Initially conceived as CAD software for the design of planes, CATIA has become one of the most important tools in the world of industrial design. Not only is it used in the aeronautical industry but also in the construction and automobile sectors by brands of the likes of Volkswagen, BMW, Renault, Daimler AG, Porsche or Peugeot using it for their designs.
Highly qualified aided design
As you can imagine, things have changed quite a lot since 1971 and nowadays, despite being an expensive paid program, we can download a free version for students to help them learn all about designing. it comes along with all the latest technology in the 3D computer-aided design field.
These are the sectors where this software is used the most:
- Aerospatial engineering.
- Automobile industry.
- Ship construction.
- Industrial equipment.
- Fluids systems.
As you can imagine, this software isn't very useful in the home sector due to its complexity. Especially because its main purpose is to provide us with professional highly qualified designs with a very accurate result.
