- Total Modelling
Total modelling brings together elements of PowerSHAPE and ArtCAM in a unique, fully integrated combination of solid modelling, surface modelling, triangle modelling, reverse engineering and decoration techniques.
- Adding textures and decoration
- Adding styling features
Total modelling provides a fast method of
Total Modelling allows "What If" changes to be made interactively at any stage of the design process. Surfaces and solids may be morphed to new shapes. Complex 3D reliefs may be re-sized, moved, edited, or replaced with entirely new artwork. Together these Total Modelling techniques allow to expand your capabilities far beyond what is achievable with conventional CAD alone.
Embossing provides a quick and easy way of adding features and textures that would usually be too complex to model using traditional techniques. Complex 3D reliefs generated straight from 2D artwork or scanned images are 'wrapped' quickly and accurately onto 3D surfaces and solid models.
Morphing allows even finished designs to be modified quickly and simply. Shapes may be bent, twisted, and stretched interactively to achieve more artistic forms. For high accuracy applications, PowerSHAPE 'reference and control' morphing methods let you precisely manipulate complex models. If you need to change a design to make it more aesthetic, or to make it manufacturable, PowerSHAPE gives the morphing tools you need.
