Schott Systeme Showcases Advanced 3D Modeling

January 16, 2007
--- Highlighting one of a range of advanced 3D modelling tools included within their CAD CAM software ‘Pictures by PC 3.2’, German developer Schott Systeme have published a new video outlining how ‘3D Bending’ can help customers in the fields of mechanical, concept and jewelry design.

Advanced Deformation

Differing to the usual modelling tools found within 3D CAD software, such as extrude, rotate and skinning, 3D bending forms part of a set of advanced ‘deformation’ functions. Simple but very powerful, the user needs only enter a bend ‘radius’ and/or bend ‘angle’, in addition to the bend direction and neutral axis.

Real World Applications

Obvious applications for such a tool are the creation of sheet metal parts, with the bending of flanges and lips. However Schott Systeme are using their latest CAD CAM ‘Tricks n Tips’ video to showcase some more imaginative uses of the bending tool. Featured examples include jewelry design and the transformation of intricate 2D bracelet and ring designs into 3D sculpted forms. In addition, concept designers will also get a glimse of how such a tool can help in the initial stages of product design.
