A night lamp in CATIA V5

Deutsch: CATIA-Logo

Although, CATIA isn’t developed to create night lamps, but still one can do so! Let’s see how.

The tutorial describes a ‘how-to’ approach to the model shown below. Note that the tutorial skips rendering techniques, maintaining the overall attention to modeling. And of course, it’s just an approach, not ‘the way’.

Modeling consists of two phases:

  • Part modeling
    • cover
    • body
    • base
    • chord
    • bulb
    • bottom cover
    • switch
  • Assembly
    • placing components
    • use of assembly features

As the methodology is a bit longer, I’ve created a .pdf document, which is available in the mentioned link.

    I would greatly appreciate some help with a tutorial for a surface modeling, to which I have no real dimensions, just a solid part in a STEP file.
    If it would be possible for you to look it up and tell me which tutorials are useful, or better (only if you have the time and want to) create a tutorial from it, and post it.
    I wait for your reply.

    Have a great day, and many thanks in anticipation

    I would love to do so. Just e-mail me the step file and will look into it.
