Difference between SMD- GSMD


New member
Hi guys, my name is Rafet, from İstanbul-Turkey

Could anyone tell me what the difference between Generative Sheet metal design and Sheet metal desing workbenches ?

Rafet, I don't think there is anything in CATIA called "GSMD." All CATIA products and configurations have a 3 letter abbreviation - nothing has 4 letters. :confused:

This link to Dassault's page on sheetmetal describes all the different products and configurations:

Dassault Systemes : By Skills

hope this helps!

Excuse me :eek:
I wanted to say GSMD : Generative Sheet Metal Design.

You know the difference, between Generative Sheet metal desing and sheet metal design workbenches?
