Use reverse engineering features to repair a surface

By | November 4th, 2016|CATIA, Design, Design, Engineering, Experience, Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, Reverse Engineering, Tips&Tricks, Videos|

Today, many boat’ hulls that are designed from different CAD software contain connectivity errors, such as holes, gaps, overlaps, bumps, patch singularities, tangency defect, etc. These problems disallow the “offsetability” of the hull’s surface. This article will show you how it is possible to use reverse engineering tool to transform a tesselated surface into a proper surface. It is also suitable for STL and Scan model. […]

Transform a Scan into a Surface with CATIA 3DExperience

By | October 27th, 2016|CATIA, Design, Engineering, Experience, Tips&Tricks, Videos|

One of our customer runs CFD Analysis on Boats. The software is using provides STL outputs. A STL model is a lightweight representation that only contains triangles. It is mainly used for 3D printing and also by some 3Dviewer. Our customer contacted us because he needed to transform his scan into a surface. This article will explain you how we can transform a scan into a surface using automatic feature in CATIA. […]

Engineering error could really impact the schedule of your project and its cost!

By | September 26th, 2014|CATIA, Collaboration, Engineering, Mechanical Engineering|

  Here is an example: http://www.tu.no/industri/2014/09/22/verftet-bommet—na-ma-fergene-slankes-med-2.500-tonn This mistake could have been discovered earlier during the development phase if dedicated tools would have been used to monitor compliancy to requirements and to do cross discipline design reviews. And this is what is delivered with the 3DEXPERIENCE solution for Marine and Offshore. […]
