Computer-Aided Design has opened a new frontier to the world of digital modeling. Rather than creating real-life models, designers can now make realistic models of anything conceivable on the computer. This program was designed to create CAD designs for airplanes. But has evolved to become one of the most important CAD design application in the aviation industry. It is also widely used for designs in the construction and automobile industries.
This program has evolved extensively since the release of the first version. It now features the latest innovation in the world of 3D computer-aided design. Such innovations include its ability to model any type of object to reflect real-life scenarios. It integrates easily with other modern tools and application. Although this application can be used for any type of design, its complexity makes it align better for enterprise application. It is one of the best tools in the world for 3D modeling.
It is part from architecture / cad category and is licensed as shareware for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit platform and can be used as a free trial until the trial period will end. The CATIA demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions compared with the full version.
