Industrial Design (IDE)

Unified workflow solution for Styling and Concept Design

To optimize the delivery of high-demand products, style and design are essential elements that not only help to design great products, but also help you to boost sales, increase customer loyalty, strengthen your brand identity, and distinguish yourself from the competition.

CATIA Industrial Design is the ideal workflow solution for styling and design. It empowers you to perform design sketch integration, ultra-fast 3D ideation concept modeling with subdivision surfaces, high-end surfacing, high-end real-time visualization, and photo-realistic rendering with mental ray. Standard exports are managed through STEP and IGES formats; while STL files are used for rapid prototyping.
