CATIA - Quick Surface Reconstruction

Easily and quickly recover surfaces from digitised data that are imported using CATIA - Digitized Shape Editor 2 (DSE).

Product Overview
CATIA - Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 (QSR) easily and quickly recovers surfaces from digitized data that has been cleaned up and tessellated using the CATIA Digitized Shape Editor 2 (DSE) product. Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 offers several approaches to recover surfaces depending of the type of shape : free form fitting, mechanical shape Identification (plane, cylinder, sphere, cone) and primary surface extension. Thanks to QSR's tools which analyse curvature or iso-slope property, users can easily create polygon segmentation in pertinent surfaces area. Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 includes its own quality checking tools.

Product Highlights

  • Good quality of editable surface recovering
  • Fast surfaces reconstruction
  • Polygon segmentation in pertinent surfaces area
  • Recovering of large free forms area delimited by n sides boundaries
  • Editable mechanical shape identification and keeping
  • Quality checking tools

Product Key Customer Benefits

Good quality of editable surface recovering: Quick Surface Reconstruction 2 offers several approaches to recover surfaces depending of the shape's type:

  • For free form shapes by fitting on a domain delimited by an n-sides 3D curve and constraints on boundaries
  • For mechanical shapes by identifying and preserving editable features (plane, cylinder, sphere, cone)
  • Recovering virtual sharp edges by extending and trimming primary surfaces
  • Editing fillets along edges
  • For sweeping surfaces using a loft command

Fast surfaces reconstruction: A breakthrough technology to provide rapidly in only one click the 3D surface model of a digitized prototype, in order to maintain companies competitiveness

Polygon segmentation in pertinent surfaces area: Several tools allow polygon to be split the in pertinent surfacic domains. This capability allows users generate sections or characteristic lines useful in recovering surfaces with the appropriate method:

  • Extraction of sub-cloud area or characteristic domain boundaries by curvature or iso-slope analysis Interactive definition of characteristic lines by smoothing 3D curves on points picked on the cloud or polygon
  • Definition of sections

Automatic definition of clean contour from a set of curves including unwanted discontinuity discontinuities such as gap or tangency deviation 

Recovering of large free forms area delimited by n sides boundaries

Editable mechanical shape identification and keeping: Quality checking tool... Quick Surface Recovery's built-in quality checking tools provide immediate visual quality control through extensive and associative real-time surface diagnosis. These tools include: 

  • Deviation checking between surfaces or curves and underlying polygon
  • Connection Connect checker between surfaces allows to visualize eventual deviations during the joining of several surfaces in passage, tangency and curvature
