Tips and Tricks for Surface Modeling

These questions come up all the time

  1. How do I improve my surface smoothness for machines / Eliminate Chatter on the blade (when using Machine Control)
  2. How do I better control the triangulation of my model
  3. How do Breakline Approximation Parameters work
  4. How do I check the smoothness of my model

In the video below we take a look at

  1. Why surface smoothness is affected by triangulation
  2. How to check / validate surface smoothness
  3. How to improve surface smoothness if it is not great
  4. How to use the Breakline Approximation Parameters
  5. How to override the Breakline Approximation Parameters
  6. How to use Slope Indicators to improve surface slopes

We hope this is helpful
