In this series of tutorials, you’ll learn the basics of xShape and how to start thinking about modeling from a freeform subdivision perspective. Check out how to use the robot manipulator, how to change and edit the mesh of a surface, and how to get started with different types of primitive shapes. You’ll also learn the basics of creasing—adding creased or sharp edges to your subdivision shape or surface—symmetry, and bridging faces. You’ll leave the basics section armed with all of this, plus selection tips, xShape keyboard shortcuts, and more.
What is xShape?
xShape is a next-generation subdivision (Sub-D) modeling tool that runs entirely in your browser. Found in the 3D Sculptor role on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, xShape takes a freeform approach to creating complex shapes and surfaces. You can design 100% in the cloud or integrate your xShape models with your SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD designs.
In this series of tutorials, you’ll learn next-level robot manipulation, subdivision mesh editing, and keyboard shortcuts. You’ll also learn how to align Sub-D geometry, and learn about soft selection and selection filters. You’ll get to dig into deleting and filling faces, mesh inspection, and the cage view.
In this series of tutorials, you will learn how to leverage multiple Sub-D shapes and surfaces, use ordered geometric sets (OGSs), and how to combine Sub-D design with parametric features. You’ll also learn about features like net surface primitive, reflect, flex, and arc-bend.
