Abstract. The presented paper describes methodology of Generative Engineering Design of surface-based components in the automotive development and its general use. Tools of complex CAD systems suitable for this method are described. The presented paper describes possible loop of Generative Engineering Design methodology. Application of presented methodology is shown within the development of a class A surface of a sport vehicle front part. Generative Engineering Design methodology provides an automatic adaptation of detailed design, in case of styling modification. It means when designer's styling (CAS) is changed, any linked features such as components boundaries are recreated automatically.

Keywords. Generative Engineering Design, surface-based component, class A surface.
