Dassault Systemes announced today the availability of CATIA Natural Sketch, a 3D sketching solution that can help designers more quickly render their ideas in 3D.
According to the company, CATIA Natural Sketch eliminates workflow disruptions that can occur throughout the design process. A sketched 2D idea can turn out to be not feasible in 3D, and the process of constructing 3D models from an original 2D sketch is time consuming and prone to design intent interpretation errors. Sketching in 3D enables designers to better understand their design in 3D, avoid misinterpretations of 2D views, and better communicate their ideas to 3D modelers.
The solution also gives designers and design studio teams the ability to use 3D sketched curves to create a model with surface modeling or subdivision surface modeling tools within CATIA. By directly transforming a 2D sketch into a 3D digital product, inconsistencies between the design intent and reality can be avoided, resulting in improvements in design quality.
