Significant Design Optimizations


Being optimized and innovated on a 3D CAD platform, ZW3D 2019 proceeds to a new stage. A new algorithm empowers a higher processing speed of display, calculation and response, delivering faster zooming, panning & rotating of 3D models and facilitating better experience in handling big models with over-1GB files. For instance, patterning 4,480 shapes with 98,560 faces is faster by 75%.



The upgraded assembly is another must-know star in ZW3D 2019. Equipped with new flexible sub-assembly, this edition allows engineers to verify the motion of the whole assembly at ease. Plus, more productive assembly design is ensured, with the in-context assembly tool to enhance usability and fully-customized 3D BOM to manage attributes efficiently.



Augmented Mold Updates


ZW3D 2019 optimizes workflow and extends functions such as clearer parting wizard, enhanced patch tool, multi-region definition and parting to make mold parting easier and more stable.



Reliable CAM Enhancements


VoluMill, the powerful high-performance roughing strategy, has been integrated into ZW3D 2019, reducing cycle time by up to 70%, and increasing productivity by 50%.



Other CAM features include the NC output sub program, cleanup corner control for 2X operation, and flat finishing, which help improve machining quality and efficiently.



Perfect Integration with Third-Party Tools


Besides VoluMill, other native integrations can be spotted, like Alma CAM for nesting to maximize the use of material and PARTsolutions for libraries to minimize the repetitive work of standard parts modeling.
