Pros: It's a very powerful CAD program that allows users to make complex models and designs very easily and quickly. Functionality is great for making complex shapes and assemblies.

Cons: Catia has a high learning curve and is not the most intuitive software package. Once basic functions are mastered operating CATIA is very easy and can be done efficiently.

Overall: Easy to model complex designs once software functions are mastered.

I use this software to 3D model and program for CNC machine. Overall, great G code processing!

Pros: I like the modeling ease of use. There are no complaints in regards to the feature on the modeling or drawing side of things. Very easy!

Cons: The 3D modeling is very intuitive, but it is easy to get lost in the G code settings. I fins that it is often very time consuming to get a CNC program to perform as desired.

Overall: Save time and don't write G code manually, use this software!

I use Catia to design aeronautic parts for customers as Airbus & other major companies

Pros: I really enjoy the very large choice of functionnalities offered by Catia regarding with other CAD softwares. In addition, the graphism is really fluid and pleasant. I understand why it is one of the most used softwares for 3D design.

Cons: It takes sometimes a long time for me to find the most appropriate functionnality among the large choice when I don't know yet it. Hopefully, the provided help is well documented. With experience, it is always easier.

Overall: It helped me and my colleagues to design very complex parts and the tools to manufacture them, for more than 10 years now.

A very powerful design tool.

Pros: It is very powerful and handles complex geometry effectively. Designing large assemblies is simple, and Catia handles complexity well.

Cons: The interface is a bit confusing with icons not always located where expected. Licensing should allow on-the-fly selection of licenses for special features.

Comments: CATIA V6 comes with full spectrum of tools for designing and analysis.While SolidWorks and ProE will do most everything you need, they don't do as well when you want to work in a large collabrative environment. If you want to design something with more then a hundred or so parts up to a commercial jet it starts to shine. Of course catia would be the first preference.
