CATIA is the World’s Leading Solution for Product Design and Experience. It is used by leading organizations to develop the products we see and use in our everyday lives.

CATIA provides a complete engineering and design toolset within a single working environment. This is revolutionising the way organisations conceive, develop and realise new products, delivering competitive edge through innovative customer experiences. Here at Majenta Solutions, we tailor CATIA to suit each customers requirements, filtering out any unneeded functionalities, we can also provide CATIA Training, Support, and Consultancy giving you everything you need, allowing you to Create Better and Demand More from your software investment.


CATIA delivers the unique ability not only to model any product, but to do so in the context of its real-life behaviour: design in the age of experience. Systems architects, engineers, designers and all contributors can define, imagine and shape the connected world. CATIA offers a full spectrum of design capabilities as well as collaboration between electrical, mechanical and systems designers to promote continuous innovation. This makes the software ideal for aerospace, automotive, industrial equipment, high tech and shipbuilding industries.

CATIA, powered by Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, delivers:

  • A Social design environment built on a single source of truth and accessed through powerful 3D dashboards that drive business intelligence, real-time concurrent design and collaboration across all stakeholders including mobile workers.
  • An Instinctive 3DEXPERIENCE, for both experienced and occasional users with world-class 3D modelling and simulation capabilities that optimise the effectiveness of every user.
  • An Inclusive product development platform that is easily integrated with existing processes & tools. This enables multiple disciplines to leverage powerful and integrated specialist applications across all phases of the product development process.

CATIA V5 is a modular platform, this allows customers to customise their CATIA experience by purchasing as much or as little functionality as they need for their own easy to use solution. At Majenta Solutions, we offer both tailored configurations by consultation as well as a selection of pre-configured bundles such as CATIA Engineering Excellence.

The starting configuration for CATIA V5 PLM Express is usually a CAT licence. This is the basic configuration which more capability can be added to. The functionality included within a CAT configuration license includes simple Assembly Design, Drafting, simple knowledge workbenches, simple Part Design and simple Wireframe and Surfacing. It also includes some SmarTeam licenses.

There is now a new CATIA V5 PLM Express starting configuration, this is the CAT3DX.  This contains the same CATIA V5 functionality as a CAT but also provides an entry level into Dassault Systèmes 3DExperience Platform for a CATIA V5 user.

CATIA Configurations can be created to provide solutions for Mechanical Design, Complex Surface Design, Sheet Metal Design, FEA Analysis and Composite Design.


CATIA V6 leverages the capacity of innovation for companies of all sizes in all industries by delivering breakthrough productivity design solutions powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. CATIA offers a multidisciplinary approach of design capabilities and enables efficient collaboration through the design community to encourage innovation across the extended enterprise from Design and Product Experience to Systems Architecture and Engineering.

CATIA V6 and CATIA V5 Compatibility

Many of our customers want to upgrade to Version 6, but need to continue to work collaboratively, internally or externally, with teams who still use V5. With V6R2012X we introduce an amazing enhanced compatibility between CATIA versions, which makes feature-level collaboration a reality for mixed teams. Moving to CATIA Version 6 has never been easier.

3D Models created in CATIA Version 6 can now be sent to V5, retaining their core features. These features can be accessed and modified directly in V5. A design can now evolve interactively, with engineers having the freedom to create and modify the part at the feature level, whether they use CATIA V5 or V6. All features in Part Design, Generative Surface Design, and Sketcher, related to 3D parametric geometry creation are preserved, as are assembly structures and positional matrices.

What is CATIA used for?

3D Design Modelling

Within competitive markets, it’s an ongoing battle to stay ahead of the competition. 3D design modelling teams are constantly being challenged to produce products that are functional, beautiful and maintain value. Providing innovative solutions that satisfy the demands of the business and its customers are now a firm part of the design process.

Today, design teams can harness the power of 3D and utilise the benefits of a virtual reality environment. Whether designers and engineers are creating fixtures and fittings or developing the latest in aerospace and defence technology, 3D design modelling is powering a brand new world of quality and innovation.

3D Design Modelling using CATIA

CATIA from Dassault Systèmes is the standard to many of the world’s leading design and engineering companies. Using CATIA for 3D design modelling ensures that the engineer has all the tools required at their fingertips. With a high quality interface, it has been used to create everything from simple component parts to some of the most complex products the world has ever seen.

If the requirement is to innovate, improve collaboration between suppliers and customers, reduce costs and provide teams with the right workbench for 3D design modelling, then CATIA from Dassault Systèmes is the right product.
