CATIA V5 - GSD - Review Part history

Many of us design parts or receive models that are quite complex. To go through the spec tree is a long and difficult task. In Generative Shape design (Surfacing) there's a nice hidden feature that allows you to review the part history quickly without having to run the  "Define In work object" function. It give you a good insight into how the part was modelled which makes modifications easier.

CATIA V5 - Sheetmetal - MultiBody approach

With Sheetmetal multi-body capabilities, designers can decompose parts following a logical representation, simplifing partbodies exchange and enabling a better understanding of the design. CATIA Sheetmetal Design provides the user with a sketcher that allows rapid definition and edition of sheet metal part profiles.
