**a) Surface modeling overview**

Introduction of surfaces and shapes Nurbs/Bezier Curves and surfaces

**Introduction of Surfaces**

A surface is a two-dimensional, topological manifold. The most familiar examples are those that arise as the boundaries of solid objects in ordinary three-dimensional Euclidean space R3 — for example, Shapes like Sphere, cylinder and flat surfaces are coming together and form free form surface and those are complex quilts in pro/e language Surface modelling is different technique to create complex shapes which are not possible by solid modelling tools and sometimes we need to create different uneven shapes to fulfil design requirement and there are different kind of shapes are creating one surface quilt Reference:

**Introduction of Shapes**

Simple shapes can be described by basic geometry objects such as a Set of two or more points Line, Curve, Plane, Square, Circle, Cube or Sphere. Concave or Convex type Most shapes occurring in the physical world are complex and those are two types Non rigid and Rigid. Reference: 1. 2.

Surfaces and Shapes Example of a rim part global modification. The constraint is on the upper boundary (G0+G1+G2 fixed). The handle is the lower curve (translated). Rim part before deformation Rim part after deformation Tangent and Curvature continuity between two surfaces are playing important role into surface modeling to achieve require shapes Reference:

Nurbs and Bezier Nurbs: Non-uniform rational basis spline (NURBS) is a mathematical model commonly used in computer graphics for generating and representing curves and surfaces. It offers great flexibility and precision for handling both analytic (surfaces defined by common mathematical formulae) and modeled shapes Bezier: Bezier surfaces are a species of mathematical spline used in computer graphics, computer-aided design, and finite element modeling. Bezier surface is defined by a set of control points. Similar to interpolation in many respects, a key difference is that the surface does not, in general, pass through the central control points; rather, it is "stretched" toward them as though each were an attractive force. Reference:

**Difference between Nurbs and Bezier**

Nurbs Surface Complex area possible by single surface Less flexibility as patches are connected Control points are always connected directly to the curve/surface NURBS evolve into two parametric directions, called s and t or u and v. Bezier Surface Complex area possible by patch subsets More flexibility for individual patches Control points are not connected to each other Bezier evolve into only one parametric direction, usually called S or u Nurbs surface divided into subsets called Bezier Single Nurbs surface Reference:

**Surface and solid modeling**

Surfaces and solids are the underlying math that defines the geometry of the forms you create. There are three ways to define 3D geometry: solids, surfaces and wireframes. Wireframes don’t play much of a role in CAD, but primarily in digital content creation (DCC) and gaming. The easiest way to understand the difference between surface and solids modeling is to think of a water balloon; the water in the balloon would be solids modeling, while the latex skin would be surface modeling. Reference:

**Difference between surface and solid modeling**

Surface Modeling Solid modeling is defining an object with geometric mass Surface modeling is defining an object’s exterior with an infinitesimally thin skin Solids modeling programs usually create models by creating a base solid and adding or subtracting from it with subsequent features Skin is created by lofts, sweeps, and NURBS curves - i.e. sculptured surfaces with lots of curvature Features such as extrudes, extrude cuts, revolves, radii, chamfers, etc. Examples of solids modeling programs are Solidworks, CATIA, and ProEngineer The surfaces are either defined by poles or guide curves. A surface is considered a solid only when it is completely enclosed. It is used to make technical surfaces (e.g. air plane wing) or aesthetic surfaces (e.g. car’s hood). It was originally developed for machine design, and is used heavily for engineering with large part assemblies, digital testing and rapid prototyping It was developed for the aerospace and automotive industries in the late 70s. Rhinoceros 3D and Alias Studio Tools are examples of a surface modeling programs Reference:
