ICEM Surf – The Art of Surface Modelling
For more than 25 years, ICEM Surf has led the world as a software solution used for Class A-surface modelling, surface analysis and design visualization. Dassault Systemes vision is to continue build upon ICEM Surf’s acknowledged reputation in the surface modelling market place and address our customers total needs and expectations throughout the digital surface design development process.
Explicit surface modelling
Product design has always been a key determinant of market success. And software based surfacing and styling are the foundation of great product design. This philosophy has guided the evolution of ICEM Surf into a highly effective tool for surface modeling in today’s virtual product development process. ICEM Surf addresses the needs of surface designers in many industry sectors including automotive, aerospace and durable consumer goods. It also covers the whole process chain of modern surface product development, including visualization. This makes it suitable for even the most demanding surfacing requirements, such as those typical of vehicle manufacturing.
ICEM Surf is an explicit surface modeling software that complements your existing CAD environment. It’s designed to adapt to your product development workflow in order to meet new and constantly changing market requirements. It also delivers a sophisticated Class A process chain for design. ICEM Surf is used to particularly good effect in car body styling, but it also offers outstanding usability and surfacing results in any market where competitive advantage is defined by product design. Unlike many competitive products, it is suitable for use within any CAD environment, as well as being a complementary component of Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA product portfolio.
Performance and Quality
ICEM Surf gives your product development teams the creative freedom and precision to combine artistic style and engineering performance in their designs. The result? Attractive but fully functional designs – developed quickly but without compromising on quality. That quality – in terms of both the design and the data model generated – is the reason why major automotive companies and design studios put their faith in ICEM Surf. In fact, when it comes to car manufacturing and consumer goods design and surface modeling, most of the big names are on the ICEM Surf customer list.
Shape your own design process
Because every engineer and every designer has his or her own personal way of working, ICEM Surf offers complete design freedom. There are no drawings, surface modeling or workflow constraints to hinder you in designing your product the way you want it designed.
In addition, Dassault Systèmes has defined a long-term roadmap for the future development of ICEM Surf, so that it remains aligned to customer requirements as they evolve. This gives every ICEM Surf user the stability and investment protection they need to be competitive in their markets.
