ZW3D 2019 SP: More Robust and User-Friendly CAD/CAM

Sponsored by Businesswire

announced the launch of ZW3D
2019 SP
. It introduces new features and enhancements that directly
respond to users’ requests and satisfy the needs of complex product
development, delivering more robust and user-friendly CAD/CAM solution.


1) Enhanced Catia®/Solidworks®
2D Drawing Import

Catia®/Solidworks® 2D drawing import has been
significantly improved. When importing 2D sheets, it can recogonize more
line types and dimension types to bring more accurate importing results
and smoother interaction with 2D data.

2) Friendlier File Management

File management gets more user-friendly. For file import, users can
search subdirectories under the assembly, to prevent file missing. For
file storage, users can set the default storage path in the working
folder, to make file-saving more efficient.

3) More Flexible and Efficient Modeling

Some features have been upgraded to deliver higher modeling efficiency
and flexibility. For instance, modeling rules for the Parent and Child
operations have been optimized to achieve more accurate regenerative
results. Also, when inserting components, the datum can be displayed,
making it convenient for users to edit. Besides, Pattern feature can be
applied to the assembly hole to speed up the assembly process.


Mold module has been polished to help users finish mold design with
ease. When handling region analysis, the regions which are not connected
can be detected, realizing correct region analysis results. Moreover,
ejector pins will be trimmed at the assembly level and part level,
bringing forth more accurate BOM table.


CAM module has been optimized to deliver higher efficiency. For example,
more types of arc output, including Helical Arc and Spacial Arc, have
been added to extend machining capabilities. And the Chamfer operation
has been enhanced, so that the lead-in toolpath will be automatically
adjusted to helical lead-in when the cutting space is smaller than the
lead-in arc. Moreover, ”XY Arcs” is selected as default in Flat Finish
operation, increasing the machining efficiency.
