Learn what tools are available in creating surfaces.
- [Instructor] Within the CATIA tool set,…we have various manners in which we can create surfaces.…CATIA's an extremely powerful tool…and it affords us all sorts of ways…surfaces can be generated.…I'm going to go under the Start pull down…and this is where we can see…all of our workbenches.…Here you can see Generative Shape Design,…Freestyle, Quick Surface Reconstruction.…These are here based off of the licenses that I have.…Generative Shape Design…which is what we're going to be talking about today…is a workbench for parametrically generating surfaces.…
This can create pretty much any shape that you want…and for most engineers…they're going to be using Generative Shape Design…and the reason behind that is because you can do…mechanical surfaces, you can do some styling…parametrically based as well…and it actually has some very powerful analysis tools…for surfaces which we will be talking about some.…When we go into Freestyle,…Freestyle is more of the NURBS modeling.…You'll see exteriors of cars,…interiors of automobiles, airplanes,…
