do you use the term 'technical surfacing'???

do you use the term 'technical surfacing'???

I've heard the term 'technical surfacing' describe different things over the years and am struggling to define it appropriately. Maybe there is a better term for a trate of surfacing technician Im looking for? I heard one product manager on the west coast request a need for technical surfacing people/ training however he was interested in simply a surfacing expert. Comments?

It seams to me technical surfacing is apposed to form surfacing in that tooling engineers may need surfaces to create special cuts using surface to accomplish a specific task.

1 Surface offsets for creating progressive electrodes

2 surface sweeps to create draft when draft feature is not working or appropriate.

3 cuts up to surface


Maybe technical surfacing is they can do it all.

Can anyone comment?

PTC breaks surface design into two approaches. Technical surfacing is defined as parametric or constrained surface design. And the other approach is freeform or Interactive surface design (ISDX).
