Mechanical & Shape Designer

CATIA Mechanical & Shape Designer role allows the users to create and complete highly complex mechanical products and parts, from conceptual to detailed phases. To that end, the most comprehensive process coverage is available, including high-quality surface & part design, assembly creation, mechanism motion, 3D mock-up review and drawing generation. Thanks to the complete integration within the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, It is possible to share modifications at the object level and work concurrently in teams on the same product. And to accelerate the design process, users also benefit from all CATIA modeler capabilities, including direct modeling technology, functional design, advanced feature-based approach, tolerant modeling capabilities and knowledgeware design automation.
