ZWSOFT has launched ZW3D 2019 Beta, which delivers enhancements and new functions that solve complex design challenges and facilitate detail works in engineering.
ZW3D 2019 optimizes algorithm so that it drives higher process speed on display, calculation and response, especially in complex solid modeling. There's increased design efficiency through faster and more stable history regeneration. The updated explicit feature and new quick rollback function can quicken design with ease.
Now, in ZW3D 2019, the mechanical structure of an assembly can be dissociated, making it possible for users to move individual components for verifying the motion of the whole assembly. It’s easier to verify the motion of the whole assembly to reduce errors, further reducing time to market via flexible sub-assembly updates.
ZW3D 2019 introduces the user-defined feature that manages groups of feature, associated dimensions and feature relation. It helps reduce repetitive operations and simplifies the design history. Also, now, the patterned or mirrored components with constraints is available to smooth assembly management. Users can keep the same performance in large and complex assembly.
Users can get a 3D BOM table based on a 3D model with multi-shapes or an assembly directly. In this table, the attributes of any shape or component can be edited, including standard attributes and customized attributes. The updated 2D draft features like Auto Dimension and Stack Balloons, not only get an efficiency boost, but also bring commonly used requirements to your fingertips.
Optimized workflow and extended functions covering wider operations, make mold parting easier. Additionally, the new mechanism provides clearer processing management and more stable regeneration.
ZW3D 2019 can customize all parameters for customization, set plate attributes to make full use of external mold plates. Plus, the simplified workflow of inserting Standard Parts offers more flexibility when designing parts.
ZW3D 2019 arms the improved Electrode Blank function that provides assembly and shape modes for creating the electrode. Reformed Electrode Drawing supports the customization of the view center, annotation style and drawing template.
Powernest is a fully automatic nesting solution while giving new design possibilities, which is integrated into ZW3D CAD. It helps to better use material, save time and improve performance. As a fully automatic nesting solution, more calculation time enables better results. Users can check the quality of each profile through the Nesting report clearly.
VoluMill for ZW3D is an add-in to ZW3D CAM.
In ZW3D 2019, Cleanup Corner Control was added in 2X machining. The smooth toolpath will reduce tool-shock to save tool cost and get better surface quality.
ZW3D CAM 2019 also introduces some new capabilities that are said to reduce cycle time, such as the big step algorithm.
