Based on CATIA and powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud, 3D INNOVATOR is the right full-cloud solution available for your challenges & learning purpose, ready to use from any browser and device!

Using highly automated generative modeling, create complex organic shapes with ease in seconds. This algorithmic approach to design allows easy creation of repetitive and non-regular shapes such as organically and bio inspired forms. Unleash full creativity by combining graph-based visual scripting and interactive 3D modeling, with the ability to use one or the other interchangeably at any time.


● Quickly create & explore organic shapes with digital clay modeling approach based on subdivision surface technology
● Design, explore and validate variants of complex, repetitive and non-regular shapes and patterns with an intuitive algorithmic approach
● Quickly generate 3D patterns for styling exploration
