Stands for Computer Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application, CATIA is the most powerful Knowledge-based and widely used CAD (Computer Aided Design) software of its kind in the world. CATIA has been created by Dassault Systems of France and is marketed & technically supported worldwide by IBM. The software is being used by designers, manufacturing facilities, assemblers, architects, industrial engineers, etc.


Have a Look around you. Everything and Anything you see had to be designed before manufacturing. The desk you are using, the chair you are sitting in, your daily use appliances, your car, your home, etc.
The list is almost endless. Nearly Everything is being designed on computers. CATIA plays a major role in the design process. The software is being used by the majority of automotive and aerospace industries for automobile and aircraft products and its auxiliaries and tooling design. Thousands of Engineering companies throughout the world over are using CATIA, thus making CATIA an Essential tool.


CATIA users are generally Aerospace, Appliances, Architecture, Automotive, Construction, Consumer Goods, Electronics, Medical, Furniture, Machinery, Mold and Die, and Shipbuilding industries. CATIA has played a major role in NASA’s design of the various Space equipment. Beside this CATIA has also been used as Vital tool for designing “jet-fighter” aircraft, aircraft carriers, helicopters, tanks and various other forms of weaponry extensively used by the Defense Sector. Catia is used throughout the North American and European continents, as well as Australia. Apart from this CATIA is increasingly being used by Asian countries like India, Japan, etc.
