Quickly and easily create powerful images and animations to communicate your design intent and functionality. First Pass Design Analysis: Verify operation and performance while creating your design with fully integrated wizard driven simulation and analysis tools.
Interference Check: Verify that your parts and assemblies will fit, assemble, and operate correctly 2D Drawings: Create production-ready 2D drawings that communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled.
Sheet Metal Design: Quickly and cost-effectively create a wide range of sheet metal part designs using a wide range of flexible tools to meet your specific needs. Quickly create designs that have extrusions and easily generate cut lists and bills of materials to streamline design and manufacturing of welded structures, frames, and bases.
Mold Design: Simplify mold design with fully integrated product design, mold design, and validation that updates all part files automatically to enable changes right up to final manufacturing. CAD Import and Export: Accelerate design, save time and development costs, and increase productivity by converting CAD data into a format that meets your design needs.
Professional features include: File Management: Design Collaboration: Task Scheduling: It lets you run resource intensive processes such as batch importing, exporting, and printing when the computer is normally idle, freeing you to focus on more creative projects. CAD Library: Tolerance Analysis: Check parts and assembly tolerances during design, accelerating the design process, saving time and development costs, and increasing productivity.
Advanced Photorealistic Rendering: By utilizing photo-quality content early in the design process, more informed design decisions can be made, as well as receiving useful early feedback from sales teams and potential customers. Reverse Engineering: Reverse engineering can accelerate product development and reduce risk, save time, and increase productivity.
Design for Manufacturability: Premium features include: Time Based Motion Analysis: Visualize your product moving as it would in the real world and measure the forces and loads on your design. Linear Stress Analysis: Linear stress analysis enables designers and engineers to quickly and efficiently validate quality, performance, and safety—all while creating their design.
Advanced Surface Flattening: Often products like leather goods, sports equipment, footwear, and products made from composite materials, like carbon fiber and fiberglass, have complex shapes, but are manufactured from materials that start out as flat stock, such as cow hides, nylon, cloth, and flat composite sheet.
Piping and Tubing Design: By integrating piping and tubing during the design process, designers can help ensure efficient assembly, operation, and serviceability, avoiding rework, delays, and extra cost.
Electrical Cable Harness and Conduit Design: Integrating these systems during product design rather than adding them later accelerates your development process, saves time and rework costs, and helps to ensure efficient product assembly and serviceability. Routing of Rectangular and Other Sections: Equipment designers, product designers, machine designers, facility designers and others all need rectangular section routing to complete their designs that include ducting, cable trays, conveyors, material handling chutes, and many other systems.
