Creative Design new 3D Sketching Concept Modeling. The intuitiveness and quality of 3D Sketching within CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE has been enhanced, to allow you to freely express your creativity. These new features from CATIA natural sketch focus on improving the designer’s creative workflow. We improved the handling of image transparency so you can take full advantage of variable opacity information. You can now import a .png image with variable opacity directly from illustrator or Photoshop, and easily transform it by cutting, resizing and positioning it in the 3D space. You are then allowed to use your image as design support and directly translate your concepts and ideas in 3D. We also enhanced the general visual and sketching experience, especially when sketching on multi-support. Thanks to the fully adaptive trace with automatic smoothing, auto-matching between traces and automatic exploration of border, you don’t have to take care of the complicated geometry anymore. You can simply readjust your traces by increasing the number of points. CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE provides you with a new strip drawing feature for CATIA Imagine & Shape to draw a mesh on different supports, using a sketching paradigm. Combined with other features of CATIA Imagine & Shape, you are able to create a new variant very efficiently. Using a Wacom display and its pressure sensitive capabilities, the thickness of you sketches and traces is led by either the pressure or the acceleration of your gesture to produce a natural and subtle variation to your drawing and to be as close as possible to freehand drawing.
