Supporting a Wide Range of Engineering Processes

As products and experiences continue to increase in complexity, performance and quality targets are becoming more demanding. CATIA answers that challenge, enabling the rapid development of high-quality mechanical products.

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. 

CATIA Engineering provides the platform, which enables engineers to create any type of 3D assembly, for a wide range of engineering processes.


CATIA Engineering Key Benefits

Model Anything

CATIA is known for its high geometric accuracy. It is so robust; engineers can quickly iterate without the model failing.

Reuse Geometry

CATIA makes working with MultiCAD data easy and supports reverse engineering.

Work on Large Assemblies

3DEXPERIENCE CATIA ensures efficient assembly design and fast retrieval of large assemblies.

Manage Product Data and Adapt to Differing Needs

3DEXPERIENCE CATIA integrates PLM, so engineers never leave the design environment

Learn It Easily

Contextual menus, streamlined commands, action pad, and consistent logic enhance user efficiency

Realizing Productivity Gains

With 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA's superior modeling and assembly management capabilities, engineers can expect to see a 20% to 50% gain in productivity. Then, if you complement it with the unified modeling and simulation environment and powerful design for manufacturability capabilities, and tie it all together with integrated data management on a collaboration platform, you can expect an additional 30% productivity improvement, depending on your usage and industry.

How to optimize your design with MODeling & SIMulation ?

MODSIM unifies modeling and simulation on a common data model within a single user experience on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The goal is to consider the whole product development process and break down barriers.

With  products becoming more complex, the faster you can validate your product by simulation, the more time you’ll have to find the best innovative technical solution. MODSIM enables a simulation-empowered shift-left strategy that pulls verification and validation upfront in the concept phase of the design. The design engineer can investigate multiple design options and select the one closest to the requirement specification. Engineering decisions are facilitated by visualizing physical simulation variants of multiple 3D model alternatives. By using the so-called Design Of Experience process, the design engineer reduces the risk of late-stage failures and reworks.
