I love the generative shape design workbench. The complex surfaces you can create has greatly enhanced my work quality

It’s hard to be familiar with quickly and the user interface seems outdated. It could also enhance its composite workbench

If you want to deal with complex designs, extended surfaces; e.g automobile body structures, this is the software to use. However for less complex part or tool/mold designs you may prefer Solidworks due to its cost advantages.

The best thing for Catia V5 is for sure the high capability for surface modelling. Complex surfaces can be designed easily with the extensive library and the functions Catia provide. That's why this is the #1 software used in Automotive for creating the designs. There are lots of features to shape your design product. Creating assemblies and defining movement for the assembly structures also possible and can be managed easily after some experience. If you know parametric design principles, Catia can work wery well with this principle. There is also a broad material library available for your selection, you can even add new material or properties.

Probably the first and the only thing to mention about Catia V5 is the interface. Although I like to use Catia due to its extensive features; I do not like the somehow retro interface, ribbon and menu designs. Therefore main screen makes you feel little bit uncomfortable. More than this, I think Catia has does not have cons to mention.

In summary, Catia is the best software in CAD world for me. It allows user to design a part from basic level to upper advanced. That's why it's preferred in industry.

There a lot of things to emphasize. However to be more precise, I'm using for metal and plastic part design and it serves great. Generative sheet metal tool is very helpful and tools under this tab half the time while designing a metal part. In addition user stamping is a great way to design brackets amd evaluate producing process.

There are lots of tools I didn't feel so comfortable in the beginning about ease of use. But got used to it.

With the we have simulated elements related to the design of the product and also its production

CATIA was born from the need for a design tool for the aeronautical industry, years of Dassault experience have refined a platform designed for the life cycle of a product, since it is born in thought until it becomes obsolete in some way, it has unique functionalities for the design of products, fijence I say products and not merely design, that is the philosophy of CATIA, you can simulate the production, the processes, the supply chains, without a doubt the Fifth Essence of this market.

I think the only disadvantage that it has is its price and the modest network of partners for support.

CATIA is an excellent software that has make our job work too easier. CATIA software offers large number of functionalities that is linked with other CAD softwares.With best manufacturing tool opportunity,it enables us to design complex parts. CATIA provides the fantastic space for user.It has unique fuctions for designing products. Moreover one can simulate the production.

Learning curve of CATIA software is quite higher and it is indeed most intuitive software.In the beginning it's layout seems to be quite difficult but when we have good command on basic functions then CATIA becomes easier for us within a few days and it can be done quite efficiently. Sometimes CATIA software takes a lot of time in downloading files but it is a minor issue.

It's a functional design tool, but users are not happy for the interface.

You can work on any design on Catia. It has several modules which you can customize for your needs, such as mechanical, electrical, manufacturing tools. You can also work with parametric for any dimentions that can be connected with a formula and variables. It is well integrated with PLMs.

User interface has not been changed for years which feels it's old. You should be trained well to use all functions. It may take some time to open/import data from different types.

I really like it's set of different tools for different operations. The work space of catia v6 is great. It's server based system is really helpful.

The rendering tools need to be updated. In catia v6 assembly workbench is the combination of assembly and kinematic workbench. So, it may difficult to use at initial time.

At first I didn't want to migrate from Pro/Engineer to CATIA, but now I will never go back.

After years of using competing software (Autodesk Mechanical Desktop, ProEngineer and SolidEdge) I started working in the car design and manufacturing industry (500,000 cars per year) which designed most of the parts or received designs from its suppliers. I think that CATIA is fast, responsible, simple and very well structured for handling from simple to complex parts. The finite element analysis is very good and making dynamic assemblies works like a charm. I honestly believe that stands out from his competitors by being fast responsive and relatively simple to use.

The graphic design of the software (at least v5) looks outdated (menus and toolbars) which is a minor issue when compared to the speed of the software.

Catia is one of the best 2D and 3D creation program for manufacturers. Catia is connected to PLM software. You can create all kinds of parts with Catia without any problem.

My experience has been good, after using CATIA for three years I feel satisfied with the knowledge I’ve built up of the software.

The software is very robust and has all of the needed commands. I attended a class and was able to get up and running with it.

CATIA software has wide collection of tools. It is being used worldwide by lot of users. I was suggested to use it by one of my friend who had excellent command on this. When I started using it was a little difficult to know how to use it in the best way, but after some experience it had become easy to use. I consider CATIA is the best software for 3D components, architectural designing and for blue printing.

To me, I have not a single complaint about this software. Just want to say the licensing cost should be reduced for users because that will be more easy for spreading this software in the market. Meanwhile it has interesting features and functionality and great customer services.

On the whole its a good software to use and requires much less computational power when compared to solidworks. Can definitely be used to do basic CAD work without much rendering.

Well once you get the hang of it its pretty simple to use. Its easy to provide constraints and animate your CAD products on this software.

It has a pretty considerable learning curve and also the hotkeys are not that prominent when compared to Solidworks. The rendering are definitely better in solidworks.

If you're in automotive industry and not have your own design tool; then Catia is your must to use design software. It is the most complex and capable design tool and perfect for surface modelling. Yes it is not much user friendly and hard to become an expert user; but these doesn't enough to drop Catia V5 from number one seat...

I'm working with Catia V5 for a long time. I've used other programs such as Solidworks as well; but Catia is the best by far due to it's features. Catia is the most complex tool for part design and assembly management. For instance creating complex large surfaces with Catia (which is a must for automotive industry) is really easy thing to do. Variety of manipulating tools (turn, pan, rotate, etc.) makes you to easily view or manage the designed part. There are several modules which you can add many features to your part when managing the design. There are several material libraries to use for your product. Product tree is detailed and let you to manage the design steps e.g. to make parametric design. Catia is very powerful and fast; but sure you do need a good hardware as well. Creating 2D drawing is a bit complicated; but can be managed easier when you got used to it.

Probably biggest drawback for Catia is that you really need to spend years to become an expert user (not designer). It's a bit complicated compared to some other design tools. Mouse function is a bit hard to control - for example you need multiple buttons to rotate. Also interface is a bit old fashioned. V5 had many upgrades so far; but I assume it's time for V6 now for a better outlook. 2D generation module is really poor; therefore we mostly use other tools to create 2D's. License fee can be an issue for personal or small company usages.

It helped me and my colleagues to design very complex parts and the tools to manufacture them, for more than 10 years now.

I really enjoy the very large choice of functionnalities offered by Catia regarding with other CAD softwares. In addition, the graphism is really fluid and pleasant. I understand why it is one of the most used softwares for 3D design.

It takes sometimes a long time for me to find the most appropriate functionnality among the large choice when I don't know yet it. Hopefully, the provided help is well documented. With experience, it is always easier.

Catia is an extremely powerful design software and it is great to use once you are fully trained.

Catia can do basically anything you want from a graphical design standpoint. My company designs very complicated 2D and 3D models of tires and Catia can do it with ease.

Learning to use the software is very time-consuming. Because of the thousands of functions and tools at your disposal, the learning curve is steep. However once you're a pro, it's great.

This software gives you the liberty to rearrange tool pallets and it makes the software more easier to use. This software can also be used to architecture, as it offers wall tools to help create building plan very efficiently.

In the beginning, it's difficult to grasp the interface quickly and tools are not very intuitive as compared to other software. It needs a planning to know all the options in short time. But In my experience with this software is splendid. And it won't be wrong to say that this software is my number one choice when it comes to perfect designing.

Although it still has some cons, Catia is best especially in Aviation and Automotive industries due to having complex parts and assemblies. It is always an advantage to know how to work with Catia.

As an engineer who is working in automotive industry, I can easily say that Catia is most common 3D program. It is great for designing complex parts and assembly. This is the reason of why Catia is most popular 3D program in Aviation and Automotive industries which have prettly complex part and assemblies. Material library of Catia also makes the study easier for engineers.

The main issue I have with Catia is with product tree. I really do not know why it is not fixed. When you try to do something else, sometimes product tree disappears. Another issue I have with drawing generation which is really not easy to do in Catia. I think it needs to be improved.

Great, it has become favorite of the users when it comes to design and drafting the models.

Catia is a wonderful tool and very effective to create the complex geometries and large assemblies. The best feature of this tool is its surfacing capability. It is also mostly used by the automobile manufacturers to design their products.

The only thing that matters here is its little difficult user interface and accessibility. Rest of the features if this software are worth for a designer to use.

CATIA works well for modeling complex designs and dealing with assemblies, and also helping with analysis for production line assembly and manufacturing through stamping, molding, injection, and others. CATIA also integrates very well with Teamcenter, the PLM software which we use in our company, making it easy to upload files and dealing with approval processes for new designs - although the time it takes for loading parts and saving could be reduced to improve productivity.

Easy modeling with production steps in mind; Surface modeling is pretty intuitive and makes possible to design complex geometries faster; Model edit is practical, making possible to edit a geometry parameter and rerun the program to have the new parameters ready; CATIA works very well for assemblies too, it makes possible to easily attach parts and bind specific parameters, also to hide parts that are not desirable for the analysis.

The software is pretty heavy, even with computers designed for heavy-duty loads, resulting in long wait times to load files and make changes, reducing productivity; User Interface is not that friendly, too many features which can get confusing.

It is the best package program I've ever used. You can do anything what you need and more with CATIA. But you need more experience than similars and I strongly suggest to get serious training or work with tutorials before try to do some work with it.

CATIA has lots of module inside and you can use these to create 3D model, 2D drawing, optimize your design for manufacturing (ex: sheet metal option) etc.

It is not that easy to use and you must learn all the modules and capabilities to complete your work and it takes time. It is the natural consequence of all that features in one package but I think it can be updated to better user interface.

For the begginers, who are searching for any Modelling software this is the best one. It is very much user friendly and easily accessible.

I create large motor boats with large assemblies and i use Catia and NX on a daily basis. I have no problem managing the boat and the parts but when it comes to modelling in Catia i find incredibly tedious and very time consuming. Some days are very frustrating using this software as it is still very buggy. And when i contact helpdesk, they just reply 'oh yes, we know about that. This will be fixed in the next version!*

Managing large assemblies is particularly good with Enovia V6. I frequently open large assys containing up to 3-4000 parts (some of these individual parts are even 500MB each) and i have no problem with rotating the model with too much lag. The perspective view and general rendering of the parts is very good and quite impressive compared to other top CAD engineering packages.

Catia is not an easy package to learn. The UX is very over complicated and you really have to be shown by another user how to grasp the endless mouse clicking menus as they are not straight forward. After using Siemens NX for 10 years and then having to learn Catia was a nightmare. Catia takes far longer to model compared to other CAD packages. After 1 year with NX i didnt have a problem with creating anything, it was very reliable and I knew i could have a solution within a certain period of time. With Catia i never know how long something will take. It is far more unstable and it crashes very frequently.

Normally I use it weekly for designing some mechanical pieces because of my job and my feelings are very good with Catia. You can create pieces really fast and export them in any file format to send them to any client.

This software is really good on its work speed. It's faster than others I ever tried. Like its user interface is really simple, any PC can run it.

Something implicit in its work speed, is the user interface like I say before. For working faster than others design softwares, it's needed to relieve quality to the drawing. That's why it could be simple at the first sight.

Overall the CATIA is good choice for 3D modeling. It is more user-friendly and even a biginner can use it with free mind

I n my view the most usefulness of Dessault Systems CATIA is it's ease of use. Even with a mouse you can do a lot of things. Rendering is neat and fast. The hardware and system requirements are quiet comparable. Another most important is it's low cost among the rivels. Even with low cost it provides decent features and it makes the CATIA a good choice for 3D modeling

In my user experience the most annoying thing is it's interface. It is outdated. But I think that outdated design makes the software easy to use even in low hardware configuration.

Great CAD software. Has a lot of functionality that can takes a long time to learn, but can do amazing things.

Very expensive software when there are others that have the same features for less.

It is very easy to do anything we want to do via this software from drawing and solid body to surface modeling... The space of CATIA is fantastic for user.it will be more if i say this is the best Solid Modeling Program in the whole market everywhere we look for such soft wares...

Sometimes CATIA takes a little long while downloading our files and this makes the whole work a little boring for doer. And i also know that it is not a big issue for a software it usually happens while using other ones as well.So this is the great for me .

I loved the challenge of learning this software. It was different than most other services, but still very capable. I would recommend this to people who are very familiar with CAD software already as I don't think this is for beginners. Especially if you plan on using other software later on.

This software can do most anything you need it to. From solid body modeling and drawings, to surface modeling and more.

The terminology is different than most other CAD services. This takes a while to get used to. Although, if you get used to the pictures or short cut keys, this won't be too much of a problem.

Great drawings great ability to brainstorm and look over prints and data.

I truly like the engineering team can review CAD data, 3D data, and details about what the customer wants in this software. There is also great training that this vendor offers about greater possibilities when using to design parts.

Just offers somewhat expensive and we have to purchase an entire year in advance in order to get in half decent deal on it. Doesn't make it so much time of negotiating price and looking over the terms but all in all we do get what we need done and make the customer happy with that drawings by using the software.

CATIA is a very complete CAD software. From modeling to animation and rendering this software is the "swiss army knife" of 3D conception.

Everyone is talking about it high price, but I think that this argument can be excused because designing a multi-million dollar aircraft using a software can be a bad idea.
