VX CAD/CAM Improves Assembly Design

Dynamic slicing & new display modes shorten design time and improve communication

Melbourne, Florida – May 13, 2008  – VX Corporation, specializing in CAD/CAM for consumer products and molds, announces assembly visualization tools in VX CAD/CAM Version 13 for improving the overall mechanical design process and the communication of designs.   

3D assembly modeling has proven to be more effective than 2D design in helping designers find and correct interference, clearance and assembly problems.   Often designers were forced to investigate assemblies by hiding and showing components to see into and through assemblies.  While most design systems have tools for visualization, they do not highlight problems.

With Version 13, VX has introduced has an assembly level display tool that lets users toggle the display mode of any component.  So, if a user wants to see inside a gear box or through a mold plate, instead of hiding parts, all he has to do is right-click a part and render it as transparent or wireframe.  VX gives the user even more control by allowing multiple instances of the same part to be displayed differently.  The use of these display tools results in time saved designing and communicating ideas.

Dynamic Slicing in VX CAD/CAM Version 13 has taken the visualization tools one step further.  To meet customer needs VX took dynamic slicing beyond the norm as simply a “cool visualization tool.”  One of the key features of dynamic slicing is the real-time interference check.  Users can see all interferences as the slice plane is moved across the assembly.  This functionality gives instant interference feedback and virtually eliminates the need to process a separate interference check.   Users can continue to model while in a sliced display and furthermore can save sliced views to be recalled later.

Users are finding these new assembly visualization tools to be extremely useful.  Bob Fischer, VP of Sales & Marketing, explains “With the ability to see into and through components and assemblies users can instantly identify problems and interferences early in the design.  These real-time visualization tools also make it much easier to communicate design ideas and problems with customers and marketing teams.”
