CATIA – Freestyle Sketch Tracer 1 (FSK) allows the integration of stylists’ work (such as 2D painting) into a 3D format, as the basis for 3D virtual mock-up. This product provides an intuitive toolbox for helping the user to convert 2D data into 3D data: the user will first position and scale the image in 3D, then use Shape Design & Styling products to draw the geometry over the sketches.
- From sketch to free form model Improved productivity
- Allows 3D sketch positioning and trimming support with point translator
- Provides scale and stretch adjustment capability allowing the fitting between the sketch and the 3D model
- Allows a quick view orientation based on the point of view of the sketch
- Supports many image formats
- Is fully integrated with Version 5 products such as Shape Design, Drafting, Part & Assembly design products to address hybrid modeling requirements
- Provides an ease-to-use and highly productive user interface for intuitive and dynamic mouse-based surface manipulations
Product Key Customer Benefits
Improved productivity… CATIA – Freestyle Sketch Tracer 1 (FSK) improves users sketching productivity allowing them to define rapidly a set of sketch views by using simple copy-paste.
- Dynamic axis positioning
- Snap support
- Flip orientation
- Zoom and translation support
Scale and stretch adjustment allowing the fitting between the sketch and the 3D model 3D sketch
Sketch trimming support The user define the zone of the sketch that will be used to build the geometry.
Quick view orientations based on sketch point of view. The coincidence between the sketch and the geometry is respected whatever the zoom and the translation values even if we are in a perspective view
Fully integrated with Version 5 products such as Shape Design, Freestyle, Drafting, Part & Assembly design products to address hybrid modelling requirements:
- Design of hybrid parts involving combinations of mechanical features and free form shapes
