ZW3D 2013 Beta Now Available


GUANGZHOU, Jan. 30 – ZWSOFT, a leading supplier of CAD/CAM solutions to the AEC and MCAD industries, today officially announced ZW3D 2013 Beta is available. ZW3D 2013 provides features including better sketch, flexible history manager, simplified machining tools as well as a friendlier UI, which help users to streamline design workflow, improve product quality and accelerate time to market. More features will arrive with the official version release in the middle of March.

ZW3D is cost-effective CAD/CAM software for 3D modeling, mold design, and machining. In the previous version, ZW3D provided significant improvements in increased modeling efficiency, advanced CAM operations as well as the new ribbon interface. In ZW3D 2013, more enhancements have been made to improve design efficiency and user-friendliness.

Saving More than 30% Design Time

Designers can control and inquire about all of the conflicting constraint information with new control options for constraint conflicts, which makes sketching more visual and efficient. A new sheet manager has also been introduced providing an even easier drafting experience for designers. The improved history manager allows designers manage feature history, assembly constraints and drawing sheets/views properties in a more consistent way.

Simplified Workflows in Machining

In the CAM manager, engineers can freely manage all items with the fold function. Double clicking can achieve more convenient operations, and the drag and drop function makes programming more flexible. All of these improvements result in a clear and simplified workflow that greatly improves efficiency.

Moreover, ZW3D 2013 provides over 600 new features and improvements including a user friendly UI and powerful data exchange to offer a more enjoyable experience to designers. Click here to learn more about ZW3D 2013 Beta.
