Overview

This in-depth guide helps make the creation of complex surface geometry more intuitive by leading the reader through practical examples of high curvature surface construction. It provides tips on how to deliver a manufacturable model that is modifiable for change and offers techniques for evaluating a design problem and determining the most appropriate technique(s) before modeling begins. Styling issues are outlined, such as highlight lines, lines of sight, and tangencies. This book is a valuable reference for casual or new users of Pro/SURFACE, as well as users looking to develop more effective surface modeling standards.
