Mid Surface Mesher

Mid Surface Mesher is a tool aimed at providing CATIA V5 users specific capabilities for generating  and   meshing medial surfaces of thin structures starting with a solid part.

From solid to mid surface analysis in a few minutes :

  • Completely integrated in the environment of Catia V5


  1. No export/import features or topological degradation.

  2. Possibility to continue at any time with CATIA V5 interfaced features



  • Enables quick transformation of solid parts into medial surfaces parts


  1. Use of unique dedicated features

  2. Based on CATIA V5 robust features


  • Secures conformity of the simulation model with the digital mockup


  1. Automatic generation of shell analysis properties

  2. Automatic computation of shell thickness

Specific CATIA V5 CAD workbench

With a smart combination of our new specific features and usual V5 ones, Mid Surface Mesher  workbench supplies a unique solution to modify solid parts, generate medial planes, and extract medial surfaces. With our experience-based options, users can choose easily between automatic or manual trimming, assembly and planar projection. Moreover laborious steps such as the thickness calculation is processed by default using our powerful algorithm. For multi thicknesses surfaces, you let Mid Surface Mesher compute these area per area using the split surface feature.

Speed-up coherent simulation

The medial surface parts quickly generated by Mid Surface Mesher keep all the capabilities of CATIA V5 meshing tools. All medial surfaces thicknesses are used to generate shell analysis properties which will be automatically applied to the mesh parts. Mid Surface Mesher can now refine the thickness calculation using the element per element method.
