This product teaches the user how to implement mechanical surfaces in the design process. After a review of the basics tools of Shape Design, the user follows an expert process embedding 7 steps from advanced wireframe creation to a solid part creation using Hybrid Design methodology. The student will acquire a precise and thorough method to design surfaces at the expert level; this includes quality analysis, repair methodology, fillet creation. User Companion for CATIA Hybrid Design complements the Surface course included in User Companion for CATIA Mechanical Design. It targets advanced Generative Surface Engineering.
The courses flow is consistent with the use of the workbench:
Step 1: advanced wireframe creation
Step 2: wireframe analysis and repair to ensure the appropriate wireframe quality
Step 3: overall description of common tools creation
Step 4: advanced surfaces creation based on the previously analyzed and repaired wireframe
Step 5: fillet creation with advanced blend tools creation
Step 6: surface analysis and repair to ensure the appropriate surface quality.
Step 7: solid part creation with a hybrid design methodology
