New Skin Tool

New Skin Tool

The new Skin Tool provides advanced features for creating a skin surface with complete control over the resultant surface. In addition to the standard NURBS, Bezier, and explicit control options, Proportional Crown raises the midpoint of the surface, providing exceptional flexibility for concept or technical surfacing.

New Profile Tool

New Profile Tool

The new Profile command allows 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 target curve or target surface. Standard parallel plane options are also available.

Surface Trimming

Surface Trimming and Screen Management Enhancements

Trim, Divide, and Trim Convert

New options within the Trim and Trim Convert tools support intersections. Intuitive colored indicators help you distinguish between the keep and discard portions of a surface. Additional options for selecting interior faces within the Trim Convert tool help you maintain an uninterrupted workflow.

Collapse and Expand Windows

New screen management options give you complete control over maximizing screen real estate. The ability to automatically open by proximity or by manual selection means that core commands remain minimized until you need them. Grouping enables you to create unique window combinations that are specific to your workflow.

Multi Surface

Multi Surface Draft and Align Enhancements

Multi Surface Draft Enhancements

Now the Multi Surface Draft tool offers you the capability of adjusting angle and length manipulators at the same time. The ability to have variable angles and lengths in combination with explicit control over the surface U & V construction enables you to create complex geometry within one command.

Align Command Improvements

Improvements to the Align command enable users to toggle between adjacent ends of a surface while applying the Align. New Vector options using construction planes provide additional flexibility to the overall workflow. Defined settings, such as blending and continuity, are now remembered, eliminating the need to input repetitive options or values.

Precision Surface Modeling

Precision Surface Modeling

Create production surfaces with speed and control with Autodesk Alias software. Precision technical surfacing 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.

· Refine your surfaces to Class-A tolerances using the context-sensitive control vertices (CV) modification tool.

· Accurately create G2 fillets, even through trimmed surface sets, to address Class-A surfacing requirements.

· Precisely trim and form edges of new surfaces.

· Maintain explicit control over surfaces with single-span (Bezier) geometry or multi-span non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) geometry.

· Easily planarize hulls across multiple surfaces when creating technical surfacing for automotive design.
