What is Automotive Design Software?

Automotive design software is engineering design software with capabilities that are targeted toward automobile design and manufacturing.

Automotive design software can be divided into two categories: industrial design software, and engineering design & simulation software.

Industrial design software typically includes features that aid in the design of car exterior and interior elements, as well as cushioning and surface textures. Engineering design and simulation software offer capabilities such as lightweighting, part consolidation, and structural optimization.
