    Surface modeling & Class-A surfacing

  • Enhanced Profile tool New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Control your final shape and multiple approaches to rotate or slide a profile to touch a curve or surface. Powerful enhancements in profile capability help you create profiled surfaces between two sets of surfaces.

  • 3D Surface Array tool New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Create an array of objects along any surface in multiple directions in 3D space. This improvement over the 2D array of objects capability supports better productivity.

  • Enhanced Align tool New

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Align now includes multiple improvements, including Center Original options. More power, control, and diagnostics are built in:

    • Continuity options that have been simplified to G0, G1, G2, and G3.
    • Improvements to the Project mode, including new Shrink to Fit and No Curve On Surface options for a projected align. 
    • Onscreen diagnostic feedback, offering rich understanding of design changes.
  • VRED NURBS surface analysis New

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    High-quality surface analysis uses native spline definitions for better accuracy. Evaluate data of the actual smooth NURBS surface for a deeper understanding of your surfaces. This is more accurate and succinct than traditional surface analysis tools that show the curvature of a surface based only on a mesh approximation.

  • Precision surface modeling

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Create production surfaces with speed and control with Alias software. Precision technical surfacing modeling tools help to make sure that surfaces maintain positional, tangent, or curvature continuity with surrounding surfaces—delivering Class-A surfacing that engineering teams need to create tooling.

  • Automated surface creation and editing

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Automate common design tasks to accelerate the design of precision surfaces. Alias software helps you accurately align surfaces and curves, precisely trim and form edges of new surfaces, and create fillets and accompanying flanges in a single operation. The task-based surface modeling tools integrate vector and model space controls to help improve productivity.

  • Multicurve profile input

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    The Profile tool helps you design multicurve input for the profile, which can then be swept along a single- or multiple-path curve. Define profile orientation relative to the coordinate system, curve, or surface normal, as well as the target curve or target surface. Standard parallel plane options are also available.

  • Surface trimming and screen management

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Trim, Divide, and Trim Convert tools support intersections and give you surface trimming control. Intuitive colored indicators in the Trim and Trim Convert tools help you distinguish between the "keep" and "discard" portions of a surface. Additional options for selecting interior faces within Trim Convert help you maintain an uninterrupted workflow.

  • Efficient multisurface fillet tool

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Streamlined selection improvements from Form Factor make the Surface Fillet and Symmetric Fillet tools faster.

  • Intelligent Form Factor capability

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    The tool defines the ratio of the length of the innermost CV arms to the length of the outer (tangent) arms of the hull in the V direction of the fillet.

  • Multiple profile set inputs

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Enable multiple profile sets as inputs to the tool. Each profile can have an individual position and orientation relative to the rail curve. Profiles can have different shapes, but must have a similar structure, such as segmentation between sharp bends or the number of spans.

  • Align tool and NURBS to Bezier

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Efficient Align tool, Transform CV, and NURBS to Bezier support.
