Aerospace Sheetmetal (ASH)

Aerospace industry designers gain momentum with a pre-defined set of sheetmetal features.

Aircraft programs face a number of challenges due to the vast amount of complex sheet metal parts they must produce. Detailed manufacturing information must be gathered early in the engineering definition stage to prevent waste and unnecessary errors, while managing the consistency between manufacturing representations can be problematic.

CATIA Aerospace Sheetmetal Design is specifically dedicated to the definition of aircraft sheetmetal parts. You can capture company knowledge, such as design and manufacturing constraints so you can work with precision and speed.

Based on sheetmetal design and manufacturing processes, it empowers designers and manufacturing engineers with a pre-defined set of features that facilitate the design of sheetmetal parts and their respective tooling.



  • Design complex hydro-pressed and break-formed aerospace parts quickly and efficiently
  • Ensure manufacturability with concurrent access to both 3D and flattened part geometry
  • Increase quality with administrator-defined environments
  • Empower concurrent engineering and assess manufacturability constraints
  • Draw with dedicated sheetmetal tools
  • Sustain communication between suppliers and contractors
