Abaqus for CATIA takes the existing functionality of Abaqus Standard and integrates this within the CATIA environment. The result is advanced functionality that extends beyond the CATIA analysis tools, working on native CATIA data within the standard CATIA interface. Abaqus for CATIA offers thermal and basic non-linear structural analysis capabilities within the CATIA Environment.

Key Benefits of Abaqus for CATIA

A Scalable Solution

With this solution, your CATIA V5 models and your Abaqus models become one and the same, making this software a highly scalable solution.

Simulation for Design Engineers

Design engineers skilled in using CATIA V5 have access to a wide array of Abaqus simulation capabilities.

Access to CATIA V5 Models

Abaqus experts can readily access CATIA V5 models for their analysis work, making full use of associativity between geometry and the analysis model.

Accelerate Product Development

Abaqus for CATIA enables advanced simulation capabilities to be used routinely by design engineers to accelerate and improve product development.


To run Abaqus for CATIA V5 you must have licenses for a valid CATIA V5 product, for Abaqus, and for Abaqus for CATIA.

If you are using Abaqus for CATIA V5 with a license for CATIA – GENERATIVE PART STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS 2 (GPS), other CATIA V5 licenses are necessary to allow access to some functionality.

Additional Requirements

Abaqus/Standard or Abaqus/Explicit is required to obtain simulation results but can be installed on machines separate from the client machine.

Abaqus for CATIA V5 requires Microsoft Excel to create and display integrated X-Y plots of history data or energy variables.
