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.

It includes high-level features with full specification capture and reuse. It provides an extensive set of tools for creating cattia modifying mechanical surfaces used in the design of complex shapes or hybrid parts. Its feature-based approach offers a productive and intuitive design environment to capture and reuse design methodologies and specifications.

These include wireframe elements: Standard and advanced surface features include extrude, revolute, sweep, including segment and circleoffset including skin and fill.

Wireframe and Surface – CATIA

Both standard and advanced combinations of elements use associative transformation, including symmetry, scaling, translation, affinity, extrapolation and fillet. An other example of a smart modification system: The Adaptive sweep function.


This functionality allows to create some high level and complex mechanical surfaces. GSD has features that abd used to join several surfaces together. GSD’s Shape Structure Editor facilitates the capture of design intent and accelerates design changes.

The feature editor can zoom and pan the surface design specification. The surface design specification can be also displayed in various modes, such as the Windows Explorer tree style or CATIA V4 ‘V’ shaped tree style, displaying all dependencies between features.

Shapes can be designed using the part and assembly context. When design changes are required, the user can control the propagation of modifications.

dedign The FreeStyle capability is improved with the addition of wireframe function. GSD can reuse the same surface geometry in multiple instances, allowing concurrent engineering to take place.

Cztia can reuse a surface geometry linked to an existing surface providing master model design methodologies. Several GSD features help for efficient management of design modifications.

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.


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.

Under-constrained designs are allowed and over-constrained designs can also be created. The Windows user interface reduces the learning curve for new users. An assistant helps create and modify wireframe elements in a 2D environment.

Help to design advanced shapes that are based on a combination of wireframe and extensive multiple surfaces.
