A vehicle’s look is a major driver in the decision to purchase, and manufacturers are under pressure to bring impactful styles quickly to market. But consumers and regulators also want a vehicle that performs well in terms of handling, comfort and—especially for electric vehicles—range. Designers are under pressure to innovate but also to get it right the first time.
CATIA Design applications provide best in class tools to bring automotive stylists ideas to life. Since these tools are on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, connecting to SIMULIA simulation technology is a seamless way to incorporate Modeling and Simulation (MODSIM) and provide quick performance feedback to designers to deliver the best combination of performance & aesthetics.
