CATIA Creative Design

A unified industrial design workflow solution
CATIA Creative Design address the product development process with a dedicated, integrated and complete creative solution, for you to express your creativity and invent the products your customers are dreaming about.

Concept Creative Design

The ideal workflow solution for industrial design 

It empowers you to import your 2D sketch and to explore ideas by sketching in 3D with CATIA Natural Sketch. Sculpt in 3D with ultra-fast vitrual clay modeling thanks to subdivision surfaces technology. Create precise shapes with NURBS Surface modeling and Direct Solid Modeling. Compose your product with automated assembly features. Visualize your product and work on colors & trims with high-end real-time visualization, and photo-realistic rendering with mental ray. Standard exports are managed through STEP and IGES formats and STL files for rapid prototyping.

“Enticing, inspirational and intuitive! the strokes look like real pencil on paper and its great fun to sketch. But it's a parametric 3d sketch for creating precise geometry - how cool is that!" Jens PAULUS, Jens Paulus Design

Creative Design

Advanced solution to create and visualize style shape

Providing all the advanced freeform NURBS surfacing tools, from early concept modeling to industrialized surfacing ready for production. CATIA Industrial Design Refinement also provides designers with developed shape features to unwrap & wrap surfaces. CATIA Industrial Design refinement offer also CATIA Live Rendering for interactive ray-tracing and global illumination to produce physical correct imagery or to run interactive design reviews.

"Discovering the new CATIA for Creative Designers solution was very fascinating as it enables me to literally draw in 3D… It offers a direct translation of the idea I have in mind into the 3D world and takes care of all the uncomfortable parts of the process…" - Pauline Deltour, Product Designer.

Creative Design for Transportation

Reach perfection in surface quality

CATIA Icem Shape Design provides the most advanced mathematic and comprehensive suite of tools to reach the highest quality of surface. It allows to create, edit and analyze any complex, aesthetical and ergonomic shapes to the highest Class-A surface quality. Starting from basic inputs such as design sketches or point-clouds from physical prototypes, you can bring your design to Class-A surface quality and ready for manufacturing.
