Based on innovational Solid-Surface Hybrid
users can make Boolean operations for surface parts directly with solid geometries
• Abundant tools can help handle your complex
assemblies via both top-down and
bottom-up design. You can flexibly assemble, manage, and edit the components,
view different status, update
associated models, etc.
• Reliable verification tools can help ensure the manufacturability of your design
• 2D drawings, with detailed
information of dimensions, tolerances and
annotations, can be easily created for manufacturing and
inspection. Plus, they can be updated
automatically as models or assemblies change.
• PMI tools allow you to make dimensions and annotations intuitively on 3D entities, making design collaboration a piece of cake.
Various geometric topological states, such as repeated
surfaces and open edges
can be accurately analyzed and repaired.
With geometric gaps efficiently filled and missing surfaces rebuilt, a complete solid model is ready to ensure data quality.
• Parts can be split directly through parting lines or parting
faces, which can be created
automatically, saving your time for model healing.
• Multi-cavity design is supported to meet various design demands of different products.
The built-in library of mold bases and standard parts can be modified and personalized, meeting requirements of different countries and companies.
Specialized tools are provided to quickly create runners, cooling systems, slides and gates, which can also be easily and intuitively modified.
• Easy-to-use electrode extract tools allow you to
deal with complex electrodes
• Electrodes and 2D sheets can be correctly created in batches to save your time.
Hole & 2-Axis Tactics can help generate manufacturable toolpaths automatically, cutting programming time by 70%.
• More than 40 types of machining operations are
available to facilitate efficient
machining, so that you can deal with all kinds of manufacturing work
• No matter on Nurbs or STL geometry, desired toolpaths, or even undercut toolpaths can be easily generated.
• 5-axis milling provides a complete
solution for indexing and 4 to 5-axis
machining, and it's also able to work with STL file.
• Comprehensive functions, like Swarf, Drive Curve, Drive Surface, Flow Cut, Side Cut and Point Control are available to extend machining capabilities for different scenarios.
Numerous verification and simulation tools are
delivered to ensure feasible, reliable and
• Solid Verify can be used to simulate the actual machining process and analyze the excess materials, realizing reliable and efficient machining.
• Analysis functions help detect collisions and gouges between tools and stocks, tables, clamps, etc.
• The accurate calculation of the minimum tool hang length ensures the safety of machining.
ZW3D Post offers advanced post-processing capabilities to convert cutter location data (APT-CL) into machine-specific codes (GM codes) required by CNC machines. All classes of 3 to 5-axis milling machines are supported.
