History

of Dassault Systèmes

Dassault Systèmes was established in 1981 through the spin-off of a small team of engineers from Dassault Aviation, which was developing 3D surfacing modeling software to design wind tunnel models and reduce cycle times for wind tunnel testing.

Dassault Systèmes entered into a distribution agreement with IBM the same year and started to sell its software under the CATIA brand. With the introduction of the Version 3 (“V3”) architecture in 1986, Dassault Systèmes laid the foundations of 3D modeling for product design.
