Industry-Leading Software Solution for Every Stage from Design to Manufacturing

CATIA is widely known for its large assembly design and advanced surfacing functionality. However, design is only the foundation of CATIA; it also offers a wide array of modules you can add for advanced capabilities from G3 surfacing, to composites, to kinematic simulation, to other complete PLM solutions.

There are two proven solutions when it comes to the CATIA ecosystem. CATIA V5, which has been widely adopted by the industry for the last 20 years, offers a robust solution installed directly to your workstation. CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE is the latest technology, created to mirror every aspect of V5, except it is connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud and has an updated user interface and enhanced collaboration tools.

If you are designing large, complex models like are often found in the aerospace, automotive, or marine industries, CATIA can vastly improve your design-to-manufacturing process. Whether you choose CATIA V5 or CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, you will be part of a vast network of professionals and have the foundation for a complete design-to-manufacturing solution. The possibilities are endless.

HOW CAN HAWK RIDGE SYSTEMS HELP?

The team at Hawk Ridge Systems is fueled by the need to provide best-in-class services and support. We have been “in the huddle” with engineers like you to solve design challenges for over 20 years.

  • We have worked closely with several SOLIDWORKS customers struggling with extremely large assemblies. Instead of completely switching all design aspects to CATIA, we successfully introduced what we like to call the hybrid process. This process continues to use SOLIDWORKS for all product design and CATIA to compile it all together, taking advantage of its large assembly support.
  • Often our customers are required to view CATIA models or even create their designs in CATIA to satisfy a specific contract. This is something we are very experienced with and have helped many companies satisfy this requirement.
  • We work with a lot of contractors, and it is quite common for certain jobs to require CATIA for several months, then not use it at all for a period, before needing it again for a new job. We see this all the time and have the perfect solution with term licensing: activate it when you need it for a set amount of time and only renew what you need.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Should I choose CATIA V5 or CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE?
This is a very common question. First off, both products are going to be around for the foreseeable future, and both can be leased quarterly or yearly. Leasing lets you get started right away and change platforms when you are ready if you choose. We typically suggest that if you are working with stakeholders running a certain version, it’s a good idea to stick with that. If you are not working directly partners and you want the latest in technology, CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE might be a good fit.
I am looking at both SOLIDWORKS and CATIA, which is right for me?
It really depends on your unique situation. Most cases typically lean toward SOLIDWORKS because it is designed to be easy to learn and can handle most designs. CATIA really is for exceptionally large, complex designs. Both platforms are purpose driven. Give us a call and we will look at your specific needs to guide you in the right direction.
We are a startup and work with several companies using CATIA. We need CATIA today but may or may not need it for future projects.
The best option would be to go with term licensing; this is a lease that can be set up for 3 months or annually. If you do not know what package you need to go with or how long you will need it, it is a good option for getting started fast.
If we choose to go with CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE and need to revert back to V5 later, will that be a problem?
CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE has a roll-back function for exporting to previous versions. These exports will open in previous versions such as V5, however, the feature tree will be missing and will import as a solid body.
With CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, where are my files being saved on the cloud?
All files are saved on secure DS servers using banking-level security technology.
How easy is it to tack on a new CATIA module later?
Both versions allow for easy future additions. If you require more capabilities, we will get that added to your existing license and help you with licensing and installation.
