Machine & Equipment Designer

Finding ways to reduce design-to-manufacturing cycles is a key priority for industrial companies. The required solution must be highly productive and flexible, fostering collaboration even in a wide geographical context and allowing design changes with controlled impacts.

CATIA Machine and Equipment Designer provides users with world-class tools to design simple to highly sophisticated machine & equipments.

Users can create any 3D part and assembly, with data exchange and coexistence with other systems. Real-time Collaboration allows teams to work together, regardless of location. A full suite of powerful functions allows defining components with custom behaviors and supports engineering connections and mechanism animation, also including tubing and piping, sheetmetal and welding capabilities.
