GUANGZHOU, China, May 28, 2019 – ZWSOFT announced the launch of ZW3D 2019 SP. It introduces new features and enhancements that directly respond to users’ requests and satisfy the needs of complex product development, delivering more robust and user-friendly CAD/CAM solution.
1) Enhanced CATIA/SOLIDWORKS 2D Drawing Import
The improved CATIA/SOLIDWORKS 2D drawing import is the star in this version. When importing the 2D sheets, more line types and dimensions types can be recognized to display more precise geometry, line types, dimensions, text, etc., enabling you to enjoy smoother interaction with 2D data. Want to try this excellent tool? Now you can take it for free! From June 1 to August 31, buy or upgrade to ZW3D 2019 SP, then you can get a free plug-in for CATIA/SOLIDWORKS 2D drawing import. Know more.
Besides, JT import and export are also supported now. ZW3D translator is stronger than ever before.
2) Friendlier File Management
In this version, friendlier file management is ready for you. For file import, you can search subdirectories under an assembly to import 3D CAD files, preventing you from missing some of the parts. For file storage, working folder allows you to define the default file storage path, enabling more efficient file storage.
3) Multi-Export: From Multiple Objects to Multiple Formats
After finishing design, Multi-Export allows you to export multiple objects to multiple formats at the same time, accelerating your exporting work.
4) More Flexible and Efficient Modeling
In this version, some features were upgraded to deliver higher modeling efficiency and flexibility. For example, when dealing with the 3D BOM, the attributes used frequently can be inherited simply by right-clicking. Also, modeling rules for the Parent and Child operations in Suppress feature have been optimized to help you make regenerative results more correct.
What’s more, operations related to assembly have also been improved, such as the datum of components, which can now be displayed when inserting the components, making it convenient for you to edit. Moreover, Pattern feature can be applied to the assembly hole, speeding up your assembly process.
Mold module was polished to help you finish mold design with ease. When handling region analysis, the regions which are not connected with each other can now be detected, realizing correct region analysis result.
Ejector pins will be trimmed at the assembly level and part level, bringing you more accurate BOM table. Moreover, moldbase can be applied to single-object files now, offering more flexibility to your mold design.
CAM module has also been optimized to deliver higher efficiency. Firstly, more types of arc output, including Helical Arc and Spacial Arc, have been added to extend the machining capabilities.
Secondly, when conducting Chamfer operation, the lead-in toolpath will be automatically adjusted to helical lead-in when the cutting space is smaller than the lead-in arc.
Besides, you can define the hole drilling sequence either by yourselves (Pick Order) or by default (Auto).
Thirdly, ”XY Arcs” is selected as default in Flat Finish operation, increasing the efficiency and quality of machining.
Also, more link types are provided in Ramp to offer you more choices for ramp cutting and enhance the machining efficiency.
