CATIA V5 Structure

CATIA V5 Structure and Steel Layout (SSE)

CATIA V5 Structure


Industries require a quick and accurate solution for the preliminary design of steel assemblies that integrates the routed systems, such as piping, tubing, HVAC ducts, and cable trays.

CATIA – Structure and Steel Work Design option is the ideal tool for quickly designing steel assemblies for the tooling, aerospace, shipbuilding, and plant design industries.


  • Rapidly design structures using catalogues of standard or custom sections
  • Creation of the preliminary layout of the required systems that will be later used in the detailed design phase
  • Optimize the routing for all disciplines in the conceptual design phase
  • Define the path and space requirements for routed systems such as piping, tubing, HVAC ducts or cable trays


  • Design and layout of structures and steel work
  • Enable to simply and quickly create linear, curved structures, and plates using standard or user-defined sections
  • Include catalogues of resolved Sections: generation of user customizable Bills of Materials
  • Integrate knowledge rules to check parts’ manufacturability
  • Distributed systems layout, i.e. raceway, hvac, piping, tubing, etc,.
  • Plant layout, layout of space allocation, space reservation, layout of equipment, etc,.
  • Natively integrated with other CATIA applications thereby enabling the completion of the structure’s design
  • Optimized user interface to easily create and modify structures thanks to the fully associative design in context capability
