ZW3D-mould-dye-graphicZW3D 2010 SP1 Professional includes all of the functionalities of ZW3D 2010 SP1 Standard with a full set of tools for mold & die makers and Reverse Engineering module.

Built on the ZW3D OverdriveTM kernel that works seamlessly with solids and surfaces, tool & die designers can get right to work, saving hours by eliminating model repair time and automating routine tasks.

  • Automatic and manual parting lines creation

  • Real-time draft and curvature analysis

  • Direct face and feature editing works on solids and non-solids

  • Automatic and manual parting and shutoff face creation

  • Insert and Slide creation

  • Cooling channels

  • Standard mold base library

"ZW3D handles organic forms so well." Guidant Corp.

As with parting lines, ZW3D 2010 SP1 Professional can automate core cavity removal. A couple of quick mouse clicks can handle the entire process. ZW3D 2010 SP1 Professional includes powerful commands for constructing a wide-range of parting and run-out faces for gauge, fixture, and die designers.

Users work associatively or non-associatively through the design process, from the imported file to the final assembly and details. Changes to customer files are easily assimilated into your existing designs.

With the electrode wizard, ZW3D 2010 SP1 Professional speeds creation of the mold electrode that automatically handles electrode offset. Our unique planar option burns the electrode nation for all those up to 40 percent faster than other methods.

  • Fast electrode design

  • Electrode blanks and automatic trode assemblies

  • Associative trode tables and detailing

With Reverse Engineering (Point Cloud) functionality, you can generate and modify complex 3D models quickly from existing physical parts. It's all built into ZW3D, designers can scan and repair old tooling quickly. This provides for a very strong combination that designs complex molds and dies.
