This is the fifth article of a series concerning how to implement and use modelling methodology in CATIA V5.

Figure 3-PartBody structure, with functional groups - CATIA MODELLING METHODOLOGYIn this article, we will discuss the modelling stage in detail.  This is the second stage of the creation process; we already have all the elements defined in the Skeleton group, so now is the time to start modelling the solid geometry.

We discussed, in article 2, the Hierarchy rule that stratifies all elements in a part file into different levels. For the modelling stage, we will be creating elements presented in the last level of the Hierarchy rule; solid geometry features.

The fact they all belong to the last level of the Hierarchy rule is does not mean that we can create features at random without having to worry about their order, far from it in fact. Figure 1 represents the model as it was at the end of the Design stage, discussed in articles 3 and article 4.
