Schott Systeme Introduces New 2D/3D Streamlining Tool

Schott Systeme - New 2D/3D Streamlining Tool

Highlighting one of the new 'streamlining' design features within their CAD/CAM package 'Pictures by PC 3.2', German software developer Schott Systeme have published a new video outlining how one single universal function has been designed to consolidate both 2D and 3D movement, rotation and scaling commands.

MVEX Function

In a move to greatly simplify how users interact with 2D and 3D geometry, the universal MVEX function helps combine a large number of existing commands into one single tool. Simple to use, the geometry is firstly selected, afterwhich an axis from the onscreen symbol is chosen to move along, rotate around or scale in. Ensuring a high level of flexibility, objects can then be dynamically dragged, or alternatively adjusted along the axis using a specific distance, angle or scale factor.

Making 3D Alignment Easy

The benefits are especially noticeable when working on complex 3D assemblies containing parts that do not align to the normal XYZ planes. Intuitively the function automatically aligns the axis symbol to the parts orientation using either the part face/edge or a point. Users then just select the parts natural axis, and move/rotate/scale it regardless of where it is lying in 3D space.
