In the article there was presented the comparison of the nominal data of a selected turbine blade which were calculated by using of both the measurement software Blade Pro — cooperating with, for example, coordinate measuring machines – and the computer aided design software CATIA. The comparison of the nominal data of the chosen workpiece was conducted in order to perform the analysis of the possibility of using the software CATIA in the case of the measurement application which is usually conducted by means of the coordinate measuring technique. The nominal data in the case of the two analyzed software packages concern the selected measurement characteristics of a turbine blade. The correct calculations of the nominal data have direct influence on the results of the real coordinate measurements of a turbine blade.
