    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.

  • Precision surface modeling

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Create production surfaces with speed and control. 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

    Use tools built for multiple operations in one simple process. Examples include tools that combine surface layout and continuity in one operation that can be modified later. Other tools combine multisurface continuity to fillets that are then extended to provide draft flanges from a given draft angle.

     

  • Multicurve profile input

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Profile tools provide an advanced way to work with surfaces. For example, automate creation of multiple surfaces in one operation. More complex operations include the ability to move or rotate a profile to a target surface, or work with multisurface shapes.

  • Efficient multisurface fillet tool

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    The surface fillet tool is designed to create smooth fillets in a simple operation. Create single or variable fillets with continuity controls all the way to G3 continuity.

  • Intelligent Form Factor capability

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Control the form of the shape and make it consistent using Form tools that are included in many advanced surface creation tools. Easily match shapes between blends and fillets.
