This Tutorial contains videos for wireframe and surface design with examples.. Actually this is our internal Webinar click here for more videos. From the CATIA help documentation: “The Wireframe and Surface workbench allows existing 3D mechanical part design with wireframe and basic surface features. Visit catiatutorial – YouTube for more details/tutorials. There are a few workbenches in CATIA V5 that have wireframe and surface options. This class will focus on the Generative Shape Design workbench.

Flexible post-design 3D parameterization can be performed during the creation of a feature or after the design is completed, by adding 3D constraints to the features.

An assistant helps create and modify wireframe elements in a 2D environment.

CATIA V5 Wireframe & Surface Design

The Adaptive sweep function. It can reuse a surface geometry linked to an existing surface providing master model design methodologies.

It provides an extensive set of tools for creating and modifying mechanical surfaces used in the design of complex shapes or hybrid parts.

GSD has features that are used to join several surfaces together.


Comprehensive set of advanced associative shape design features Shape Structure Editor facilitates the capture of design intent and speeds up design changes Integrated with CATIA Part Design and CATIA FreeStyle products for hybrid part design Time-saving modifications management Flexible post-design 3D parameterization Reuses the same surface geometry in different parts allowing concurrent engineering.

For example, a a datum curve or skin even non-isotopological used in one feature can be replaced ; A set of features can be isolated as a single feature with no history to facilitate design comprehension and accelerate design changes. Shapes can be designed using the part and assembly context. GSD’s Shape Structure Editor facilitates the capture of design intent and accelerates design changes.

Ane surface design specification can be also displayed in various modes, such as wirerfame Windows Explorer tree style or CATIA V4 ‘V’ shaped tree style, displaying all dependencies between features.

GSD can reuse the same surface geometry in multiple instances, allowing concurrent engineering to take place. The FreeStyle capability is improved with the addition of wireframe function. Both standard and advanced combinations of elements use associative transformation, including symmetry, scaling, translation, affinity, extrapolation and fillet.

Product Key Customer Benefits. When design changes are required, the user can control the propagation of modifications.


Under-constrained designs are allowed and over-constrained designs can also be created. Help to design advanced shapes that are based on a combination of wireframe and extensive multiple surfaces. The Windows user interface reduces the learning curve for new users.

CATIA V5-6R2016 drives higher Design excellence

An other example of a smart modification system: This functionality allows to create some high level and complex mechanical surfaces. These include wireframe elements: Standard and advanced surface features include extrude, revolute, sweep, including segment and circleoffset including skin and fill.

GSD shape design features Several GSD features help for efficient management of design modifications. Its feature-based approach offers a productive and intuitive design environment to capture and reuse design methodologies and specifications. The feature editor can zoom and pan the surface design specification. It includes high-level features with full specification capture and reuse.
