CATFiber is an AFP programming solution for designers and manufacturing programmers. It is embedded in CATIA/SIMULIA/DELMIA solutions on V5 and 3DEXPERIENCE platforms, result of the close partnership between Dassault Systèmes and Coriolis. The new version, CATFiber V2, brings the integration to a level that allows customers to rethink their approach to composites design by taking automated manufacturing constraints into account at early stages of design.

CATFiber DFM (Design for Manufacturing) is an add-on to CATIA Composites (CPD). It allows designers and/or NC programmers to extend the composites design phase down to the AFP tows design. Remaining in the CATIA environment it also allows to check if an AFP head is compatible with the AFP the AFP design. DFM is fully machine vendor independent.

CATFiber MPS (Machine Programming & Simulation) is the natural extension to CATFiber DFM in order to program the machine mouvement to lay the fibers as designed. Limited, today, to Coriolis machines, the solution will be open, in future releases, to machines from other machine vendors upon customer request.
