"Best friend of a design engineer"

Comments: In summary, Catia is the best software in CAD world for me. It allows user to design a part from basic level to upper advanced. That's why it's preferred in industry.

Pros: There a lot of things to emphasize. However to be more precise, I'm using for metal and plastic part design and it serves great. Generative sheet metal tool is very helpful and tools under this tab half the time while designing a metal part. In addition user stamping is a great way to design brackets amd evaluate producing process.

Cons: There are lots of tools I didn't feel so comfortable in the beginning about ease of use. But got used to it.

"CATIA a most for automotive design."

Comments: For a new user, this software can be frustrating at the beginning however once you understand the basics it is pretty easy. I've been using this software every day and I keep learning new options.

Pros: This software has everything an engineer could dream of.
Analysis and Design tool.

Cons: The software is hard to master. It has too many options which means you need to learn a lot of options.

"Catia Enovia V6 review"

Comments: I create large motor boats with large assemblies and i use Catia and NX on a daily basis. I have no problem managing the boat and the parts but when it comes to modelling in Catia i find incredibly tedious and very time consuming. Some days are very frustrating using this software as it is still very buggy. And when i contact helpdesk, they just reply 'oh yes, we know about that. This will be fixed in the next version!*

Pros: Managing large assemblies is particularly good with Enovia V6. I frequently open large assys containing up to 3-4000 parts (some of these individual parts are even 500MB each) and i have no problem with rotating the model with too much lag. The perspective view and general rendering of the parts is very good and quite impressive compared to other top CAD engineering packages.

Cons: Catia is not an easy package to learn. The UX is very over complicated and you really have to be shown by another user how to grasp the endless mouse clicking menus as they are not straight forward. After using Siemens NX for 10 years and then having to learn Catia was a nightmare. Catia takes far longer to model compared to other CAD packages. After 1 year with NX i didnt have a problem with creating anything, it was very reliable and I knew i could have a solution within a certain period of time. With Catia i never know how long something will take. It is far more unstable and it crashes very frequently.

"Excellent Software for people who do 3D designs"

Comments: The overall experience is excellent. I have been using catia since 2 years where it is easy to develop and convert designs from any format.

Pros: we can easily model 3D components. It is very easy to understand and design.

Cons: If we are doing larger assemblies that is more than 100+ components, then it will stuck.
