The Structural Generative Engineer role drives innovation by exploring and evaluating many design alternatives across the complete range of structural scenarios to make better decisions and find optimal solutions efficiently.

Design Exploration can be used throughout the design process by utilizing different studies from topology optimization early in conceptual design or shape optimization for further refinement as the design matures.  Parametric studies can be used throughout the design process to assess hundreds of design alternatives.

Generative design provides an end-to-end solution integrating design and simulation to efficiently drive design through simulation without any data translation across design and simulation disciplines.  The result is a seamless workflow and efficient collaboration across teams.

3DEXPERIENCE Learning and Support

3DEXPERIENCE Learning Resources

3DEXPERIENCE is powerful and transformative software, so learning to make the most of it isn’t trivial. Thankfully, Dassault Systèmes and CATI provide plenty of resources on the path to proficiency:

  • Official and custom-tailored classroom training
  • Online training courses on the Learning Space
  • CATI’s quick-response technical support
  • Extensive official documentation
  • Dassault Systèmes Knowledge Base of supplemental materials, technical articles, and support tickets
  • CATI simulation mentorship programs
  • CATI consultative methodology development


Computer Aided Technology (CATI) has been implementing solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform since 2012. No one has more experience when it comes to 3DEXPERIENCE Platform solutions, especially when it comes to implementing the platform with SOLIDWORKS or CATIA.

Watch this video to learn more about why companies choose to partner with CATI for 3DEXPERIENCE solutions and get started today.
