Virtual Design | CATIA Composites Engineering
Productive process oriented environment dedicated to the design of composite parts from
preliminary to engineering detailed design
Highlights
Challenges
- Grid based design for structures of large
The potential that composites offer is often spoiled by tedious
tasks. Composites manufacturing constraints cannot be taken
-
into account in the conceptual stage.
-
-
composite parts
Zones & transition zones modeling definition
Powerful plies generation from grid/zones &
taper or zones and solid slicing
Mighty ply modeling tools based on 3D
features
Solid/Top surface/Inner Mold Line
generation from zones and plies
Early manufacturing assessment
High fiber simulation tools
Complete inspection tools
Benefits
- Flexible preliminary design approaches to
get plies tailored to each type of intended
part
- Automation and quick design change with
zones modeling
- Capture specifications and analysis context
at preliminary design stage
- Respect company's standards
