Biographical/​Historical note
Ionuț Gabriel GHIONEA is an associate professor, member of the Manufacturing Engineering Department, Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Robotics, University Politehnica of Bucharest since 2000. In 2003 he completed an internship to prepare his doctoral thesis at École Nationale Supérieure d'Arts et Métiers in Aix-en-Provence, France and has a PhD in engineering since 2010. Ionuț Gabriel Ghionea published, as first author or co-author, 11 books in the field of Computer Aided Design for mechanical engineering and more than 120 articles in technical journals and conference proceedings. He is a member of the editorial board and review panel of several international and national journals and conferences. Mr. Ghionea participated in research and educational projects for industry. He is one of the most known and appreciated CAD trainers in Romania, carrying out this activity since 2002. He is, also, considered to be one of the main and first didactic promoters of the CATIA program in the Romanian academic environment, he made numerous CAD applications, video tutorials, practical works for students and CAD courses for companies in Romania and abroad. In December 2020 he became a CATIA Champion, recognition issued by the Dassault Systèmes (Paris, France) for his long-term commitment in promoting and using PLM System CATIA. CATIA Champion CATIA Certified Professional Part Design Specialist Contact:,,, Cristian Ioan TARBĂ, PhD, is a lecturer at the University Politehnica of Bucharest. He became a member of the Manufacturing Engineering Department in 2009, after seven years working as a CAD and CAM engineer, using different software packages. He uses CATIA as the main tool for research and teaching activities for 13 years. He uses Part Design, Assembly Design, Generative Shape Design and Digital Mock-Up Kinematics workbenches in his lectures for both Romanian and foreign students. In the research activities, he also uses VBScripting and Python integrated with CATIA to complete his scientific work. In December 2020 he became a CATIA Champion, recognition issued by the Dassault Systèmes (Paris, France) for his long-term commitment in promoting and using PLM System CATIA. CATIA Champion Contact: Saša ĆUKOVIĆ, is a postdoc and Marie Sklodowska Curie fellow at the Institute for Biomechanics (IfB/LMB, Prof. Dr William Taylor), ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He played a leading role in a spinal 3D modeling under the research project III41007 financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of Republic of Serbia. Saša Ćuković was a Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship holder at ETH Zurich, DAAD grant holder at Technical University of Munich (Germany), and OeAD grant holder at TU Graz and MedUni Vienna (Austria) working on non-invasive diagnosis of spinal deformities. His main research interests include CAD/CAM systems, reverse engineering and non-invasive 3D reconstruction and modeling in engineering and medicine, computational biomechanics, augmented reality and computer vision. He has valuable teaching experience and few books in domain of CAD/CAM published within University of Kragujevac. He also disseminated his knowledge in various projects and in teaching abroad. He authored/co-authoredfive books and more than 80 papers. Since 2019 he is a senior scientific associate of the Institute for Information Technologies (IIT) Kragujevac, Serbia. He is a group leader at ETH/IfB/LMB for computational 3D biomechanics of the spine and senior member of IEEE. In December 2020 he became a CATIA Champion, recognition issued by the Dassault Systèmes (Paris, France) for his long-term commitment in promoting and using PLM System CATIA. CATIA Champion Contact:,
Summary note
This tutorial textbook is an essential companion to using CATIA v5 to assist with computer-aided design. Using clear CAD examples, it demonstrates the various ways through which the potential of this versatile software can be used to aid engineers in 3D modelling. Based on 20 years of teaching experience, the authors present methods of using CATIA v5 to model solid and surface parts, to perform parametric modelling and design of families of parts, reconstruction of surfaces, to create macros and to apply various tools and their options during 3D modelling. Importantly, this book will also help readers to discover multiple modelling solutions and approaches to solve common issues within design engineering. With a comprehensive approach, this book is suitable for both beginners and those with a good grasp of CATIA v5. Featuring an end chapter with questions and solutions for self-assessment, this book also includes 3D modelling practice problems, presented in the form of 2D engineering drawings of many 3D parts in both orthogonal and isometric views. Using the knowledge gained through reading the book chapters, users will learn how to approach surfaces and solids as 3D models using CATIA v5. This book provides detailed explanations, using clear figures, annotations and links to video tutorials. It is an ideal companion for any student or engineer using CATIA v5, in industries including automotive, naval, aerospace and design engineering. Readers of this book should note that the length and distance dimensions are in millimeters and the angular dimensions are in degrees. All other parameters, such as radii, areas and volumes, also use the metric system.
