We present surfaces with prescribed normal Gaussmap. These surfaces are obtained as the envelope of a sphere congruencewhere the other envelope is contained in a plane. We introduce classes of surfaces that generalize linear Weingarten surfaces, where the coefficients are functions that depend on the support function and the distance function from a fixed point (in short, DSGW-surfaces). The linear Weingarten surfaces, Appell’s surfaces and Tzitzeica’s surfaces are all DSGW-surfaces. From them we obtain new classes of DSGWsurfaces applying inversions, dilatations and parallel surfaces. For a special class of DSGW-surfaces, which is invariant under dilatations and inversions, we obtain a Weierstrass type representation (in short, EDSG Wsurfaces). As applications we classify the EDSGW-surfaces of rotation and present a 2-parameter family of complete cyclic EDSGW-surfaces with an isolated singularity and foliated by non-parallel planes.

Keywords: Generalized Weingarten surfaces; prescribed normal Gauss map,Weierstrass type representation
