CATIA is a multi-platform software suite for computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided engineering (CAE), PLM and 3D, developed by the French company Dassault System. Initial release in the year 1977. it runs on Microsoft Windows.
It is used for physical modelling in mechnaical and aerospace industries.
- it is used for composite design and manufacturing to improve the production of aerospace parts.
- save money and time by avoiding restoring the process of design with the automatic
- ability to manage multi-part geometries better than standard composite design software
CATIA is preferred over SolidWorks when it comes to implementing surface modeling. another advantage is that automobile aerospace sector can be done a lot more easily using CATIA Than SolidWorks
