Catia V5 Interview Questions and Answers

  • Question:What Is Sketch Tools In Sketcher Workbench & Explain The Importance Of It?

    Answer :

    SKETCH TOOLS in sketcher workbench are the commands, which find very use in creating sketches. SKETCH TOOLS are namely geometric and dimensional constraints, construction elements/standard elements and Grid option. They play very important role in sketching, whenever we want to constrain a sketch we use these options and if we want to convert any element into a construction element once again these options come into picture.

    To check whether the sketch is fully closed or not so that the sketch can be used or not so that the sketch can be used for further operations in part design.

  • Question:What Is The Meaning Of Mean Dimension?

    Answer :

    Mean dimension is the dimension that should be mern of all the dimensions, which are tolerance. 

  • Question:How Many Axis Can Be Created In A Single Sketch?

    Answer :

    Only one axis can be created in a sketch, if more than one axis are drawn then only one of them, the latest one, will be axis and others will be converted into reference elements.

    • BREAK & RUBBER out removes part of the element, which is not clicked. 
    • BREAK & KEEP keeps both parts of elements after breaking. 
  • Question:What Is Show/hide Option?

    Answer :

    Show mode enable us to see all the components presently opened and in Hide mode we can hide the desired elements from the view for time being. 

  • Question:How Do You Measure Arc Length?

    Answer :

    We can measure arc length by using MEASURE ITEM command. Sometimes we need to customize the option for arc length if it is not checked earlier using customization in MEASURE ITEM command. 

  • Question:Is It Possible To Directly Enter The Part Design Workbench, When We Start The Catia Session. Instead Of Assembly Design Workbench?

    Answer :

    Exit Sketcher. 

  • Question:How Do You Create A Negative Polarity Body In Part Design?

    Answer :

    After inserting a new body If you use Negative feature as fist feature in a body the polarity of the body will be negative. Negative features like Pocket, Groove, Slot Hole etc.
