Complex surface modelling and problem solving
When you look at any motor vehicle body, you see an orchestra of surfaces that come together to give the vehicle its style and identity. The CAD surfaces we created are machined in the final tooling. You certainly don’t want to have any small defects as they’ll stand out once painted and would be expensive to correct in the tooling.
Producing a shape with no defects using surface models in 3D CAD is a complex and skilful process. Before passing the CAD to production, a draft and curvature analysis was performed. This ensured the aesthetic was a seamless representation of the concept visual, whilst preventing manufacturing difficulties such as the negative draft, overhangs and sink marks.
