Create, modify and re-use engineering design data from virtually any source.
Control and manage the data created by large assembly designs.
Model combining free-form and parametric workflows.
Manufacture complex sheet metal products, including flat-pattern generation, complex flanges and roll-formed parts.
Use rules-based design to capture and embed engineering and product knowledge directly into virtual models.
Includes more than 1 million components.
Automate the process of creating and analysing welded frame designs digitally.
Re-use industrial design data and optimise plastic during the design phase. Reduce exposure to costly tooling changes.
Streamline the design of routed systems, including complex tube, pipe, cable and harness runs.
Increase efficiency by re-using engineering data in the manufacturing process.
Electrical schematic symbol libraries dynamically generate rules-based electrical control circuits.
Visualisation, illustration and animation tools provide a realistic representation of your design at all times.
Realistic environments, lighting and materials help stakeholders and prospects experience your designs before they are manufactured.
Visualisation tools extend the design workflow with cinematic-quality 3D animation.
Take advantage of the latest advances in digital measuring abilities for capturing the as-built state of an existing facility.
Optimise material selection based on environmental impact and costs, including disposability and other environmental concerns.
Create a virtual representation to help validate the form, fit and function of the product before it's built.
Evaluate if a model has adequate draft for manufacturing.
Integrated motion simulation and stress analysis tools help you to predict how product designs will perform under real-world conditions.
Simulate construction schedules and logistics in 5D (3D + Time + Cost) to help analyse project activities and minimise cost and sequencing problems.
View, mark up, print and track changes to 2D and 3D designs with tools that make it easier to share drawings more efficiently.
Share lightweight versions of your 3D designs in the cloud to collect feedback from your team anywhere, on any device.
Streamline interoperability between engineering and design software and building information modelling (BIM) software.
SolidWorks, Catia V4, Catia V5, IDF, IGES, JT, NX, Parasolid, Pro/ENGINEER, Rhino, SAT, STEP, STL.
