CATIA V5.18 improves quality of the final composite part through post-processing analysis

CATIA V5.18 extends the end-to-end composites process from design to simulation to manufacturing for automotive and aerospace industries. CATIA V5.18 delivers post-processing analysis on composite parts for an accurate product behavior evaluation. It embeds failure criteria specification to composites structure (Tsai-Hill and Tsai Wu criteria) to give a better assessment of composites parts. In addition, the composites analysis environment can receive all producibility information needed to ensure accurate manufacturing results.

Enables effective Electronics CAD and Mechanical CAD design collaboration by strengthening the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design process

A library of 3D components, defined in neutral data exchange format, from several construction methods, either designed in CATIA or imported through data exchange formats, makes it easy to map with several ECAD tool import/export references to the position of electrical components without the need to redesign in CATIA.

Integrates knowledge early in the design process for significant quality improvements

V5.18 enables Generative electrical design based on company rules captured in V5 knowledge - Generative Harness covering placement (Tube, Tape), Generative electrical parts connections (auto create electrical assemblies from catalog), and delivers more electrical design checks (part connection compatibility, wire route and manufacturability, splice location in harness, completion of V5 electrical model).

Reinforces end-to-end electrical process by integrating manufacturing constraints directly in the design

CATIA V5.18 enhances CATIA Electrical Harness Flattening for harness drawing production by delivering more accurate harness manufacturing documentation (Backshell representation), smoothing harness flattening process for device orientation and improving the harness drafting quality. The CATIA Electrical Harness offer reduces the design to manufacturing cycle time especially for Automotive and Aerospace CATIA V5 Electrical design customers. The flattening process becomes more robust and completes the layout process more efficiently.
