Industry-Leading Design To Manufacturing Software

CATIA is renowned for its large assembly design and advanced surfacing capabilities. Beyond its foundational design features, CATIA offers a range of modules for advanced functionalities, including G3 surfacing, composites, kinematic simulation, and comprehensive PLM solutions.

There are two main solutions within the CATIA ecosystem: CATIA V5, a longstanding industry standard installed directly to workstations, and CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, a cloud-connected platform with updated UI and enhanced collaboration tools.

Whether in aerospace, automotive, or marine industries, CATIA streamlines design-to-manufacturing processes for large, complex models. Whether you opt for CATIA V5 or CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, you’ll join a global network of professionals with access to a complete design-to-manufacturing solution. Endless possibilities await.

Frequently Asked Questions


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.

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.
