ZW3D is cost-effective CAD CAM software for 3D modeling, mold design, and machining, which takes engineers from concept to finished product in one easy-to-use, single collaborative environment. Supported by its Show-n-TellTM built-in learning system, ZW3D includes data exchange to allow efficient reuse and sharing of designs, hybrid modeling with its unique OverdriveTM kernel, mold and die design with cavity preparation tools and component libraries, and intelligent, adaptive CNC machining from 2-axis through to 5-axis.
The new 2012 release offers our customers improved workflow with the new ribbon interface, all-new mold and die design, new 2X turning, more efficient CAM operations, enhanced 3D modeling and 2D sketching functions, and new flexibility in importing and exporting 3D models.Starting at a price of just US$1,500, ZW3D 2012 is available in five editions to satisfy the differing needs of commercial users. For basic users, ZW3D Standard is meant for product design; ZW3D Professional adds mold design; ZW3D 2X Machining is for basic CAD and two-axis machine; ZW3D 3X Machining for three-axis machining, as well as for basic CAD; and ZW3D Premium is for all-in-one CAD/CAM modeling with 2-3X machining.
What’s new in this version: Enhanced User Interface, refined modeling, new start-to-part process for mold design, better machining.
