ZW3D Features - See What's Included in ZW3D | ZWSOFT


  • Sketch Block

    Sketch Block

    Turn objects into sketch blocks and create new objects by inserting blocks and quickly changing their sizes.

  • Geometry Healing

    Geometry Healing

    Analyze and quickly repair abnormal conditions (e.g. open edges, gaps, duplicate faces, intersection loops) found in the geometry of imported files.

  • Layer Manager

    Layer Manager

    Quickly sort and organize model features in 3D: easily arrange layers via the Category attribute; control and edit layers with the Filter and Select Object in Layer functions.

  • Customize Features

    Customize Features

    Create one feature with all features of some geometries so that you can easily reuse features and avoid repetitive work.

  • Intelligent Design Tools

    Intelligent Design Tools

    Raster images can be embossed on the surface of your model nice and quick with the Emboss command. Morph and Winding can be used for objects, surfaces, and STL models.

  • 3D BOM

    3D BOM

    The attribute information of all parts can be displayed in rows and columns of a 3D BOM, edited, and directly exported to 2D engineering drawings.

  • Flexible Sub-Assembly

    Flexible Sub-Assembly

    By changing the degrees of freedom of the sub-assembly in the general assembly, you can continue changing the sub-assembly components with DOF in the general assembly.

  • Gear Generator

    Gear Generator

    It can quickly generate spur gears, bevel gears and worms and wheels as parts or assemblies and customize parameters at all levels.

  • Automatic Annotation

    Automatic Annotation

    Efficiently generate linear/diameter/radius/hole dimensions and so on with all the objects in a view or annotate the selected objects.

  • PMI Annotation

    PMI Annotation

    You can add annotations to the 3D model. All the PMI objects can be listed in the view manager and directly exported to 2D engineering drawings.

  • Sheet Metal Design

    Sheet Metal Design

    Complex sheet metal design can be completed with Bend, Loft, Louver, Punch, etc. The imported files can be converted into sheet metal parts for unfolding, bending, or design. The advanced FastBlank functions allow you to generate the unfolded effect.

  • Reverse Engineering

    Reverse Engineering

    Prepare point cloud data for surface generation by deleting, trimming, dividing, simplifying the imported point cloud. A perfect mesh can be created from the processed point cloud and automatically converted into a NURBS surface.

  • Piping Design
