Give shape to the world around us
What you can get with CATIA
CATIA offers the unique opportunity not only to model any given product, but to do so within the context of its behaviour in the real world: design in the era of experience. Systems architects, engineers, designers and all of their collaborators can define the world that connects us, imagine it and give it shape.
CATIA is the world’s leading solution for product design and experience. Leading organisations in various sectors use it to develop the products we see and use in our day-to-day lives.
Benefits of CATIA
- A social design environment based on a single source of authenticity, which can be accessed via powerful 3D panels that promote business intelligence, simultaneous design in real time and the collaboration of all interested parties, including mobile workers.
- 3DEXPERIENCE® offers an intuitive experience with top-rate modelling and simulation functions in 3D that optimise the efficiency of all users, both regular and sporadic.
- It is an inclusive product development platform that is easy to integrate with existing processes and tools. This allows a number of disciplines to take advantage of the efficient and integrated specialised applications at all stages of the product development process.
CATIA’s design, engineering and systems engineering applications constitute the core of the experience-based solutions of Dassault Systèmes designed to meet specific needs of each sector. This represents a revolution in the conception, development and bringing to fruition of new products of organisations, whose innovative customer experiences also provide a significant advantage against the competition.
Disciplines of CATIA
DIGITAL CONTINUITY FOR BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE
The design and engineering processes for construction requires close collaboration among multiple participants across all project phases. Additionally, increasingly complex construction projects require that all teams rely on 3D as a common language to facilitate collaboration and reduce rework between phases.
3DEXPERIENCE® CATIA allows architects and engineers to build beyond the limits of traditional project delivery methods by delivering a range of 3D modeling solutions that span all design and engineering phases. This allows for complete digital continuity for diverse project teams on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.
CATIA DESIGN/STYLING FOR PRODUCT EXCELLENCE
DESIGN / STYLING
From product to transportation industries, the style & design of the product plays a major role in its success on the market. Develop shape & material creativity, reach a high level of surface sophistication & quality, and get the right decision tools with physical & virtual prototypes. These are the key elements of CATIA Design/Styling to boost design innovation.
From 3D sketching, subdivision surface, Class-A modeling to 3D printing, reverse engineering, visualization and experience, CATIA Design/Styling provides all the solutions for design creativity, surface excellence and product experience.
CATIA ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE
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.
MASTERING THE CROSS-DISCIPLINE SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
Developing smart products has never been more challenging. Developers need an integrated systems engineering approach that enables them to manage the complete development process. Requirements engineering, systems architecture definition, detailed modeling and simulation of complex systems and the development of embedded software all need to be mastered in the context of the complete product.
The Systems Engineering solution from Dassault Systèmes delivers a unique, open and extensible development platform – a platform that fully integrates the cross-discipline modeling, simulation, verification and business process support needed for developing complex ‘cyber-physical’ products. It enables organizations to quickly and easily evaluate requests for changes or develop new products or system variants, while utilizing a unified performance based systems engineering approach that reduces the overall cost of system and product development.
