Cast and Forged Part design (CFD)

Accelerate the detailed design of cast, molded and forged components

Cast, molded, and forged parts, as well as their associated tools, can be defined in record time with CATIA Cast and Forged Part design. Designers can concurrently create fully associative parting surfaces, die faces, cores, and cavities of even the most complex parts. Plus, the advanced, process-driven functionalities allow designers to define associative parting lines and surfaces.

This solution significantly reduces repetitive operations and makes it faster for users to learn. In addition, complex parts can be created faster than ever with productive tools such as Automatic Draft and Filleting.



  • Ensure design accuracy with respect to manufacturing requirements
  • Promote optimum productivity with automatic draft and filleting
  • Guarantee that the manufacturing part is consistent with design intent
  • Shorten the learning curve and reduce time spent on parting lines and surface definition
  • Avoid rework to obtain the right definition
  • Answer accurately and quickly to the request for quotation, and support decisions to design right the first time
  • Identify and define Slider Pulling Direction
  • Detail molding areas
