St. Petersburg, Russia: 29 September, 2011 -- ASCON Group, developer and integrator of professional CAD/AEC/PLM software solutions, hosted its award-winning KOMPAS-3D mechanical CAD software at EMO Hannover earlier this month. At the show, the company's preview of the next release of its software, KOMPAS-3D V13, was met with high interest by attendees.
From 19 through 24 September, the ASCON stand at the flagship fair was popular with designers, engineers, industrial company executives, students, and others interested in high-performance 3D design. International visitors from the metalworking industry paid special attention to the broad collaboration capabilities of KOMPAS-3D, its advanced surface modeling functions, add-on for steel structure design, and FEM capabilities -- as well as its intuitive and user-friendly interface, and very reasonable price for a system that operates at such a high level.
KOMPAS-3D V13 is due to be released a month's time. The new version of KOMPAS-3D includes more than 100 updates and improvements. Among them are:
- Usability improvements;
- Solid modeling and drawing improvement;
- Surface modeling;
- BOM reports of 2D geometry elements;
- New Add-Ons.
