CATIA Mechanical & Shape Engineer Excellence (CATMSE) configuration contains the following modules:
+ FPE (Fabricated Product Creation)
+ MPE (Molded Product Creation)
+ JTE (Jig and Tooling Creation)
+ TRE (Technological Specifications Review)
+ FTX (3D Master)
+ PRX (Animated Product Review)
+ HCX (Mechanical Shape Optimization)
+ FSX (Freestyle Shape Design)
Compared with CATMEE configuration, CATMSE also contains the following modules MPE, HCX and FSX:
Molded Product Creation (MPE)
The process of designing and creating molded parts is often time-consuming and inflexible, which is incompatible with accelerating market trends for new design. Companies need to be equipped with state-of-the-art and highly productive technologies to maintain a competitive edge.
CATIA - Molded product creation delivers ultra-fast functional modeling for unmatched productivity and flexibility, to address the complete design-to-manufacturing preparation process of molded parts.
Mechanical Shape Optimization (HCX)
Companies need simple and ergonomic tools to rapidly morph shapes without altering their quality at any time during the design process.
CATIA - Mechanical Shape Optimization embeds unique breakthrough technologies enabling to perform quickly global morphing on complex shapes. It allows either to deform interactively shapes or to capture the realistic one based on real-world tests of the product in operation. This easy-to-use environment helps designers to achieve a real productivity gains to optimize the product or the tooling definition.
Freestyle Shape Design (FSX)
In traditional systems, the design organization is messy and makes design modifications very complicated. The lack of collaboration between designers is responsible for increasing iterations and product design time. Companies must acknowledge that aesthetically appealing products are not always manufacturable.
CATIA - Freestyle Shape Design is used to design details on styled shapes thanks to the powerful technology that makes it possible to transform conceptual shapes into high-end styled ones that are then ready for class-A or manufacturing processes.
