CATIA V5R17 for Designers introduces the reader to CATIA V5R17, one of the world's leading parametric solid modeling packages. In this textbook, the author emphasizes on the solid modeling techniques that enhance the productivity and efficiency of the user. This textbook consists of 15 chapters structured in a pedagogical sequence, covering the Part, Assembly, Drafting, and Generative Sheetmetal Design workbenches of CATIA V5R17. Every chapter begins with a command section that provides with detailed explanation of the commands and tools in CATIA V5R17. The command section is followed by tutorials that are created using these commands. This approach allows the user to use this textbook initially as a learning tool and then later use it as a reference material.

Following are the additional features of this book:
   Detailed explanation of CATIA V5R17 commands and tools
   More than 35 real-world mechanical engineering designs as tutorials and projects with step-by-step explanation
   Emphasis on Why and How with explanation
   Tips and Notes throughout the textbook
   672 pages with heavily-illustrated text  
   Self-evaluation tests and Exercises at the end of each chapter
