More Than 30 Years of Innovation for Class-A and Design

ICEM Surf is the industry leading Curve and Surface explicit geometry modeling tool for defining, analyzing and performing high end visualization of complex free-form shape CAD surface models to the highest quality. Used in product design processes throughout automotive, aerospace, consumer goods  and press-tool design industries, providing solutions for direct surface modeling, refinement, reconstruction and scan modelling. Advanced tools such as Global modelling and industry defined analysis tools enable designers to detect subtle surface problems and check for compliances with regulations, whilst simultaneously performing high precision surfacing and experiencing real-time 3D visualization.

Key Benefits

  • Use the Industry Standard tool for Class-A surface modeling. For more than 30 years, ICEM Surf is seen as the best-in-class software for advanced surface modeling and Class A surfaces in many industries.
  • Reach a high-performance level for Curve and Surface modeling. ICEM Surf brings a wide range of advanced surfacing tools to design and manipulate all the shapes, curves and surfaces of your models with accurate and high-precise results.
  • Achieve high-quality Class A surfaces. ICEM Surf offers real-time visualization, surface analysis and quality control capabilities to meet the highest level of quality for your Class A surfaces. Tutorials and our user community will help you to take your designs to the next level.
  • Take advantage of an integrated design workflow. ICEM Surf lets you combine with other CAD systems such as CATIA, 3DEXPERIENCE solutions or DELTAGEN, and collaborate with other people to work together in a unified, integrated design workflow.


ICEM Surf Direct Interfaces to communicate with other systems:

  • CATIA & 3DEXPERIENCE. Used as the default and native database of ICEM Surf, the ICEMDB file format, used for the daily part definition and data storage of a designer's work, supporting seamless data exchange between both CATIA or 3DEXPERIENCE platform solutions.
  • 3DEXCITE DELTAGEN*. For those demanding more advanced visualization and realism, included within our ICEM Surf Realtime Rendering add-on module and the DELTAGEN DII module is the capability to directly integrate with Dassault Systemes 3DEXCITE DELTAGEN world’s leading high-performance real-time visualization software.
  • Siemens NX*. This interface enables direct data exchange between ICEM Surf and Siemens NX.
  • ICEM Surf PLM-Link*. An open and flexible toolkit designed to integrate ICEM Surf into a variety of PLM systems currently available in the marketplace.
