What is CATIA Engineering Excellence for CATIA V5 users?

Our CATIA Engineering Excellence Offer packages are beneficial upgrades for CATIA V5 users that provide applications and features designed to assist SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) in achieving the highest levels of engineering and excelling in their end-to-end processes.

CATIA Engineering Excellence packages provide an advanced set of applications that extend the functionality within CATIA V5 while introducing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for collaboration and data management.

CATIA Engineering Excellence enables you to:

  • Simulate real-world scenarios, including crash-test, impact analyses, fluid dynamics, and thermal analyses.
    Optimize design for weight, cost, and other parameters to improve overall product performance and reduce manufacturing costs.
  • Use advanced surface modeling tools to create complex shapes and surfaces with precision and accuracy.
  • Design organic shapes and surfaces for products that require a high degree of Aesthetic Appeal
  • Rapidly share design specifications within and throughout the enterprise.
  • Ensure compliance of 3D conceptual design with product specifications and information.
  • Manage product data more effectively using advanced data management tools.
  • Collaborate with other team members and stakeholders in real-time, regardless of location, using the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
  • Achieve the highest levels of engineering excellence by designing efficient, reliable, and safe products.
  • Reduce time to market.

Our CATIA Engineering Excellence Packages:

CAT3DX via PLM Express

The PLM Express edition of CATIA is used in these packages, but the base configuration is CAT3DX rather than CAT; this configuration includes entry-level licenses to the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

CATMEE – CATIA Mechanical Engineer Excellence and CATMSE – CATIA Mechanical & Shape Engineer Excellence are the two CATIA Engineering Excellence Packages available.

The CATMEE Package

CATIA Mechanical Engineer Excellence is a collection of advanced tools. It includes features specifically designed to assist CATIA users in the mechanical engineering field in achieving the highest level of engineering excellence, such as performing advanced 3D design of parts and assemblies in the context of full-scale digital mock-ups and generation of production drawings. It also includes capabilities for sheet metal design, workbenches for creating jigs and tools, and the ability to generate 3D functional tolerancing and annotation. DMU review capabilities such as kinematics and space analysis are also included for design reviews and analyses. CATMEE is made up of the following CATIA configurations:

  • MCE – Mechanical Product Creation
  • FPE – Fabricated Product Creation
  • JTE – Jigs and Tooling Creation
  • FTX – 3D Master
  • TRE – Technological Specifications Review
  • PRX – Animated Product Review

The CATMSE Package

The CATIA Mechanical & Shape Engineer Excellence package extends the capabilities of the CATMEE package. Nonetheless, it adds new capabilities for designing complex shapes and surfaces, such as Generative Shape Design, Freestyle Shape, and Developed Shapes.

The CATMSE package contains the same configurations as the CATMEE package but adds the following formats:

  • HSX – Mechanical Shape Optimization
  • FSX – Freestyle Shape Design

The CATIA Engineering Excellence Packages are a low-cost way to get advanced CATIA functionality, and the packages are significantly less expensive than purchasing the individual products or configurations separately.

Dassault Systèmes has also made it simple to upgrade to these new packages. For example, if you currently have an MD1 or MD2 – CATIA V5 Mechanical Design configuration, you can upgrade to the CATMEE – CATIA Mechanical Engineer Excellence package or you can upgrade to the CATMSE – CATIA Mechanical & Shape Engineer Excellence package if you have an HD2 – Hybrid Design 2 configuration.

In Summary

Our CATIA Engineering Excellence packages are an essential upgrade for CATIA V5 users looking to achieve the highest level of engineering excellence. The packages provide engineers with everything they need to design, simulate, and analyze complex products with precision and accuracy with advanced simulation capabilities, design optimization tools, and advanced surface modeling capabilities.
