    Product modeling

  • Stitches and seams New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Automate the creation of stitches and seams for surfaces that will be stitched together.

  • Surface chain select tool New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Select an entire chain of surfaces with just one pick.

    Surface modeling & Class-A surfacing

  • Scan data worflows: fit surface to mesh New

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Improvements to scan data workflows include the ability to easily place fit-surface patches on a mesh by picking 4 points on the mesh. Build a surface shaped to the mesh on those points.

  • Scan data workflows: surface from mesh New

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Create a surface on mesh by choosing the mesh region and then selecting 1 of 3 surface types. These mesh tools are optimal for establishing theoretical slabs.

  • Scan data workflows: mesh selection techniques New

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Alias now has several different tools for selecting mesh, including form-complying tools. This expanded toolset provides options based on the scan data.  

  • Multiblend tool New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS  CONCEPT, ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Fill an enclosed area with 3 or more surface inputs to make smooth transitions between surfaces.

    Design communication & product visualization

  • Interoperability with other tools New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Alias interoperability tools streamline operations with other products used in the design process, including cutters, scanners, printers, meshers, and engineering applications. 

  • Ability to switch shading assignments New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    When designers need to look at different color combinations, shader switches provide an easy way to make color combinations and easily switch between them. These switches move easily to VRED 3D visualization software for high-quality visualization and renderings.

  • Variant configuration sets New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Capture the state of your current view, so you can get back to it whenever you want to. Share your configurations to VRED  for visualization. 

    Fast concept modeling

  • Hybrid mesh modeler New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Using techniques similar to game modeling, Alias SpeedForm provides a hybrid of simple mesh and NURBS in a unique concept modeling environment. Accelerate concept development and streamline the downstream use of the model in other Alias products.

  • 2D sketch to 3D sketch New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Easily move from 2D sketch to 3D sketch. Calibrate the scene so that your 3D "sketch" is dimensionally accurate.

  • Work in Engineering context New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Using carry-over and engineering parts is easy in Alias SpeedForm. Translators help to ensure that your concept is built as intended.

  • Design with curves New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Use Alias SpeedForm to design with 3D curves by either bringing in the theoreticals from other Alias products or building the 3D curves internally.

  • Shape exploration New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Easily explore different forms from the sketch in Alias SpeedForm, as well as additional possible features from your design.

  • Quick design iteration New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Iterate on your initial concept with Alias SpeedForm tools and methods.

  • Design variants New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Easily build design variations, and then select various options for the design.

  • Design precision New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    In addition to flexibility for concept modelers, Alias SpeedForm provides precision tools for modelers and engineers.

  • Built-in material shaders New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Communicate your design concept through material selection. Alias SpeedForm provides many in-stock materials to choose from.

  • Continuous industrial design pipeline New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Easily export Alias SpeedForm concepts to other Alias products for production modeling. Simply export your wirefile and continue developing the production surfaces in your preferred Alias modeling product.

  • Real-time rendering capability New

    ALIAS SPEEDFORM, ALIAS CONCEPT, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Alias SpeedForm includes a real-time rendering tool. Get a more realistic view of your models before you export them to an Autodesk VRED product for 3D visualization.
