ADVANCED SURFACE MODELING - CATIA

To produce a reliable surface model at the first attempt, the modeling software has to be able to implement the most advanced mathematics for G0 to G3 quality surfaces, curves and forms. To ensure the designer and the engineer get the results they really need; the software has to do this dynamically and interactively. CATIA provides the most advanced surface modeling products: CATIA Icem and ICEM Surf.
