Entering the Workbench

This first task shows you how to enter the Part Design Feature Recognition workbench.
  1. Select File -> New and then select Part from the dialog box, or click the Part Design icon from the Welcome to CATIA V5 dialog box.
    The Part Design Feature Recognition workbench is displayed.

  2. Select File -> Open then select the GettingStarted.CATPart document. 
    This document contains a part whose specifications are not available. In our present example, Body.1 has been obtained by using the Copy as result command. For more about this command, refer to Handling Parts in a Multi-Document Environment in the Part Design User's Guide.


In the next task, you are going to recreate the specifications used to build up some faces of the part.
