Guangzhou, China: September 20, 2016 ZW3D, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, today announced the availability of ZW3D 2017 Beta, bringing new features and numerous enhancements to improve efficiency and minimize overheads in the process of designing and manufacturing.
Expansive Sheet Metal Design to Bring Better User Experience
One of the most highlighted advancement in ZW3D 2017 beta would be the expansive sheet metal, delivering engineers & designers much better user experience.
For instance, the newly-added hem flange allows expanded flange creation with all necessary pre-defined hem types provided; the brand-new jog helps users create 2 bends at one time to better suit design technology; the enhanced full flange and partial flange enables users to intuitively control dimension with drag of mouse; the new editing tools are included to avoid reprogramming trouble…
“We’ve invested a lot of R&D resources in sheet metal module,” said Colin Lin, Director of ZW3D Overseas Business, “You’ll definitely embrace a much more user-friendly & productive ZW3D.”
High-Performance CAM to Boost Productivity
The CAM module in ZW3D 2017 beta comes up with lots of new handy functionalities, in a bid to improve the efficiency & reliability of CNC machining.
For example, the flat finishing operation is added to automatically detect all planes and generate tool-path accordingly at just one click, shrinking the programming time up to 50%; the milling and turning strategies can be simulated in the same environment, helping users intuitively analyze each manufacturing status to safeguard machining process…
Better File Compression to Facilitate Smoother Exchange
More flexible control options are provided in configuration form to compress Z3 file. Saving big models in ZW3D 2017 will cost you nearly no time. Especially, the file size of various formats, like NX, Step and z3 etc., can be reduced by 30% compared with previous versions, greatly saving the transferring time of data communication.
ZW3D, an integrated CAD/CAM solution designed for the complete product development process, features the fastest kernel for Solid-surface Hybrid Modeling, non-solid mold parting and smart CNC Machining tactics from 2 axis to 5 axis. It brings customers endless benefits such as reduced costs, optimized design workflow and improved efficiency.
