CATIA Composites Part Manufacturing & Fiber Modeler

In this course students will learn how to produce composites manufacturing information from CATIA models containing OEM information added with the Composite CPD and CPM workbenches. CATIA Fiber Modeler (formerly Simulayt Advanced Fiber Modeler) will be used to analyze complex surfaces seen in the aerospace, helicopter and motorsport industries.
