  • Explore different design variants to optimize product topology and test frequency, displacement, stress and manufacturing constraints.
  • Take your testing to the next level with VR and 3D printing to get the best results.

From product design to consumer experience

Today's product designers and decision-makers are facing a paradigm shift in design: consumers expect much more than conventional product design. It is necessary to make the transition to customer-centric design and create aesthetically appealing, but also complex, innovative and sustainable products and product experiences.
3DEXPERIENCE CATIA’s Creative Design solutions are specifically conceived to give designers total flexibility and unparalleled creative power, thanks to the critical benefits of collaborative tools, digital continuity, and intuitive 3D design.

All the CAD tools you need to create - sketch, model, shape, prototype and test - available online

Our solutions are cloud-based, meaning they are always up to date on all your devices, with nothing to install or configure. Everyone working on your project can access the latest version of a file and work on a single source of truth in a unified virtual environment. Easily use innovative design methodologies and cloud collaboration from your browser, ensuring secure collaboration with ecosystem stakeholders, full control over design and file access, sharing, 3D visualization, and product review anywhere, any time.
