+ Week Long airform custom Pro/SURFACE
Course Duration: 40 Hours
Tuition: $2400.00 US
Overview: This workshop has been specifically designed to work
for those interested in gaining a high level of Pro/SURFACE usage all
in one week. We will take you up several notches past your current surfacing
skills. Usually there are less than two or three persons in this workshop
so instructor attention is high.
This class curriculum is flexible for those in the class.
INTRO to Pro/SURFACE Workshop and Pro/SURFACE
Level 2 and 3. Can cover any of the ISDX, or Alias Studio or Solidworks
surfacing training. Most commonly this class covers a brief overview of
level one (4 hrs or less) and our Level
2 surfacing plus our ISDX level
6 or or
level 7. This is one of our most popular workshops
Prerequisite: Some experience with Pro/SURFACE
helpful but not necessary.
ergonomics related to cocpit or interiros.
The basis for this week-long course is to share the knowledge of tools
within Pro/SURFACE for optimizing more parametric robust controls for
the later use with ISDX. Below are the ambitious goals of this course
to be discussed/created/learned:
1. Powerful freeform ISDX tools by leveraging more robust Pro/SURFACE
functions and curves. 2. Aggressive introduction to Pro/SURFACE and various
surfacing techniques. 3. Technique for building a plan of attack, eliminate
isoparms/isolines, and tangency issues. 4. Definitions of variable Sweep
surfacing techniques with examples. 5. Maintain draft using surface sweep
functions. 6. Order of surface feature creation and its significance.
7. Foam model evaluation process and several starting examples on initiating
the surface modeling process. (plan of attack) 8. Building surfaces from
graph features. 9. Alternate surface creation techniques from more robust
curves. 10. Introduction to 3d bounding box or Lattice structures. 11.
Advanced functions of Pro/SURFACE and its weaknesses and strengths compared
to other hi-end industry standard surfacing products. 12. Light reflections
with respect to subconscious and conscious understanding of the 3d form.
2. Comparisons of Pro/SURFACE to Alias modeling techniques and discuss
difference between each for approach. 13. Three part to four part boundary
'trickery' with more than four examples for getting out of snags. 14.
Very complex robust models utilizing 'lattice structures'. 15. Incorporation
of 'handles' for further control and understanding over surfaces that
look at those curves. 16. Curvature continuity (G2) and multiple plans
of attack by looking at existing products. 17. Standard modeling techniques
with respect to industry standards. 18. Ten tutorials that illustrate
technique through computer examples. 19. 'Plan of Attack' and approach
for capturing form from foam models or ID sketches. 20. Proving form and
go over techniques for proving form. 21. ideation techniques inside Pro/ENGINEER.
i.e. get to multiple 3d iterations within hours instead of days. 22. Participants
can/will create work based projects during class time.
Participants can take home web based and or PDF based tutorials to recreate
after the class.
This course is usually customized to focus on the student's learning
wishes and company projects. Day One and Day two focuses on Pro/SURFACE.
Day Three and Day Four focus is on ISDX. Day Five is dedicated to past
or current project problems, plans of attack, or issues. Bring example
work or problematic models on CD ROM for in context discussions for work
during and/or on the last day of class. We supplement this training with
Alias style techniques utilized in the automotive industry.
