The various menus and menu commands that are specific to Generative Shape Design are described below. Note that most of the edit commands available here are common facilities offered with the Infrastructure. The specific Generative Shape Design edit commands depend on the type of object being edited: Geometrical Set, Ordered Geometrical Set or other entity.

It includes high-level features with full specification capture and reuse. It provides an extensive set of tools for creating and modifying mechanical surfaces used in the design of complex shapes or hybrid parts. Its feature-based approach offers a productive and intuitive design environment to capture and reuse design methodologies and specifications. These include wireframe elements: point, line, angle, plane, curves, circle, bi-tangent, tri-tangent, through and trimmed , spline, parallel curves, corner on plane, connect 3D, spiral sphere, intersection and projection.
Standard and advanced surface features include extrude, revolute, sweep, including segment and circle , offset including skin and fill. Both standard and advanced combinations of elements use associative transformation, including symmetry, scaling, translation, affinity, extrapolation and fillet. An other example of a smart modification system : The Adaptive sweep function. This functionality allows to create some high level and complex mechanical surfaces.
Combining Surfaces GSD has features that are used to join several surfaces together. Shape Structure Editor GSD's Shape Structure Editor facilitates the capture of design intent and accelerates design changes. The feature editor can zoom and pan the surface design specification. The surface design specification can be also displayed in various modes, such as the Windows Explorer tree style or CATIA V4 'V' shaped tree style, displaying all dependencies between features.
Shapes can be designed using the part and assembly context. When design changes are required, the user can control the propagation of modifications. The FreeStyle capability is improved with the addition of wireframe function. Surface Geometry Reuse GSD can reuse the same surface geometry in multiple instances, allowing concurrent engineering to take place.
It can reuse a surface geometry linked to an existing surface providing master model design methodologies. Managing Changes Several GSD features help for efficient management of design modifications.
For example, a a datum curve or skin even non-isotopological used in one feature can be replaced ; A set of features can be isolated as a single feature with no history to facilitate design comprehension and accelerate design changes.
Flexible post-design 3D parameterization can be performed during the creation of a feature or after the design is completed, by adding 3D constraints to the features. Under-constrained designs are allowed and over-constrained designs can also be created. User Interface The Windows user interface reduces the learning curve for new users. An assistant helps create and modify wireframe elements in a 2D environment. Help to design advanced shapes that are based on a combination of wireframe and extensive multiple surfaces.
