Product Creation

CATIA V5 Mechanical Product Creation (MCE)


Finding ways to reduce design-to-manufacturing cycles is a key priority for industrial companies. An accurate virtual definition of mechanical products is the answer but sometimes its construction is time-consuming and design changes are complicated. Companies require a solution that is highly productive and flexible, without compromising design accuracy.

CATIA – Mechanical Product Creation provides the most complete and robust solution, tailored for any company that wants to make the difference by developing rapidly high-quality mechanical products with the highest productivity in design changes.


  • High-quality design for all mechanical parts, resulting from strong partnerships with industry leaders from all industries
  • Reduce time to design by enabling true concurrent engineering on complex parts
  • Fast design changes by automatically adapting parts and products to new contexts
  • Functional modeling: focus on what you want to model and not how to model it


  • Hybrid design: fully associative mechanical shape design in the context of parts
  • Dress-up feature completeness solving complex fillets and drafts
  • A unique part structure with multi-body design and powerful body operations
  • Automated relational design with publications
  • Functional feature modeling approach: Order-independent feature creation resulting in history-free part construction
