Today's Engineering Challenge is to extend the value of 3D to everyday engineering communications
SpaceClaim helps engineers interact with CAD geometry in exciting new ways. Any engineer can make dramatic edits to models, conceptualize on-the-fly, and communicate quickly and easily with colleagues, customers, and suppliers. Engineering teams can finish projects with ease, in a fraction of the time. Sales and business development groups can win more business by using SpaceClaim to communicate their proposals in compelling and realistic 3D.
SpaceClaim's 3D Direct Modelling technology revolutionises the way you think about working with 3D solid models because it lets you focus on your design without the complexity of traditional CAD. For example, you can reuse data without planning and remix geometry from other designs, even those created in other CAD systems. You can take a design where it needs to go, regardless of how it was built or the CAD system in which it was created.
Create new concepts and share them with other engineers before entering the detailed design phase: together, you get the concepts right and avoid expensive last-minute design changes. From a blank slate, start drawing 3D shapes as easily and freely as you would on the back of a napkin. De-feature and simplify parts for analysis or manufacturing and optimise the design without being constrained by original modelling intent.
Take a look at the features:
- Industry Leading Direct Modelling
Direct modelling tools scale from simple shapes to complex blends and surfaces. Pull and Move tools work on both face- and edge-based editing, allowing maximum flexibility.
- 3D Cross Section and Manipulation
Draw 3D extruded, revolved, and swept geometry without ever leaving a 2D cross section. Sketch out a new concept and get a solid 3D design.
- Parameters without Constraints
Change the value of a dimension, simply by selecting what you want to move and editing the value: your geometry goes to the right place. There's no need to set up complicated systems of constraints.
- Flexible Assembly Structure
Turn a part into an assembly or vice versa. Create assembly structure before you've drawn a shape, or draw a dozen parts and create the structure later. Never worry about inter-component relationships preventing changes.
- Design in any Context
The same tools work to edit assemblies, parts, drawing views, and 3D mark-ups enable you to create and make changes wherever you see the need. You don't have to worry about switching to the right mode.
- Fast, Versatile Sheet Metal
Direct modelling becomes even faster when working with sheet metal. SpaceClaim can quickly convert solids to sheet metal, interactively helping explore unfold options.
