CATIA Surface Refinement

Integrated Best-in-class Technologies

Reach Perfection in Surface Quality

Best of both worlds

High quality surface modeling is essential for successful product design.

All industries have to increase products sophistication to bring some differentiators on a more and more segmented market. If industrial design and communication keep being the mandatory path for success, the logical trend behind is to deliver the adequate level of perceived quality.

To produce a reliable surface model at the first attempt, the modeling software has to be able to implement the most advanced mathematics for G0 to G3 quality surfaces, curves and forms. To ensure the designer and the engineer get the results they really need; the software has to do this dynamically and interactively. This is the reason why CATIA provide the most advanced surface modeling products: CATIA Icem and ICEM Surf.

The perfect surface optimization

CATIA Icem and ICEM Surf together provide best complementary solution able to meet daily challenges.

As leading products, CATIA Icem and ICEM Surf both delivers new evolutions on a regular basis in response to customer needs, so that surface experts can:

  • Focus on what they do best: search for the perfect shape … and reach it on time
  • Focus on sophistication thanks to optimized workflow and dedicated framework
  • Eliminate low added value repetitive tasks


Taking benefits of both best 3D tools “CATIA and ICEM”, CATIA Icem provides the most advanced mathematic and comprehensive suite of tools to reach the highest quality of surface, by integrating the ICEM technology into CATIA. It allows creating, editing and analyzing any complex, aesthetical and ergonomic shapes to the highest Class-A surface quality.


The world-leading software solution used for Class-A surface modeling, surface analysis and design visualization. Our vision is to continue build upon ICEM Surf's acknowledged reputation in the surface modeling market place and address customers total needs and expectations throughout the digital surface design development process.
