The 3D Insight product has been developed to comply with FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) certification policies which require there be only one model and one modifier, a primary engineer, during the entire development, deployment, manufacturing and management lifecycle.
3D Insight is especially dedicated to collaborators who need to access and use the 3D product definition. It provides review capabilities (including 3D tolerancing and annotations) and allows users to perform a precise analysis of the geometric product definition. 3D Insight does not allow users to save or export the created/modified data in order to prevent any changes of the 3D product definition.
3D Insight allows exact sectioning, exact measurement, sketch examination, construction and additional geometry creation for analysis, 3D Functional Tolerancing & Annotation (FTA) and 2D Layout for 3D Design (LO1) data review mark-up. It disallows the user to save the created data or to export it. Users can perform geometric analysis of the product within the manufacturing/assembly/inspection tooling context.
Product Structure capabilities
Interactive Drafting for drawings production
IGES and STEP Interfaces
DMU Navigator, DMU Dimensioning and Tolerancing Review for reviewing and model interrogation
Wireframe and Surface for non persistent data authoring
Product Key Customer Benefits
Product Structure capabilities 3D Insight offers a subset of the Product Structure product without the ability to save the created data. It defines mechanical assembly constraints, automatically positions parts, and checks assembly consistency. For further details about the CATIA Assembly Design 1 (AS1) application abilities, please refer to the product description.
Interactive Drafting for Drawing Production 3D Insight offers a subset of Interactive Design product without the capability to save the imported data and to export in any 2D format. Users can address 2D design and drawing production requirements. For further details about the CATIA Interactive Drafting 1 (ID1) application abilities, please refer to the product description.
IGES and STEP Interfaces 3D Insight offers a subset of IGES and STEP Interfaces: you can import data but you cannot export data. CATIA - IGES helps users working in a heterogeneous CAD/CAM environment to exchange data through the neutral IGES format. With STEP, users can read and write data in STEP AP214 and STEP AP203 data formats. For further details about the IGES and STEP application abilities (IG1, ST1), please refer to the product descriptions.
DMU Navigator, DMU Dimensioning and Tolerancing Review for Reviewing and Model Interrogation 3D Insight offers a subset of DMU Navigator and DMU Dimensioning & Tolerancing Review products without the ability to save the data. CATIA DMU Navigator allows users to perform a collaborative digital mock-up review using powerful visualization, navigation, and communication tools. The DMU Dimensioning and Tolerancing Review allows users to visualize, query, and filter mechanical dimensioning and tolerancing information. For further details about the DMU Navigator and DMU Dimensioning and Tolerancing application abilities (DN1, DT1), please refer to the product descriptions.
Wireframe and Surface for Non-persistent Data Authoring 3D Insight offers a subset of the Wireframe & Surface product without the capability to save the created data. Users can create in-context wireframe construction elements and basic surfaces. For further details about the application abilities for the Wireframe and Surface (WS1) product, please refer to the product description.
V4 Integration 3D Insight offers a subset of the V4 Integration product. It helps existing CATIA Version 4 customers take advantage of the advanced technologies of Version 5 while preserving their investment in V4 data. For further details about the V4 Integration (V4i) application abilities, please refer to the product description.
