Curvature: the relevant criterion for Class-A surface quality

Curvature: the relevant criterion for Class-A surface quality

An increasinq number of projects in in the automotive and aeronautical industry include Class-A surface quality as a competitive advantage. Quality control tends to be too subjective, however, as it is usually entrusted to human inspectors. Optical systems are showing qreat a promise with theis high resolution, but the relevance, geometrical correctness and correlation with […]

Sketch-based Computer-Aided Design Tool for Configuration Design of Automobile Instrument Panel

Sketch-based Computer-Aided Design Tool for Configuration Design of Automobile Instrument Panel

This paper presents two geometric operations–constrained curve beautification and polygonal mesh scissoring–for a sketch-based Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tool for the configuration design of automobile instrument panels. Using the proposed sketch- based CAD, industrial designers and mechanical engineers can work together closely to perform the early-stage configuration design efficiently by drawing candidate sub- panel boundaries on […]

Review: SketchBook Pro (iPad)

Review: SketchBook Pro (iPad)

When the Apple iPad was announced back in January, it seemed like a natural fit as a drawing tablet. While we knew that it may not have the fidelity of a Cintiq, we also knew that it wasn’t meant to be used the same way. Now that the tablet is out and the flood of […]

Advanced 3D-CAD Design Methods in Education and Research

Advanced 3D-CAD Design Methods in Education and Research

The integration of advanced virtual engineering methods into 3D-CAD based development processes leads to increased requirements, concerning the software packages as well as regarding the applied procedures and strategies. Modern IT- based engineering tools offer much more than the conventional development methodologies in component creation and digital mock-up processes. The trend definitely goes into the […]

About: Computer Aided Design

Ten years ago every product design studio, whether consultancy or in house would have been populated by technical draftspeople with drawing boards and Rotring pens. Today it is the realm of the CAD workstation and the specialist engineers and designers who operate them. About the author Paul Siodmok is Director of Integer Solutions and works […]
