When working and sharing part files in a team or with other vendors, design changes are often required. If these design changes are performed by non-CATIA users then the part file could get filled with errors. In this course, CATIA V5 Essentials: Editing Errors and Design Changes, you'll learn how to troubleshoot existing models and look at the correct way to make design changes that are required. First, you'll explore how to diagnose errors at sketch and feature level. Then, you'll discover some time acquiring skills to troubleshoot errors. Finally, you'll delve into the correct technique to perform design changes on a part in an error free manner. By the end of this course, you'll be proficient at troubleshooting errors and performing design changes in the part environment in CATIA V5. Software required: CATIA V5.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Aditya, and welcome to my course, CATIA V5 Essentials - Editing Errors and Design Changes. I'm an engineering enthusiast, gearhead, and I'm currently an author at Pluralsight. When working and sharing 3D files with others on your team or other vendors, design changes are bound to happen. If the required design changes are performed by non-CATIA users, then the part file could get filled with errors. In this course, we are going to learn how to troubleshoot errors in an existing model and look at the correct way to perform design changes so that our part is error free. Some of the major topics that we will cover include diagnosing errors at sketch and feature level, repairing errors at sketch and feature level, and techniques to perform design changes in an error-free manner. By the end of this course, you will be proficient at troubleshooting errors and performing design changes in the part environment in CATIA V5. This course is a follow-up to the CATIA V5 Essentials - Part Modeling, Symmetry and Patterns, and Revolve and Sweeps course, and before you begin this course you should be familiar with part modeling techniques. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn 3D CAD modeling with CATIA V5 Essentials - Editing Errors and Design Changes course, at Pluralsight.

Editing Errors
Welcome to the CATIA V5 Essentials - Editing Errors and Design Changes course, and in this module we will learn how to edit errors in a part file. Many times when you have completed your part design and you share it with others on your team or other vendors, design changes are eminent. If the needed design changes are performed by non-CATIA users, the resultant part file is filled with errors, and also in many cases the part itself is missing from the design workbench. In this course, we will learn how to rectify these errors and restore our part back to its original state, completely error free. We will use the USB flash drive as an example. In the later module, we will look into changing the design of an existing part in such a way that it's free from all errors. We will begin this module by diagnosing errors in the Part Design workbench. Then we will learn error repairing techniques in the sketch environment, such as sketch analysis, missing constraints, and dimensions. And finally, we will finish off this module by fixing errors on features, such as changing sketch support, repairing fillets, and pattern references. So, let's get started.

Design Changes
Welcome back. In this module, we are going to use editing tools to modify our part geometry without changing its design intent. We will start off this module by reordering features in the product tree. Then, we will look at techniques to perform sketch modifications. After sketch modifications, we will look into feature modifications. We will also look at essential editing commands such as changing sketch support and replacing sketch entities. And finally, we will finish this module by learning how to change multiple sketch entities at the same time to modify the part geometry. So, let's get started.
