EDG 4111 Advanced Surface Modeling
Prerequisites: EDG 1212
This course covers surface modeling in 3D CAD, combining surface modeling, solid modeling and creating master models. The student is introduced to complex solid modeling, free form surface modeling and surface analysis. Splines, curves and three-dimensional sketches are used in conjunction with surfacing techniques to create shapes common to the automotive or aircraft industry. The shapes are analyzed for surface continuity to optimize designs.
