For God's sake, i look everywhere i can, and didn't found a thing that for me is a simple question, and should be easy to find.
The online manual is annoying.
Please, i'm solidworks user trying to figure out if a move to catia worth it, but is also hard to consider a software that you can´t find information about it.
Other softwares i just easy found:

Solidworks : a 1000m box
Inventor : from 1 micron to a 100m box
even a Revit has a 20 miles box
catia: ?????????????????????

Thanks in advance to anyone that have this knowledge, and don't mind to share.

Wow, that's 1,000,000km, didn't know that could be that much. Also it let all other softwares behind, the maximum i found was solidworks 1km(revit with 30km, but it's more architectural than anything else). Now i know that catia can handle all my needs. thank you sal8251, i was looking for this info quite a lot. also is nice to know that always have someone to care about others needs, thank you again.
