Five best practices for mastering surface modeling

Best practice in surface modeling differs significantly from solid modeling. Surface modeling requires a significant amount of flexibility and inventiveness to ensure the shape is not only aesthetically pleasing but also meets functional requirements. How can you change your approach and improve your workflows to create better surface geometry in computer-aided design (CAD) software?

In this eBook, we’ll show you surfacing modeling best practices that can be put into practice for your projects.

What’s inside?

Inside, you’ll find five best practices for creating surface geometry with CAD software. We’ll review tips for improving the workflow of a general surfacing project, including how to do the following:

  • Define the various areas of a model
  • Decide the function of each area of a model
  • Determine which feature type to use for each functional area
  • Evaluate techniques for examining geometry

Solid Edge and Surfacing

Solid Edge handles any situation you will find in your surfacing projects with powerful and stable features. Solid Edge surfacing can be done in either ordered or synchronous mode, but complex interpolated shapes should be handled in ordered mode. One of the unique capabilities of Solid Edge is to use synchronous mode for sketches and ordered mode for actual features. This enables live editing; the surface changes as you drag even spline sketches.

Solid Edge retains all the power of synchronous mode when working with prismatic surfaces. You can also use synchronous tools to move or position solid or surface bodies within a model.
