Course Duration: 16 hours
Tuition: $1,500 USD
[accordion autoclose=false openfirst=true clicktoclose=true]
[accordion-item title=”Overview +” state=open]Learn to transform physical products as digital scan data into digitally correct complex Pro/E surface geometry. In this class you will learn how to manipulate point cloud imports scanned from clay or existing products using Restyle software from PTC. Participants will work with a choice of Pro/Concept, Rhino, Geomagic, Restyle & Alias Surface imports or of various point cloud data. Fast and powerful, Pro/Engineer Reverse Engineering software enables productive use of existing intellectual property.[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title=”Prerequisite +” state=closed]This workshop is only for designers or engineers looking to utilize point cloud data for reverse engineering. Prior import experience with surfacing is necessary, as this is an advanced class dealing with surface connections such as tangency and curvature. We suggest the Design Engine One Week Long Product Surfacing Workshop as a prerequisite to this class. The next class after this Restyle class is the Advanced Import Class that utilizes import geometry for creating parametric Pro/Engineer geometry.
[accordion-item title=”Topics +” state=closed]
- Review basic import functions.
- Go over in great detail redefining functions for import geometry.
- Create and modify curves including curves on faceted data.
- Create, edit, and manipulate freeform polynomial surfaces, including high degree B-Spline and bezier surfaces using the faceted data and curves.
- Curve connections.
- Fit freeform surfaces to faceted data.
