CATIA's Composite Part Design (CPD) workbench has an industry-leading suite of tools for the design of laminated parts. While the CPD's manual ply definition and zone-based approach are the two most commonly used design methods, the latest and most efficient additions to the toolset are frequently overlooked.

This session will focus on the Grid-Based approach, which is the newest design methodology now implemented in the CPD workbench. The Grid-Based composite design is a breakthrough technology enabling the fastest and most efficient design of large and complex structures, such as fuselage barrels, wing panels and boat hulls, in context of their mating sub-structures.

Topics covered in this webcast:
  • Specifying ply materials
  • Defining grid panel and structural groups
  • Virtual stacking management
  • Ply generation from virtual stacking
  • Ply generation from solid slicing
  • Defining ramps and drop-offs
  • Solid and IML generation
  • Fiber deviation and ply draping analysis
  • Flat pattern generation and export
