generative Shape Design (GSD1), Generative Drafting, Assembly Design.
Automotive Sheet Metal – Design with Surfaces
The course for you who design items that require advanced surface modeling.
The course CATIA V5 – Automotive Sheet Metal – Design with Surfaces aims at the CATIA V5 users who designs pressed sheet metal articles or other items that require advanced surface modeling and addresses the following topics:
• How do I create a structured, modifiable surface model in CATIA V5?
• Generative Modeling for stable and changeable surface models
• Reuse of features constructed using surfaces
• Drawing Generation of sheet metal articles
The course is also suitable for those users who design SMC and vacuum formed plastic parts.
CATIA V5 – Best Practice modeling and experience from the workbench Generative Shape Design
Cast and Forged Part Design
The course for users who designs cast and forged parts.
The course CATIA V5 – Cast and Forged Part Design aims at the CATIA V5 users who designs cast and forged parts and addresses the following topics:
How to create a structured, modifiable cast / forged part
The course Cast and Forged Part Design provides the answer to this and much more, including:
• Reuse of features built using solids
• How to create a blank model
• Skeleton Methodology
• Single-model technique Vs. Multi-Model Technology
• Link management, link between cast and machined results
CATIA V5 – Best Practice Modelling
Plastic Part Design
The course for you who designs plastic parts.
The course CATIA V5 – Plastic Part Design aims at the CATIA V5 users who designs plastic parts and wants answers to:
• How do I create a structured, modifiable plastic part in CATIA V5?
• What features should I avoid when it comes to the design of plastic parts?
• How do I update my plastic part in the most efficient manner possible?
• Many times build my plastic parts on styling surfaces, how do I build up the model in such a way that I am in the most efficient manner possible can replace the styling surfaces?
• Shell, Thick Surface or Core Cavity, there are many different ways to create a part of uniform thickness, but what are the disadvantages respectively available technology?
For designers who design SMC and vacuum formed plastic parts, we recommend instead the course Automotive Sheet Metal – Design with Surfaces.
CATIA V5 – Best Practice Modelling
Large Assembly Management
The course for you who has trouble handling large assemblies.
Do you have trouble handling large assemblies? Does it take a long time to generate assembly drawings, or it may not even be possible?
We have developed methods to deal with problems that arise when working with large assemblies in CATIA V5. These methods are generic, which means that they can be easily adapted to current CAD environment (file-based, ENOVIA VPLM or SMARTEAM). The course CATIA V5 – Large Assembly Management (LAM) contains the following:
- Product structure and management of assemblies – the tools in CATIA V5 facilitates the handling of large assemblies but how to structure them to optimize for LAM
- Part Design – how do you create a model that facilitates handling for LAM
- Memory management – tools and techniques for efficient memory management
- Advancement in CGR Management – everything you need to know about CGR:s
- Drawing Methods – Advantages and disadvantages as well as tips and tricks on view generation
- System Settings – tweak the settings in CATIA V5 to optimize the handling of large assemblies
Knowledge of the following workbenches: Part Design, Generative Shape Design (GSD1), Generative Drafting, Assembly Design
We customize a course the way you want it, depending on your needs.
- Do you spend much time updating your CATIA V5 models?
- Would you prefer if the models at your company were modelled in the best possible way?
- Would it be good if the designers at your company build their CATIA V5 models in a similar way?
- Maybe you already know how you want the designers at your company to build their models in CATIA V5, but you have a hard time making them follow your guide lines?
We have more than 10 years of experience in customizing CATIA V5 training material.

Transition to CATIA 3DExperience
This course is for designers currently using CATIA V5, who are migrating to CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE.
This transition course is aimed at the designers who previously worked in the CATIA V5, who will start using the CATIA module in the 3DExperience platform.
As the focus is on 3D modeling, for example, life cycle management is not affected to a large extent in this course. All management in PLM and Database (ENOVIA) is reduced to a minimum.
3DExperience includes several brands, and this course will focus on the use of CATIA.
