Top 38 Catia V5 Interview Questions You Must Prepare 24.May.2024

Degree of freedom for points & ellipse is 2 for circles it is 3 & for ellipse it is 5 in two dimensions. 

Mean dimension is the dimension that should be mern of all the dimensions, which are tolerance. 

We can measure arc length by using MEASURE ITEM command. Sometimes we need to customize the option for arc length if it is not checked earlier using customization in MEASURE ITEM command. 

SKETCH TOOLS in sketcher workbench are the commands, which find very use in creating sketches. SKETCH TOOLS are namely geometric and dimensional constraints, construction elements/standard elements and Grid option. They play very important role in sketching, whenever we want to constrain a sketch we use these options and if we want to convert any element into a construction element once again these options come into picture.

Only one axis can be created in a sketch, if more than one axis are drawn then only one of them, the latest one, will be axis and others will be converted into reference elements. 

Three dimensions are required namely major axis, minor axis and the distance from the origin. 

This tool bar only appears when you are in sketcher workbench. The four tools found in this tool bar are toggle tools. When tool is highlighted the tool is on. This particular tool bar changes depending on what other sketcher workbench tool is currently selected. 

Parabola has RHO values of 0.5, Ellipse has RHO value between 0 & 0.5 and Hyperbola has RHO value b/w 0.5 & 1.0. 

This task shows how to make some edges visible. In other words, we are going to simplify the sketch plane by hiding the portion of the material that is not needed for sketching. 

No, we cannot select a non-planar surface as sketch. 

No, it is not possible to enter in to sketcher workbench directly. We have to go for any workbench &form there we can enter the sketcher workbench.. 

The kernel is the basic indispensable part of an operating system that allocates resources such as low- level hardware interfaces & security. 

The color code for these elements is Green. White and Magenta respectively. 

Axis is used in creating shaft (revolved) feature. 

Isolated is used when 3D geometry is projected on to a sketch in order to be modified and used as part of the sketch’s profile. 

Explore and the relation b/w the original and mirror element doesnt exit. 

File Extension of Part file is dot CATPart (.CATPart) 

Pi, P2 and P3 will indicate the different types of platforms of CATIA. Higher the number sophisticated will be the software. 

Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application. 

Show mode enable us to see all the components presently opened and in Hide mode we can hide the desired elements from the view for time being. 

True dimension is the dimension desired after the machining. In other words, this is the value that should be attained after the machining. 

To check whether the sketch is fully closed or not so that the sketch can be used or not so that the sketch can be used for further operations in part design.

We can convert line into axis but axis cannot convert into line. 

Yes, with help of F3 button, but the option in Tools conunand must be checked to allow this. 

  • BREAK & RUBBER in removes part of the element, which is clicked. 
  • BREAK & RUBBER out removes part of the element, which is not clicked. 
  • BREAK & KEEP keeps both parts of elements after breaking. 

Construction elements assist in sketching the required profile in sketcher.


After inserting a new body If you use Negative feature as fist feature in a body the polarity of the body will be negative. Negative features like Pocket, Groove, Slot Hole etc. 

Yes, ou can create a block using line, when you are extruding a line or any open profile you can check thick option in Pad feature (to avoid Error message). You can Give limit one, Limit Two and Thickness one and two. You will get Block from line and thin sheet from any open profile. 

Note: Dont use this option to create a sheet metal part using part design. 

Solid Combine is alternative option for Intersection Boolean operation. 

Yes, go for Tools-Options- Infrastructure-Part structure-Display.
