Delcam will be demonstrating its next generation approach to CAD – Total Modelling – at the Solid Modelling Seminar and Exhibition to be held in Birmingham on 26th and 27th March. Total Modelling moves beyond conventional solid modelling to include surface modelling, triangle modelling, reverse engineering and decoration techniques.
This combination provides a more powerful and more versatile design methodology that gives designers the ability to create innovative products more easily and more quickly. Users can move freely between the different types of modelling and see more rapidly the effects on the overall design of any changes in a single element.
The range of potential applications of Total Modelling is extremely wide. It includes items like packaging, footwear, ceramics and toys, and any other product where complex decoration can add value. Logos, textures and other decorations will be able to be incorporated into product designs more readily to help reinforce branding of products, especially when adapting items for the latest film or television promotion. Similarly, modification of complex designs will become much easier and quicker, making it possible to create a greater selection of alternatives when presenting proposals for new designs.
Total modelling will also help to reduce many development cycles centred around the production of variants on existing designs. For example, with medical products, footwear or bespoke sports equipment, there is often a need to undertake small modifications to the same general design in order to meet the exact requirements of the patient or customer. Many of these customisations require a series of iterations before the final design is reached. Using Total Modelling will both simplify and speed up the development process, as well as helping to ensure that the client receives exactly the product he needs.
