ZW3D, a giant in advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry announces the worldwide availability of ZW3D 2018 Beta. The CAD library will enhance the productivity of design and manufacturing with optimized details.

Library Design, a unified part management to shorten design process

This part of the package improves the workflow of prebuilt 3D CAD models. The renewed Library supports data from configuration or external Excel files. With the brand-new library loading panel, the user could expect a more friendly searching experience.

In other terms, when the design process is accelerated, there is a clear reduction of design mistakes and a better productivity.

Data Exchange

Lossless data translation has always been a key issue of ZW3D. The supplier of CAD/CAM solutions wanted to stay associated with the imported geometry to get the latest data.

That’s why, in ZW3D 2018, besides supporting the latest mainstream CAD data, new ”Associative import” function bridges ZW3D model and other 3D models, including CATIA V5, Creo, NX, SolidWorks and Solid Edge system, to make sure the imported 3D model is up to date.

The updated translator then achieves the maximum reuse of 3D CAD data, making the cooperative work smoother

Friendly design experience and flexible methods

Improvements in ZW3D 2018 include a new file browser, different colors for entities and components, a number input box with default unit, and an “APPLY” button in most commands.

As for flexible methods, they enable the user to adjust 3D model geometries and get robust modification results.
