Compensation Design for CATIA

In sheet metal process engineering, compensating for springback is probably the most challenging task. Compensation results, driven by accurate springback from AutoForm Forming, and generated using AutoForm-Compensator, need to be transformed into CAD quality machinable tool surfaces that satisfy all surface-quality requirements. Compensation Design using AutoForm-ProcessDesignerforCATIA offers creative, and practical methodologies to meet the twin demands of compensated surface quality and successful compensation outcomes. AutoForm-ProcessDesignerforCATIA’s compensation-focused toolkit enables users to execute high quality compensation efficiently, and in a fraction of the time that is typical with native CAD functionality.

In this training participants will gain actionable know-how enabling them to execute compensation for a variety of parts (Class A - Structural parts).

The following main topics will be covered in detail:

  • Compensation Editor
  • Vector field Compensation
  • Reference to Target Compensation
    • Reference Surface Definition
    • Target Surface Definition
  • Transformation
  • Various Analysis Functions


This one-day training is intended for users developing compensated surfaces using AutoForm-ProcessDesignerforCATIA. Operational knowledge of CATIA V5 and AutoForm-ProcessDesignerforCATIA are prerequisites for attending this training. Base understanding of AutoForm-QuickLinkforCATIA is beneficial.
