GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 24, 2014 — ZW3D, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, unveiled the two secrets of shortening mechanical design procedures in its latest ZW3D white paper, which will bring incomparable convenience to designers.
Concerns of Mechanical Design
Typically, procedures of mechanical design include:
1) Convert 2D designs to 3D models
2) Use the library while designing
3) Setup constraints and animations
4) Conduct 2D documentation or file communication
Therefore, the first concern is synchronization of modifications between one part and its relevant parts and assembly, which can be solved by the parametric technology.
Besides, machining is another concern for most mechanical designers. According to our research, inconformity of designs and machining requirements would decrease production efficiency by 40%.
ZW3D Brings Incomparable Convenience to Designers
ZW3D CAD/CAM software delivers perfect solutions to the above concerns of mechanic designers, supporting synchronized revisions of parts, assembly and CNC program.
1. Flexibility of Personalization
In mechanical design, standard parts are extremely important and can enhance design collaboration with parts providers. Besides, some personalized elements are indispensible as well, such as logos and transitions of the contour. In ZW3D, these personalized work can be flexibly performed at ease. Designers can use wrapping to map mechanical parts with logos, adjust the transition of the connection with a few clicks, and transform the parts in seconds to easily build parts family for future use.
2. Synchronization of Design and Machining
When it moves to the manufacturing stage, smooth communication between design and machining departments is essential. Any change of mechanical parts requires an alteration to corresponding parts, assembly and the whole machining process. Featured with all-in-one CAD/CAM, ZW3D can synchronize modifications in CNC program with any change of designs.
In addition, with the built-in CAM solution, ZW3D shares the same data base between CAD and CAM, meaning the design and machining communications can be included in one file, eliminating data loss with shortened leads time and reduced cost.
