Local and Global deformation

CATIA - Generative Shape Optimizer 2 offers several options for creating local, or global, deformations on a surface:

  • BUMP: Relative to a specific point, create a surface deformation in the form of a bulge or hollow.
  • Wrap Curves: Create a surface deformation based on an initial and final status.
  • Wrap Surfaces: same logic as Wrap Curves above.
  • Shape Morphing: allows to deform an existing shape through defined constraints within Generative Design
