    Surface modeling & Class-A surfacing

  • Improved Surface from Mesh tool New

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    The enhanced Surface from Mesh tool now lets you update original surface data with scanned data from a clay model, taking into account changes made to the clay.

  • Global refit New

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    The Mesh Refit feature seamlessly refits your design to its imported scan data. This simplifies the process of adapting your digital surface to the changed physical model.

  • Precision surface modeling

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Create Class-A surfaces with speed and control. Precision tools help ensure that surfaces maintain positional, tangent, or curvature continuity with surrounding surfaces.

    • Refine your surfaces to Class-A tolerances using the context-sensitive control vertices modification tool.
    • More accurately create G2 fillets, even through trimmed surface sets, to address Class-A surfacing requirements.
    • More precisely trim and form edges of new surfaces.
    • Maintain explicit control over surfaces with single-span (Bezier) geometry or multispan NURBS geometry.
    • Easily planarize hulls across multiple surfaces when you're creating technical surfacing for automotive design.
  • Automated surface creation and editing

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

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

  • Multicurve profile input

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Profile tools provide an advanced way to work with surfaces. For example, you can automatically create multiple surfaces in one operation. More complex operations let you move or rotate a profile to a target surface, or work with multisurface shapes.

  • Efficient Multisurface Fillet tool

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    The Multisurface 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 SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

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

  • Scan data workflows: fit surface to mesh

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Now you can 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

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

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

  • Scan data workflows: mesh selection techniques

    ALIAS SURFACE, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

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