Mechanical & Shape Designer (MES)

A powerful set of applications built to create and manage sophisticated mechanical projects, including advanced surface design

The CATIA Mechanical & Shape Designer role allows users to create and complete advanced mechanical products and parts, from the conceptual to the detailed phases of design.

To that end, a fully comprehensive process coverage is available, including part design, advanced surface design with analysis tools, sheet metal parts, assembly creation, mechanism motion, 3D mock-up review and drawing generation. With complete integration within the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, it is possible to collaborate and share modifications among the team and to work concurrently on the same product.

To accelerate the design process, users also benefit from all CATIA modeler capabilities, including direct modeling technology, functional design, advanced feature-based approach with tolerant modeling capability, and knowledgeware design automation.
