TransMagic's extensive geometry repair tools provide a robust "solid to solid" translation of 3-D CAD
Functional metal parts can be made in a fraction of the time of traditional tool making methods while improving accuracy and replicating exact design intent from the 3-D CAD
computer model into the finished cast parts.
But as systems become more commonplace and inexpensive and include features that can easily be used by small companies, many engineers are discovering that 3-D CAD
can be relevant for them.
We believe that the significant functionality and key feature enhancements to our two affordable 3-D printers, and our recent commercialization of two new manufacturing-capable systems, positions us well to benefit from a growing market opportunity fueled by a population of nearly 500,000 qualified 3-D CAD
users," concluded Reichental.
Alibre redefines professional 3-D CAD
with Alibre Design, the low-cost application for 3-D parametric solid modeling.
With an intuitive set of user interfaces, OP-SIM enables the user to leverage 3-D CAD
models, "as-built" data and other digital information to simulate the plant environment in order to create start-up and operating procedures for virtual reality scripting, playback, training, and documentation.
While part designers have no shortage of 3-D CAD
packages to choose from, mold designers until recently have had to rely on 2-D software for many of their CAD chores.
By the end of the year, Pfaltzgraff has plans to standardize on thinkdesign as its 3-D CAD
system of choice for all tool design and engineering -- after more than 15 years of running a Catia-based CAD operation.
Virtual CMM together with the Zeiss metrology software allows a programmer of a Zeiss CMM to create, modify and prove out CMM part programs using only 3-D CAD
models instead of using the actual CMM hardware and waiting for real parts.
CoCreate with its easy-to-use 3-D CAD
product, SolidDesigner, with its dynamic modeling technology offers user unique and real performance benefits in applications with short time-to-market cycles," said Peder Prahl of Triton.
