Service Pack 1 for ZW3D 2012 CAD/CAM Adds Over 180 Enhancements

GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 26, 2012 — ZWSOFT, a leading supplier of 2D and 3D CAD/CAM solutions to the AEC and MCAD industries, today made available ZW3D 2012 Service Pack 1 to customers, who will enjoy 30 new functions and over 180 improvements to existing 3D CAD/CAM features.

New Features and Improvements

Service Pack 1 advances ZW3D 2012 in the areas of visualization, data exchange, design, CAM, and post-processing. Highlights include the addition of many more post-processors for CAM operations, curve construction based on equations, and better support for AMD/ATI graphics boards.

  • Improved visualization and collaboration allows two copies of ZW3D to run at the same time. The new type of PDF is added and ZW3D file can be saved as PDF format. For better visualization, lines under one pixel are now thickened automatically, dimension elements have more options for colors customization, and support for graphics boards from AMD is improved.
  • More efficient design is made possible through new equation-based curves that can be generated from more than 70 supplied equations. Curves can be easily defined by three different coordinate methods, and a friendly interface makes it easy to modify parameters and equations of the curves. Patterns now support punches, and can be accurately applied to closed curves and surfaces. Additionally, there are many more improvements to direct edit, filleting, plane alignment, and in the areas of 2D drafting and sketching.
  • Enhanced support for manufacturing includes easier geometry alignments, improved parting lines from silhouettes, and more split face options. For turning operations, calculations are speedier, collision avoidance is substantially improved, dual spindles are supported, and much, much more. Additions to 2X milling include external helical cuts, new tap operations, and rough depths overrides. In 3X milling, ZW3D now supports non-ball reference tool improved undercut operations, and better tool-path corner rounding.
  • Added post-processors for 2-3X machining (HNC-21_22M) and many more 5X post-processors, including GSK25i, SINUMERIK840D, and heidenhain530.
