Creating Assembly Models in 3D CAD


Traditional 2D drafting is capable of showing the geometry of simple 3D parts, however solid models extend that ability by being able to merge complex assemblies of parts into a complete mechanism.  Using a 3D software program, such as Catia, various 3D parts can be combined into complete assembly models by rotating the parts, sliding them, exploring various ways to join them and employing other design concepts that are far beyond the geometric representations of 2D CAD.
