CATIA: Product Design and 3DEXPERIENCE

Dassault Systèmes CATIA stands alone among 3D manufacturing CAD tools as the center of a next-generation social design ecosystem. 3D dashboards complement the design environment, facilitating business intelligence, engineering insight, and collaborative workflow. Other 3D CAD products treat social collaboration as an externality; collaboration is at the heart of the CATIA experience.

CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE is instinctive yet powerful. Experienced users are empowered by world-class modeling and simulation capabilities; occasional users are guided to be full contributors by the visual, experiential nature of the software. It is an empowering and transformative approach to product design.

CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE goes beyond physical product definition to model any product in the context of its real-life behavior. Systems architects, engineers, designers, and all contributors collaborate on fit, form, function, and customer experience.

CATIA design solutions use advanced technology to empower designers to deliver aesthetically pleasing and functionally superior products. Specific modules for Industrial Design and Advanced Surface Modeling cover the entire shape design, styling, and surfacing workflow. Advanced functions include reverse engineering, Class A surfacing, rapid propagation of design changes, real-time diagnosis, and high-end visualization.

CATIA engineering solutions are available as modular enhancements to the basic CATIA solution; they include solutions for cast and forged parts, plastic injection and molding, composites part design, sheet metal design, and advanced fastening operations.

CATIA systems engineering solutions enable a cross-discipline approach to managing multiple systems modeling and simulation applications. Systems engineering is essential in our fast-paced and increasingly complex manufacturing age, to detect unexpected system interactions during validation and verification. Specific modules for systems engineering include Systems Architecture; Electrical systems; Fluid Systems; and Multi-physics systems.
