Optimized Stability, Upgraded Translator



ZW3D, a supplier of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, has announced the availability of ZW3D 2017 SP with optimized stability, upgraded translator and many new functions to help engineers deal with the process of product development more efficiently.

With the newly upgraded translator, ZW3D 2017 SP supports mainstream file formats generated by up-to-date CAD solutions like Catia V5/6R2016, NX11, Creo 3.0, SolidWorks 2017, SolidEdge ST9 and Inventor 2017. It enables engineers to maximize data reuse utility and access the latest 3-D data.

One 3-D model can be exported to various file formats at one time and multiple objects can also be exported to a specified format, saving time for users.

In ZW3D 2017 SP, modeling interactions become more user-friendly. For example, users now can display independent objects easily with the new option "show only," which saves engineers time in finding, showing or hiding objects or components.

Variables can be locked or hidden. It is more convenient to drag and drop the variables to reorder them.

Inch DME mold bases and general standard parts are two new advancements in ZW3D 2017 SP. They are designed to provide greater flexibility for mold makers, especially those in the USA.

For example, with the improvement of the general feature in Library, users can now measure distance on the form and retain the last parameters and reuse them in next operation.

In terms of CAM module, ZW3D 2017 SP has added two 5-axis control types to Z level and offset 3-D operation, including 5-axis point control and 3-axis to 5-axis undercut type. They will enable users to mill the back-off shape more efficiently and extend the 5-axis milling capability.
