CATIA: Hotkeys

CATIA (Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application) is a CAD software that was developed for solving the problems of computer aided design. It has been used in many fields like aeronautics, automotive and industrial engineering to create all sorts of three dimensional models.

What does CATIA do?

This software allows you to create designs for any type of industry from automotive engineering to aerospace design all within one program! It also has great compatibility allowing users access across various platforms like Windows, Linux or even MacOSX! This really opens up possibilities for more companies as they no longer have limitations when looking at using this CAD software because they are able to work simultaneously between different types of machines.

CATIA delivers the unique ability not only to model, but also design in context of a product’s real-life behavior. Systems architects and engineers can now define what they want their project to look like from start-to-finish on CATIA without having any experience with engineering or manufacturing techniques up front!

  • Catia can be installed and used on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X
  • It is compatible with the latest operating systems which were not supported in earlier versions.
  • This makes it very accessible to a wide range of people regardless of their computer’s hardware configuration.
