Defining sketches

This is the fourth article of a series concerning how to implement and use modelling methodology in CATIA V5.Figure 1 -The skeleton geometrical set

In this article, we will discuss methodology and rules for sketch definition.
We will continue using the same Angle bracket example part, introduced in previous articles.

In previous articles, we have discussed the skeleton and its internal structure and organisation. The subsets are numbered so that the order of the subsets coincides with the order of element insertion, thus we can work sequentially inside the skeleton.

By this point, to start our article, we will consider that we have imported all necessary external data into our part and created all the necessary reference geometry.

All these elements are to be inserted in geometrical sets:

1. Input data and 2. Reference geometry.

As visible in figure-1, sketches are to be inserted inside geometrical sets:

3. Main sketches and 4. Auxiliary sketches, both inside the Skeleton.
