Pictured below is an Audi A5 Sportback built by one of my students who is now a Digital Sculptor for GM.

I am now putting some of my tutorials on YouTube, so whilst you’re there you may wish to check them out. There’s a full tutorial on how to create a Ball Corner to Class A Surfacing, Catia V5 spec.

For student’s who have the objective of finding a CAD job in the near future, I still teach One to One students and all of these students get Automotive Modeling or Design/Modeling jobs, so it’s a great investment to make.
Many of my students make it to the top and succeed in becoming pro. Alias Digital Modelers. The hourly rate is very high and there are vacancies in UK. France, Germany, USA, Brazil etc.
On my website I teach you how to build the models you need to get accepted at interview. Why not take a look?
This is a Completed Class A model
I am going to show you here, how to further improve any large surface by Pulling CVsDiagnostic Shader “Curvature Eval.”This is a student’s work and the surface is really good, so to find a fault to demonstrate with, I have had to turn the sensitivity of the tool way up high. Set the tool to Gaussian and 7.5This shows up the light green spot (see arrow) the flatness here is really minimal and could be left, but let’s fix it! Turn on the CV hull and using Move CV, Type XYZ with X ad Y axes constrained and “step size” = 0.005mm,pull the CVs over the flat area until the color matches that of the surrounding surface
A nice flow of even harmonic colorI can tell by looking at the color map, that this srface is now perfect
I needed to pull tangent row CVs on the adjacent surf to retain the colinnea relationship of the tangent CV rows on eithr side of the surf. boundary
Another Class A surf
to further improve. the arrow points to a tight bend in and narrowing of the Zebra, which tells me that there is a tiny peak running across the roof in YI prefer to set the Zebra repeat value to 0.35 to best see this type of deviation
With Curvature Eval on
the defect is very easy to see.When I hand modelled the defect out, I lost curvature at the boundary, so once again I needed to pull thr G1 CVs on both sides of the boundary to regain G2. I could also have added 2 extra rows of CVs near to where the arrow is pointing (Insert Tool) and that woul have protected the curvature cond. at the boundary
The Finished Job
The width of the Zebra plot is constant, indicative of a perfect Class A Surface. The surface deg. is: 5,1. 5,1.
To Learn Alias Automotive to Industry Entry level has been made easier.
For student’s who have the objective of finding a CAD job in the near future, I still teach One to One students and all of these students get Automotive Modeling or Design/Modeling jobs, so it’s a great investment to make. The hourly rate is very high and there are vacancies in UK. France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, USA, Brazil etc. I can only take a maximum of 5-7 students at any one time. I teach all levels right up to Post Graduates. I have never had a Private student fail to get an Alias Automotive job (Companies include Ferrari, GM, Lotus, Opel, Audi Seat etc. ). If you wish to apply for a place, please email me with all your details.

Fast Track Full Pro. “One to One” Course with weekly reviews and coaching 200-250 Euros (USD. 260-320 approx. Sept. 2012) per month. One to One Private tuition. You will receive specific geometry and meshes and modeling from me personally where required, to help you to complete your exteriors quickly to an Industry entry level standard. This means a bigger investment, but once in an Alias modeling job you will get back what you invested many times over and be able to work anywhere in the world
NB: Typically students pay 50% of the cost of the “Elite” course by monthly installments settling the balance over time, once they have an Alias Automotive contract.
