Catia models show manufacturing information

Catia V5R17 models show tolerances and annotations in a familiar drawing layout in the 3D environment.

3D XML includes, for example, automation support, FEA results, and materials rendering. A Collaborative Enterprise Sourcing function combines engineering and sourcing into one desktop environment, letting users design for supply, parts reuse, and obsolescence management throughout the product life cycle. V5R17's ad-hoc review and dynamic-approval capabilities are said to let firms respond rapidly to global competition.
