Palm Bay, Florida — May 16, 2006 — VX Corporation, the pioneering developer of advanced, integrated CAD/CAM solutions for engineers and industrial designers, announces the addition of ReadySketch, a parametric sketcher library that delivers immediate productivity gains with a collection of often used and readily available shapes.
Introducing the new VX ReadySketch Library
ReadySketch is a comprehensive library of predefined, fully dimensioned and constrained sketches included in VX CAD/CAM. Primitive and other often used industrial shapes are supplied for rapid creation of 3D models. The library is well organized on an easy to navigate tab-deck menu. ReadySketches have been carefully defined to satisfy a wide range of uses. The use of several shapes in one sketch is supported which is very advantageous when relationships between shapes needs to be controlled. Additionally, several specialized ReadySketches provide hole array targets and other hard-to-find details such as combing/corrugation, lattice curves and packaging slots. Common industrial shapes such as plastic material symbols are also included.
Cut Design Time
Using pre-defined 2D sketches dramatically reduces the time needed to complete a 3D model, and at the same time, delivers a model that can be instantly modified by simply editing the sketch dimensions. Users don't even have to go back into sketch mode to modify the dimensions; they can just as easily make modifications in 3D model space. Simple to use and an immediate time saver!
Users new to 3D CAD can start producing reliable 3D parametric models in minutes and can learn about parametric dimensioning and constraints from ReadySketch examples.
Bob Fischer, VX vice president, sales and marketing said "Many 3D models consist of common 2D shapes that are extruded, swept, revolved or lofted and joined to define a final shape. ReadySketch delivers fantastic time saving and robust 3D models. Designers everywhere will benefit from using VX ReadySketch".
