Computer-Aided Design (CAD) capabilities are essential in modern engineering design and manufacturing processes. The CAD models allow to exchange a variety of design information and are required for numerical simulations. Moreover, interactive visualizations enable designers/engineers to easily display and manipulate complex structures. We offer highly specialized knowledge and experience in computer-aided design techniques, and our CAD capabilities are listed below:
- 2D/3D drawings
- Geometry reconstruction from standard CAD formats
- Geometric analysis
- Geometrical simplifications, repairs and modifications, e.g. simplifications necessary for numerical analysis
- Parametric design and modelling that allow to create very complex 3D models, e.g. modelling of free-form surfaces such as e.g. a turbofan intake
- Integrated design approaches
These advanced capabilities are developed based on well-known CAD systems available in the MSC Product Portfolio (for more information please see: www.mscsoftware.com) and on in-house parameterisation techniques which are using Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) method for geometry definition.
