This course is intended for Surface Designers / Mechanical designers Reverse Engineers. It is recommended that you have intermediate Catia V5 knowledge and 200 hours experience. Topics include: GSD; GSO; DL1; FSS; and much more.

Course Outline
  • CATIA Surface Design Expert (GSD)  - The objective of this course is to cover advanced tools found in the GSD workbench under the HD2 configuration and to better understand surfacing methodology issues.
  • Generative Shape Optimizer (GSO - Upon completion of the course, students will be able to optimize previously built surfaces, develop curves, create junctions, diabolos, and generate volumes and Boolean operations.
  • Developed Shapes (DL1) - The objectives of this course are to have the users familiar with develop wires and unfolded surfaces concepts and functionalities
  • FreeStyle Shaper, Optimizer & Profiler (FSS) - In this course, you will learn how to create style design surfaces, analyze their quality and modify them. You will discover two possible approaches: the surface based approach and the curve based approach.
  • FreeStyle Sketch Tracer (FSK) - In this course, you will learn to create Class A surfaces from stylist's drawings or pictures.
Who should take this course: Surface Designers / Mechanical designers Reverse Engineers
