Product Overview

CATIA - Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 (QSR) easily and quickly recovers surfaces from digitized data that has been cleaned up and tessellated using the CATIA Digitized Shape Editor 2 (DSE) product. Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 offers several approaches to recover surfaces depending of the type of shape : free form fitting, mechanical shape Identification (plane, cylinder, sphere, cone) and primary surface extension. Thanks to QSR's tools which analyse curvature or iso-slope property, users can easily create polygon segmentation in pertinent surfaces area. Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 includes its own quality checking tools.

Product Highlights

  • Good quality of editable surface recovering
  • Fast surfaces reconstruction
  • Polygon segmentation in pertinent surfaces area
  • Recovering of large free forms area delimited by n sides boundaries
  • Editable mechanical shape identification and keeping
  • Quality checking tools

Product Key Customer Benefits

Good quality of editable surface recovering ... Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 offers several approaches to recover surfaces depending of the shape's type :

  • For free form shapes by fitting on a domain delimited by an n-sides 3D curve and constraints on boundaries
  • For mechanical shapes by identifying and preserving editable features (plane, cylinder, sphere, cone)
  • Recovering virtual sharp edges by extending and trimming primary surfaces
  • Editing fillets along edges
  • For sweeping surfaces using a loft command

Fast surfaces reconstruction ... A breakthrough technology to provide rapidly in only one click the 3D surface model of a digitized prototype, in order to maintain companies competitiveness

Polygon segmentation in pertinent surfaces area ... Several tools allow polygon to be split the in pertinent surfacic domains. This capability allows users generate sections or characteristic lines useful in recovering surfaces with the appropriate method :

  • Extraction of sub-cloud area or characteristic domain boundaries by curvature or iso-slope analysis Interactive definition of characteristic lines by smoothing 3D curves on points picked on the cloud or polygon
  • Definition of sections
Automatic definition of clean contour from a set of curves including unwanted discontinuity discontinuities such as gap or tangency deviation

Recovering of large free forms area delimited by n sides boundaries ...

Editable mechanical shape identification and keeping ...
Quality checking tools ... Quick Surface Recovery's built-in quality checking tools provide immediate visual quality control through extensive and associative real-time surface diagnosis. These tools include :

  • Deviation checking between surfaces or curves and underlying polygon
  • Connection Connect checker between surfaces allows to visualize eventual deviations during the joining of several surfaces in passage, tangency and curvature
