GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 26, 2016 — ZW3D, one of the world’s leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, today announced the availability of ZW3D 2016 Beta, delivering much more collaborative product design to connect seamlessly your upstream & downstream partners.
“We’ve been devoted to developing innovative and better CAD products for over a decade,” said Colin Lin, Director of ZW3D Overseas Business. “And this time, ZW3D 2016 Beta comes with numerous enhancements to be even easier and more intuitive to learn and use.”
Simplifying Manufacturing Processes with Newly-added PMI
One of the most significant features of ZW3D 2016 Beta is the newly-developed PMI (Product Manufacturing Information). Designers can define technique information, such as geometric dimensions, 3D annotations, surface finish and material specifications, directly on the 3D entities to guide the manufacturing process. This will help speed up interaction, streamline production and cut quotation time.
Diversifying Sketching Options with New 3D Sketch
3D sketch is another milestone to verify ZW3D’s progress in facilitating extremely easy-to-use and vivid modeling atmosphere. With common 2D sketch, everything is projected into the flat plane, leaving all constraints to be manipulated two-dimensionally. Now, users are free to snap or constrain sketches to any faces or 3D wireframe entities.
Empowering Data Connectivity with Upgraded File Translator
The new version takes its powerful & seamless data interoperability technology to an even higher level, supporting up-to-date file formats of mainstream solutions, like NX 10, Catia V4/V5/V6, Creo 3.0, Inventor V2016, Parasolid 28.1+ & ACIS 2016, etc., to smoothen the interaction with suppliers or partners, minimize costs of data exchange and reduce data errors.
In terms of CAM module, ZW3D 2016 Beta includes numerous improvements on the robustness and accuracy of 3X Quick Mill in roughing and finishing, like new path pattern guide, simplified cut boundary setting & new region order control, etc.
