SOLIDWORKS is a modeling CAD and CAE program by Dassault Systemes which runs on Windows. It is built on Parasolid kernel. SOLIDWORKS user base covers a very wide range of manufacturing market segments, such as aerospace, transportation, electronics, machinery, medical, etc.
SOLIDWORKS users are capable of drawing 2D and 3D sketches, creating models and assemblies, adding notes, dimensions and tolerances.
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
