About this course


2 days

Course Objectives:

Delegates learn how to build functioning Kinematic mechanisms by adding mechanical joints defining the interaction between components and their associated degrees of freedom. These mechanisms are then “driven” by assigning inputs or commands to key components. The course covers the full range of simulation and analysis functionality available within the DMU Kinematic workbench allowing users to fully evaluate the performance of their mechanisms.

As a Dassault Systèmes Certification Center and an OEM Endorsed Training Provider, TECHNIA develop our own training material, written by our engineers who work with these products daily and incorporate their own experience into course materials. This results in process-focused education containing hints and tips relating to ‘real-world’ knowledge of these solutions.

The course includes the following topics:

  • Introduction to CATIA V5 Kinematics
  • Simulation
  • Simulation Evalutation
  • Converting Constraints to Joints
  • Simulation With Respects to Time
  • Mechanism Dress-up Features
  • Kinematics Sequences

Who Should Attend?

Mechanical Design Engineers with a requirement for animation.
