PTC CADDS 5 Interactive Surfacing Option

Provides comprehensive surfacing capabilities for creating both styling and production surfaces

This option combines and enhances the PTC CADDS Non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) surfacing capabilities with a dynamic, interactive surface design tool within the parametric modeling environment. The resulting surfaces are embedded in the model history. This powerful surfacing option enables quick and free design of complex surfaces and provides powerful interactive analysis features to validate the results.

Features & Benefits

  • Quickly create curve and surface models with an easy-to-use, graphical user interface which guides you through the design process and eliminates the need to deal with complex mathematical concepts
  • Leverage both free form and functional design approaches, giving you the power to create aesthetic and/or analytical designs
  • Get instant graphical and numerical feedback by using the interactive, dynamic display of shape analysis information
  • Fine-tune designs faster with more accurate smoothing, intersecting and offsetting using NURBS
