Body In White Designer

Body in white design teams need to quickly create or modify a car body in an associative styling and engineering context, taking into account the manufacturability of the created body. CATIA Body in White Design Engineering is an advanced product that uses unique skilled features to boost body in white design phase productivity. 

CATIA extends its unique functional modeling technology to surfacing for the Body-in-White community. Functional modeling capability enables users to focus on and capture their design intent, by freeing themselves from the sequence in which they model and by associating behaviors with design features, thereby decreasing design complexity. It also brings greater flexibility to evaluate multiple design variations in a short time frame

These powerful tools allow body in white design teams to quickly create or modify a car body in an associative styling and engineering context.
