CATIA shifts traditional 3D CAD (computer‑aided design) expectations to cognitive augmented design, which fuses modeling and simulation. Leveraging knowledge, know‑how and proven technology to automate design and systems engineering, CATIA is helping to shape a connected world by offering all the features for design of connected objects and experiences powered by cyber‑systems.

CATIA affords an intuitive user experience, powered by 3D, Web services, and mobile and augmented reality technologies. CATIA ultimately allows innovator social communities to collaborate virtually and co‑design experiences. Lastly, through its cyber‑physical systems modeling and simulation capabilities, CATIA is integral to 3DEXPERIENCE-based industry solutions for model‑based systems engineering, enterprise architecture, concept modeling, and ontologies. These solutions enable global industry leaders to develop the “Internet of Experiences” – the smart and autonomous virtual experiences that digitally connect products, nature and life in the real world.
