CAT + MEE (Mechanical Engineering Excellence)
CAT + MEE Mechanical Engineering Excellence Configuration: Featuring rich functionality that is quickly becoming the standard for Automotive and Aerospace suppliers.
  • Space Analysis [SPA] - Advanced Sectioning tools, ability to save the 3D Sections and automatically update the saved sections if the design changes, save Section cuts into usable geometry, show color of sectioned parts for better presentation. 2D/3D annotations, redlining and marking while reviewing the design to highlight concerns or important areas. Compare two parts or sub-assemblies and highlight the changes graphically with identifiable colors.
  • Fitting Simulation [FIT] and Kinematics [KIN] - Kinematics helps to simulate the mechanisms and/or kinematic pairs of interacting parts in an assembly. Fitting simulation helps to simulate the assembly / disassembly sequence of the parts and the movements of the parts with respect to the environment.
  • Functional Tolerancing & Annotation [FTA] – helps to create 3D basic or Semantic Dimensions & Tolerancing, different orthogonal & section views in 3D and captures on the parts and assemblies. This is
  • starting to become the standard for the automotive and aerospace industry.
  • Tooling Design [TG1] - TG1 helps to create smart parts and assemblies which can transfer pockets, drilling and tapping features automatically in the receiving parts, most commonly used for inserting fasteners. This provides tremendous fuCnctionality to avoid mismatching features (like pockets and holes) in mating components and the user do not have to worry about the validity of 3D design or drawings for proper fitment.
  • Sheetmetal Design [SMD] - Enables to design the bent, rolled or brake-formed components made to thin sheets. Automating bends, flanges and other standard sheetmetal features are created very easy using dedicated commands. The most important functionality is to the get the unfolded or developed blanks with a click of a button which is otherwise very tedious work.
