+Advanced Pro/SURFACE Level 2A Workshop 'air forms'
Course Duration: 16 Hours
Tuition: $1200.00 US
Overview: Discuss different surfacing
styles and techniques using air forms as examples. Work with curve from
points of . Learn to create and modify conics, splines, & curves with
respect to air forms. Learn to use critical math surfaces with confidence
in this workshop.
Prerequisite: Design Engine Level 1 Surface
- Learn to use mathmaticly critical curves and surfaces.
- Learn to use conics and discuss strength of using conics over splines.
- Review Manipulate a curve through points using nurbs modeling techniques
- Lean to use trajpar Variable to dirve critical math using air form
- Create Transition areas. That geometry that joins wings to fuselage
that are not as math critical.
- Utilize new skill sets to smooth out solid material from problem areas
and to force rounds in transition areas..
- Building more robust curves and surfaces.
- Learn a workflow to use offset surfaces instead of the shell feature
- Eliminate isoparms (what PTC calls isolines) and discuss tangency
- Learn about striation or flow of surface.
- Manage concavity and discuss terminology with exampels that aircraft
designers utilzie to communicate form.
- Learn inherent issues and problems with 3 part boundaries
- Discuss modeling techniqe for creating Nasells and inlet areas for
- Learn to use critical math surfaces with confidence in this class.
- Learn to utilize copy geometry to make for clearance of critical internal
features. Utilize a workflow for managing clearace issues when desinging
- Learn to use the NACA aerofoils generator for later import into Pro/ENGINEER
for wing developments.
