The process of designing and creating molded parts is often time-consuming and inflexible, which is incompatible with accelerating market trends for new design. Companies need to be equipped with state-of-the-art and highly productive technologies to maintain a competitive edge.
Molded product creation delivers ultra fast functional modeling for unmatched productivity and flexibility, to address the complete design-to-manufacturing preparation process of molded parts.
Wide range of discipline oriented features that take into account manufacturability constraints: Extrude, Revolve, Cut, Thicken surface, Rib, Boss, Cutout, Rest, Pocket, Grill, Reinforcement, Shell, etc,.
Order-independent feature creation resulting in history-free part construction CATIA - Mechanical Product Creation brings a new level of flexibility and productivity to design by providing access to a collection of intuitive functional features. Whereas in most other CAD systems a complex modeling task would usually require the creation of several dedicated features, these industry-specific functional features enable to complete the modeling in a single operation. This all-in-one concept saves considerable time when elaborating on a complex form. In addition, the various design elements can be created in any order making it easier for users to capture their design intent and focus on what they want to model, not how to model it.
