3DEXPERIENCE Mechanical Designer - Professional

As a certified 3DEXPERIENCE Mechanical Designer - Professional, you have proven your knowledge and skills with CATIA modeling techniques after initial training and a minimum of three months of regular practice using CATIA Mechanical Design core products (Part Design, Assembly Design, and Drafting).

This exam proposes hands-on challenges based on industrial use cases that will require you to design, modify and analyze parts and assemblies. Understanding of design intent and drafting principles is assessed in multiple-choice questions.
