|Welcome to the Infrastructure User's Guide. This
guide is intended for users who need to become quickly familiar with
Infrastructure interactive functions.
This overview provides the following information:
|The Infrastructure User's Guide
contains information about the user interface and basic tools common to all
Version 5 applications:
|Version 5 addresses advanced mechanical process centric
design requirements. In addition to leading edge feature-based design
functions, it includes highly productive capabilities for the design of
mechanical assemblies and for drawing generation.
Available on both UNIX and Windows environments, Version 5 is built to be totally compliant with Windows presentation standards.
In order to integrate to an extended enterprise where CATIA Version 4 designs need to be exchanged and processed, it includes unique two-way interoperability with CATIA Version 4 data. Likewise, Version 5 benefits from the breadth of the CATIA Solutions Version 4 portfolio by offering interoperable applications. As an open solution, it includes interfaces with the most commonly used data exchange industry standards.
|To get the most out of this guide, we suggest that you
start reading the Basic Tasks section, which
deals with handling basic functions.
Once you have finished, you should move on to the Advanced Tasks section which describes more advanced functions.
You may also need to access the Interoperability section for more information about interoperability between Knowledgeware applications and other applications. To do so, just click the icon from the table of contents.
Navigating in the Split View mode is recommended. This mode offers a framed layout allowing direct access from the table of contents to the information.
