Thats starting to look a lot like the computer animation software used for movie making! Pretty cool.

I have this software on my work computer. Spent about 80 hours in class learning how to use it. (to get to the beginner stage)

I was going to do the "BUG" on it, but then I got "THE MEMO". No Catia files can leave the company! So much for that idea.

It's great software, but **** expensive!!

Cool stuff for sure. I got to play with this before the initial release. Dassault first wanted to call it "Imagineering" but I understand they figured Disney might have something to say about that.http://metalmeet.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif

Of course what they don't tell you is that some of these niche products can cost $20K per seat!

There is a cheap version of the same technology available that Dassualt calls Cosmic Blobs. If I remember correctly, you could find it on there website and buy it for about $30. I guess the marketing people are trying to get kids hooked on CAD. http://www.cosmicblobs.com (http://www.cosmicblobs.com/)

Hi John,

Thanks for the link to Cosmic blobs!!!! What a great way to introduce kids and the CAD reluctant to the power of solid modeling.

I can see a MetalMeet contest in the future where everyone designs a shape in CosmicBlob and then they make the same shape in sheetmetal.:lol::lol::lol:

Lets see some motorcycle gas tanks designed with Cosmic Blob.:D

Everyone should check out the tutorial movies.

The make a fish video is a good place to start.

Here's a quick graphic in .bmp format I generated after downloading cosmicblobs.

This started as a simple cone shape and was pulled and poked using tools off the toolbars surrounding the screen. It wasn't obvious what some of the tools do until I tried.

As near as I can tell the program isn't able to output in any CAD formats. The company's website mentions something about an unreleased version that'll output in STL format.
