Mathcad is computer software primarily intended for the verification, validation, documentation and re-use of engineering calculations. It is used by engineers and scientists in various disciplines – most often those of mechanical, chemical, electrical, and civil engineering.
Mathcad is part of a broader product development system developed by PTC, and often utilized for the many analytical touch points within the systems engineering processes. It integrates with PTC’s other solutions that aid product development, including Creo Elements/Pro, Windchill, and Creo Elements/View. Its live feature-level integration with Creo Elements/Pro enables Mathcad analytical models to be directly used in driving CAD geometry.
CATIA is a multi-platform software kit for CAD/CAM/CAE, PLM and 3D, created by the French company Dassault Systèmes.
Commonly referred to as a 3D PLM software suite, CATIA supports all stages of product development, including conceptualization, design, engineering and manufacturing. CATIA facilitates collaborative engineering across disciplines around its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including surfacing & shape design, electrical, fluid and electronic systems design, mechanical engineering and systems engineering. CATIA facilitates the design of electronic, electrical, and distributed systems such as fluid and HVAC systems, all the way to the production of documentation for manufacturing.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
In the 3rd and 4th parts of the series, we will talk about surface display modes in 3D CAD programs, starting with the shading mode.Read more
We continue to execute our mission to improve the import of massive 3D models. In 3.16 users will notice enhancements in both desktop and web visualization, as well as the extension of the support of the native file formats.Read more
