Materials information for CATIA

Direct access to validated materials property data from within CATIA.

Deploy accurate, up-to-date, approved materials information to engineers and designers across the company, for use within their CATIA workflows

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for CATIA

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway™ for CATIA enables users of the CATIA v5 software from Dassault Systèmes to directly access and use validated materials property data from a GRANTA MI database, while working in their familiar CAD environment.

MI:Materials Gateway provides tools to access and browse the corporate materials database (and Granta-supplied reference data on materials properties), to choose applicable materials, and to assign those materials to parts within the CATIA model.

Designers can ensure that parts have the correct density for mass property calculations, can assign designations and other notes to get stored in the CAD model and automatically printed on drawings, and can generate reports summarizing their materials assignments. Analysts can select and assign fully-traceable CAE materials models for use in simulation. All of these tasks can be performed quickly, interactively, and with no risk of error due to data transfer.

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for CATIA. Search and browse your corporate materials database (and/or Granta-supplied reference information), assign your selected materials to your CATIA model, and explore the design implications.
