CAD Import and Functions
Geometry in AI*Environment

• AI*Environment has 2 primary means of obtaining geometry:


– CAD model import, including a design modeler in Workbench
– Geometry creation
• Imported solids are converted to surfaces
– A “Body” within AI*E is simply a closed set of surfaces.

• It is possible to create
complicated geometries,
but most users import
from CAD

This Jet engine model


with functioning thrust
reversers was built with
AI*Environments
geometry tools

CATIA V5 Based technology

Geometry Model in Catia V5

– Associative with CATIA-V5 model,


mesh responds to parametric change
in CATIA
– Created mesh can be used with all
Catia-V5 based applications
– Same tool for CFD and Structural
analysis
– CFD Gateway

Shrink Wrapping
The Demo Model

The Stats
3.7 million line Nastran File
1000+ parts
Estimated at 800000 CAD surfaces
Internal CAD also

If 1 surface uses 5k of RAM then ‘true CAD model’ = 4 Gigs to load the part!

• No Shadowing effects
• Final Shrink wrap can be used as
simplified geometry
• Try with the Hexa Core technology
