Stands for Computer-Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application, CATIA is the most powerful Knowledge-based and widely used CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software of its kind in the world. CATIA has been created by Dassault Systems of France and is marketed & technically supported worldwide by IBM.
USES OF CATIA
Have a Look around you. Everything and Anything you see had to be designed before manufacturing. The desk you are using, the chair you are sitting in, your daily use appliances, your car, your home, etc.
The list is almost endless. Nearly Everything is being designed on computers. CATIA plays a major role in the design process. The software is being used by the majority of automotive and aerospace industries for automobile and aircraft products and its auxiliaries and tooling design.
INDUSTRY USING CATIA
CATIA users are generally Aerospace, Appliances, Architecture, Automotive, Construction, Consumer Goods, Electronics, Medical, Furniture, Machinery, Mold and Die, and Shipbuilding industries. CATIA has played a major role in NASA’s design of the various Space equipment. Besides this CATIA has also been used as a Vital tool for designing “jet-fighter” aircraft, aircraft carriers, helicopters, tanks and various other forms of weaponry extensively used by the Defense Sector.
DURATION: 80 hrs.
