Course Code: CAT-en-GDE-F-15-181
Discipline: Mechanical Engineering
Release: 3DEXPERIENCE R2018x
Duration: 36 Hours
Description: The CATIA Functional Generative Design app provides an integrated design environment where the structural simulation (with SIMULIA), topology optimization (using TOSCA solver) and shape modeling are combined together in the same software. The various capabilities of 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows you to comprehensively refine concept shapes of assemblies, validate them and reconstruct them collaboratively and in-context by other disciplines for conventional or additive manufacturing. The course will teach you how to define functional specifications, analysis inputs, optimization target and constraints. You will also learn how to generate organic concept shapes automatically, validate their structural behavior and compare them to select the best possible solution. The intuitive workflow allows you to easily design components for additive layer manufacturing (ALM) along with more traditional processes such as milling, casting and forging.
Objectives: Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
- Capture a set of functional specifications for conceptual exploration
- Generate conceptual shapes on target and constraints
- Manage concept variants and perform trade-off study
- Design and validate detailed design for additive layer manufacturing
- Design and validate detailed design for casting
Prerequisites: Students attending this course should have completed the Gateway to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and the Basic Knowledge of CATIA Functional Generative Design Essentials courses. They must have worked on the CATIA Part Design Essentials, Natural Shape and Imagine and Shape apps.
