ZWSOFT announced ZW3D 2013 Beta is available. It includes better sketch, a flexible history manager, simplified machining tools and a friendlier UI, according to the company. More features will be included with the official version release in March.
ZW3D is a CAD/CAM software for 3D modeling, mold design, and machining. In the previous version, ZW3D provided improvements in increased modeling efficiency and 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.
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, and the improved history manager allows designers manage feature history, assembly constraints and drawing sheets/views properties in a more consistent way.
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, the company says.
