GUANGZHOU, China, March 12, 2014 --- ZW3D, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, today released ZW3D CAD/CAM 2014. This new version is further developed based on the customer needs analysis, featuring upgraded CAD, more productive Mold and Smarter CAM, to ensure intelligible design and machining experience with high quality.
Enhancing 3D Modeling with Optimized Functionalities
Improvements of ZW3D 2014 are embodied in every aspect of ZW3D’s CAD functions, such as the integrated file translator supporting more up-to-date formats of mainstream design software, simplified feature manager providing faster regeneration, part configuration accelerating design of parts variations and enhanced 2D sheet presenting production-ready 2D drawings efficiently. These customer-driven optimizations of ZW3D CAD can speed up product design process, reduce development time and save project budget.
“I think the improvements of 2D sheet are fantastic. Some are quite amazing and it seems faster than before,” commented by Paul, a ZW3D 2014 Beta user, on ZW3D forum.
Strengthening CNC Machining with Smarter Operations
One of the most anticipated highlights of ZW3D CAM is the newly-developed Tool Path Editor, allowing intuitive control and adjustment of the entire or partial tool-path. With more accurate and smarter calculation of tool paths, ZW3D 2014 can ensure machining reliability, prolong tool life and improve CNC efficiency.
“If you are troubled by adjusting the programming parameters over and over again, just to get an expected tool path,” said Colin Lin, Vice Director of ZW3D Overseas Business, “then you never want to miss the innovative Tool Path Editor in ZW3D 2014.”
Quick Glance at Key Features
- File Translator to support the enhanced import of various formats, like Parasolid, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, UG NX, Creo and Catia etc., and save Z3 files to Catia V4/5
- Assembly Manager to enhance the 3D modeling experience
- In-place Editable Table to easily manage BOM
“The STEP and Parasolid importers (namely File Translator in ZW3D) work better than ever”, said Dave Bebbington, Chief Engineer of Sketch Evolution Ltd. “The import of Parasolid files in previous versions comes always with some errors. But with ZW3D 2014 Beta, files have imported 100% perfect. ”
