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.

An other example of a smart modification system: Both standard and advanced combinations of elements use associative transformation, including symmetry, scaling, translation, affinity, extrapolation and fillet. Under-constrained designs are allowed and over-constrained designs can also be created.

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. The Windows user interface reduces the learning curve for new users. GSD can reuse the same surface geometry in multiple instances, allowing concurrent engineering to take place.


GSD has features catja are used to join several surfaces together. It can reuse a surface geometry linked to an existing surface providing master model design methodologies.

Its feature-based approach wirefram a productive and intuitive design environment to capture and reuse design methodologies and specifications. It provides wiretrame extensive set of tools for creating and modifying mechanical surfaces used in the design of complex shapes or hybrid parts. Shapes can be designed using the part and assembly context.

Surfacee shape design features The Adaptive sweep function. The feature editor can zoom and pan the surface design specification. It includes high-level features with full specification capture and reuse.

GSD’s Shape Structure Editor facilitates the capture of design intent and accelerates design changes. Help to design advanced shapes that are based on a combination of wireframe and extensive multiple surfaces. The FreeStyle capability is improved with the addition of wireframe function. 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.


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

When design changes are required, the user can control the propagation of 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 wrieframe no history to facilitate design comprehension and accelerate design changes.

CATIA V5 Wireframe & Surface Design

Product Key Customer Benefits. This functionality allows to create some high level and complex mechanical surfaces.

An assistant helps create and modify wireframe elements in a 2D environment. Several GSD features help for efficient management of design modifications. These include wireframe elements: 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.
