DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AUTOCAD AND CATIA

ABOUT CATIA

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AUTOCAD AND CATIA , AUTOCAD AND CATIA COMPARE.

1Autocad is 2D design and drafting Software. Catia is three Dimensional Software.we can              design 3d Models

2AutoCAD is a drafting software , it is use making maps or layout of the model whereas catia        is used for making 3d model in 5th dimension and it used in mechanical auto parts like                gears , pistols and even we can make designs of cars .

3-  Catia is far more advanced than Autocad in 3D modelling & surfacing modules.More user           friendly & have advanced features/commands to work on 2d,3d models, surfaces.

4Autocad is very rarely used for 3d modelling as it difficult to make & edit 3d models. As it is        less developed in terms of 3d modelling & surfacing. In Autocad it is easy to work on 2d               drawings only.

5catia – It is used in Automotive industry,Aerospace industry for fixture design, product                 design. It is used to design 3d parts & detailing for the same. BUT Auto Cad – It is mostly               used in Civil/Architect,electrical field for making 2D-Layouts,2d structural                                         drawings,circuits drawings.

6AutoCAD it shows a clean nd clear layout of the model ,CATIA makes a design of model in a        3Dimensional view

7- AutoCAD is a drafting software .AutoCAD use in different field like in civil, architectural,            mechanical, electrical etc . but catia use by mechanical engineers and its on 3D but autocad        provide 2D as well as 3D design.

8- CAD is a software design tool used in construction and manufacturing to produce detailed         drawings.To do surface modelling for plate / sheet structure items ( from plastics to metals         to wood ……..) and do assembly simulations etc. This can be done in several otehr packages         like solid modelling / PROE etc but CATIA has distict features to use for sheet structures               hence it gives an edge to use it in body frames etc in Auto industry.

9Catia is more costly than Autocad as it is more advanced & having more features. It is also a        main difference between autocad and catia.

10For creating 2d drawing such as building drawings,electrical circuits,layouts their is no               need for advance software such as Catia, so in this case Autocad is used as it is                                   cheaper.But in case of fixutre design or product design Catia is used as it’s easy to design             & advacned features are required for design of fixture parts as well as surface design of                car body.
