3DEXPERIENCE CATIA R2021x What's new

CATIA, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud platform, enables companies of any size to achieve engineering excellence via its powerful array of social and collaborative 3D modelling and simulation tools. 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA can model any product, at any scale, so engineers, designers and contributors can effortlessly imagine, define and shape products virtually before committing to a prototype.

The powerful features of 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA on the cloud will enable you to accelerate innovation, get products to market faster and climb to the top of a tough, competitive market.  Get rid of the headache and risks associated with backups, software upgrades, and costly IT infrastructure so you can focus on what matters.

CATIA, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud platform, delivers:   

  • A Social design environment built on a single source of truth and accessed through powerful 3D dashboards that drive business intelligence, real-time concurrent design and collaboration across all stakeholders including mobile workers.
  • An  Instinctive 3DEXPERIENCE, for both experienced and occasional users with world-class 3D modeling and simulation capabilities that optimize the effectiveness of every user.
  • An Inclusive product development platform that is easily integrated with existing processes & tools. This enables multiple disciplines to leverage powerful and integrated specialist applications across all phases of the product development process.

Design & Styling For Product Excellence

From 3D sketching, subdivision surface, Class-A modeling to 3D printing, reverse engineering, visualization and experience, 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA provides all the solutions for design  creativity, surface excellence and product experience.

3DEXPERIENCE CATIA for engineering

Engineering Excellence

Mechanical engineers equipped with CATIA 3D Modeling tools can gain insight into key factors of quality and performance early in the product development phase. Digital prototyping, combined with digital analysis and simulation, allows product development teams to virtually create and analyze a mechanical product in its operating environment.

Cross-Discipline Systems Development Process

Cross-Discipline Systems Development

The Systems Engineering solution fully integrates the cross-discipline modeling, simulation, verification and business process support needed for developing complex ‘cyber-physical’ products. It enables organizations to quickly and easily evaluate requests for changes or develop new products or system variants, while utilizing a unified performance based systems engineering approach that reduces the overall cost of system and product development.

3DEXPERIENCE CATIA for Construction


The design and engineering processes for construction requires close collaboration among multiple participants across all project phases. Additionally, increasingly complex construction projects require that all teams rely on 3D as a common language to facilitate collaboration and reduce rework between phases. 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA allows architects and engineers to build beyond the limits of traditional project delivery methods by delivering a range of 3D modeling solutions that span all design and engineering phases.
