  • Although technically not a Dress-Up Feature, POCKET is a tool that is used often. Unlike HOLE, the feature to PUNCH must be defined in SKETCHER mode since it is user defined, not just a hole.pocket


  • The first thing to do is pick the face that you want to pocket the void through, then pick SketcherLine is picked14

  • In Sketcher, pick the proper shape icon from the Primary toolbar, and sketch the shape ON THE 3D PART represented in sketcher. Once this is done, EXIT sketcher to return to 3D modeNotice that the shape that will eventually become a hole in your part is represented in the part tree as Sketch2Sketched circle15

  • This is how your part will look once you have returned to 3D. The sketch you made will appear flat on the face you chose. If it is not orange, choose it to make it active and ready for pocketingNow click on POCKET from the Sketcher Based Features toolbarNotice that in our 3D part the sketch we made was not orange immediately when we returned to 3D mode. NO PROBLEM.we just need to either pick it manually from the object we are creating, or directly from the parts tree.sketchpocket16

  • With POCKET picked, the POCKET DEFINITION input box will appear. Input the desired information and Catia will show you a dashed line sketch of your pocket. If all the information is correct, push APPLY and hole will appear in 3D, then push OK to make it permanent.Notice POCKET1 is active on the action tree.17

The Edge Fillet Definition box will appear, which you will fill in with the appropriate info. RADIUS is the size of the fillet and OBJECTS lists the number of faces that you are going to fillet. The box also allows you to pick the propagation of the fillet (Tangency is the best for now). Orange means it is pickedNoted on the tree21
