The '''Surface''' workbench provides tools to create and modify surfaces. It has a very similar functionality as [[Part_Shapebuilder|Part Shape builder]] ''Face from edges'', but it is parametric and provides additional options. Its features are:
 
* Create surfaces from boundary edges
 
* Align the curvature from neighbor faces
 
* constrain surfaces to additional curves or vertexes.
 
* extend faces (need to find out how!)
 
* A mesh can be used as a template to create spline curves on its surface.

The [[Image:Workbench_Surface.svg|24px]] [[Surface_Workbench|Surface Workbench]] provides tools to create and modify simple [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-uniform_rational_B-spline NURBS surfaces]. These tools have a similar functionality to the {{Button|[[File:Part Builder.svg|16px]] [[Part_Builder|Part Builder]]}} tool when the {{MenuCommand|Face from edges}} option is used. However, unlike that tool, the tools of the Surface Workbench are parametric and provide additional options. In this respect, the tools in this workbench are similar to {{Button|[[File:PartDesign_AdditiveLoft.svg|16px]] [[PartDesign_AdditiveLoft|PartDesign AdditiveLoft]]}} and {{Button|[[File:PartDesign_AdditivePipe.svg|16px]] [[PartDesign_AdditivePipe|PartDesign AdditivePipe]]}}.

The aim of the surface workbench is to create faces with shapes, which are not available with the standard tools in the other workbenches. The Open Cascade CAD-kernel gives as example a rounded corner of a rectangular box with different radii at the edges. Another example is shown here. It is the form of a plastic toy, created with the surface workbench.

The surface workbench generates usually nurb surfaces. The uses does not need to know much about nurbs(correct?). It is sufficient to have a closed border for a face, in order to create the surface. Options are available to further modify its shape.
 
  
The Surface workbench integrates with other workbenches of FreeCAD.

The current state of FreeCAD (v0.17) does not allow to place the surfaces into a body of the PartDesign workbench. But the surfaces can be placed inside of a [[Std_Part|Part]] together with the body which holds all datum planes and sketches. The non parametric [[Part_Shapebuilder|Part Shape builder]] must still be used in order to create a  [[Glossary#Shell|shell]] and a regular [[Glossary#Solid|solid]] out of the set of surfaces.

* adding additional edges or wires as boundary to a surface, that would make up several faces. Add those edges only to '''Unbound Edges'''.
 
* Using of boundary edges, that fails do build a closed boundary at parametric changes of the document.

Introduction

The Workbench Surface.svg Surface Workbench provides tools to create and modify simple NURBS surfaces. These tools have a similar functionality to the Part Builder.svg Part Builder tool when the Face from edges option is used. However, unlike that tool, the tools of the Surface Workbench are parametric and provide additional options. In this respect, the tools in this workbench are similar to PartDesign AdditiveLoft.svg PartDesign AdditiveLoft and PartDesign AdditivePipe.svg PartDesign AdditivePipe.

Some of the features provided are:

  • Creation of surfaces from boundary edges.
  • Alignment of the curvature from neighboring faces.
  • Constraining of surfaces to additional curves and vertices.
  • Extension of faces.
  • A mesh can be used as a template to create spline curves on its surface.

Usage

The Surface Workbench intends to create faces with shapes, which is not possible to do with the standard tools in other workbenches.

Surface created with sketches placed in datum planes with the tools of the PartDesign Workbench

The Surface Workbench integrates with other workbenches of FreeCAD. The above example was created from Sketcher NewSketch.svg Sketches placed on PartDesign Plane.svg PartDesign Datum planes in the Workbench PartDesign.svg PartDesign Workbench. The design can be fully parametric if all datum planes and sketches are defined accordingly. In most cases it is sufficient to draw a closed sketch to define the boundary of a face, and then use different options to further modify its shape.

The generated surface cannot be placed inside a PartDesign Body.svg PartDesign Body. However, the generated surface can be contained inside a Std Part.svg Std Part together with the associated PartDesign Body.svg PartDesign Body that holds the datum planes and sketches. The non-parametric Part Builder.svg Part Builder tool can then be used in order to create a shell and finally a solid.

Tools

  • Surface Filling.svg Filling: fills a series of boundary curves with a surface.
  • Surface ExtendFace.svg Extend face: extrapolates the surface at the boundaries with its local U parameter and V parameter.
