GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 2, 2013 — ZWSOFT, a leading supplier of CAD/CAM solutions for the AEC and MCAD industries, today released ZW3D 2013 SP. Available in 64-bit and 32-bit versions, ZW3D 2013 SP features greatly improved 3D Modeling and 2D Drafting as well as more than 200 other improvements, enabling designers to work seamlessly with ZW3D 2013 SP and other 3D CAD platforms.
Enhancing 3D Modeling with Optimized Functionalities
The ZW3D-based Wrap function supports the shaping of geometries to the contours of 3D modules. In ZW3D 2013 SP this functionality is made extremely user-friendly, providing designers with three different approaches to wrap all kinds of geometries, including curves, shapes and 2D designs etc., with great flexibility. A few clicks in ZW3D 2013 SP can integrate geometries perfectly into a 3D surface, saving significant time for designers. Furthermore, the reverse engineering process has been simplified greatly in ZW3D 2013 SP by Point Cloud which can impeccably convert millions of points to a 3D surface with ease.
Strengthening 2D Drafting with More Accurate Projection
One of the most anticipated highlights of ZW3D 2013 SP is the enhancement of 2D Drafting, providing a convenient approach to integrate 2D workflows in 3D CAD design to create innovative technical drawings. As projection accuracy and multi-CAD data communication have been considerably improved in ZW3D 2013 SP, the 2D Drafting functions more efficiently with well-displayed lines, increasing productivity and accelerating the drafting of a 3D model with higher precision.
Quick Glance at Key Features
- Two versions to support 32-bit and 64-bit operation systems
- Upgraded File Translator to ensure seamless data exchange
- Much-improved Modeling & Drafting to elevate design efficiency
“Being a user of ZW3D 2012 SP2, I find this new version of ZW3D 2013 SP Beta has taken a huge leap on data communication,” said Dave Bebbington, Chief Engineer of Sketch Evolution Ltd. “I have tried importing a Catia V5 file to the 64-bit ZW3D 2013 SP Beta. This works amazingly well with open edges reduced by 70%. ”
Plenty of other enhancements in ZW3D 2013 SP regarding CAD, CAM and Mold sections await designers to experience. Click here to get a free trial of ZW3D 2013 SP, or visit ZWSOFT Facebook to learn more about other ZWSOFT products.
