CATIA V5 Electrical 3D

CATIA V5 Electrical 3D Design and Documentation (EDE)


It is increasingly necessary to embed electrical components that require optimized cable connections in industries such as industrial equipment, high-tech, and consumer goods. Electrical designers need to integrate their modules and cables early in the process to avoid costly physical prototypes.

CATIA – Electrical 3D Design & Documentation provides a dedicated electro-mechanical end-to-end solution for designing and documenting electrical modules in all industries that design electric, electronic and electro-mechanic components. It reduces time and cost for creating electrical modules directly in the Digital Mock-Up, avoids interferences and create up-to-date manufacturing documentation.

It addresses also suppliers who design independent electrical modules that interface with a global electrical digital mockup, especially when OEM’s are equipped with CATIA V5. (End-to-end auto or aerospace large wire harness design is addressed with CATIA – Electrical Wire Harness Design and CATIA – Electrical Wire Harness Flattening)


  • Integrated process coverage to reduce cycle time from design to manufacturing
  • Automatic wire length calculation and definition
  • Quick electrical space reservation within the product, avoiding physical prototypes
  • Reduce errors by validating the wire harness & cable assemblies installation within the virtual product


  • Design of Connectors, supports catalog creation
  • Easy 3D design and placement of electrical components in the digital mock-up
  • Automatic harness flattening and 2D documentation generation for manufacturing
  • Automatic propagation of modification from design to documentation
  • XML-based integration between existing schematic systems and CATIA 3D electrical design
