PowerSHAPE is a versatile CAD program that combines Parasolid with easy-to-use surface, assembly, and triangle modelling. Whether you start with just an idea, or a partially completed or fully detailed CAD model, PowerSHAPE will let you finish the job quickly and easily.
PowerSHAPE makes sketching easy with the patented Intelligent Cursor. The Intelligent Cursor is fast, accurate, and extremely easy-to-use, increasing productivity by shortening construction times.
PowerSHAPE simplifies surface modelling with its unique 'Smart Surfacer' - simply select the sketches and PowerSHAPE automatically creates a surface. Easy-to-use editing tools let you modify surfaces interactively to achieve the perfect shape, no matter how complex.
PowerSHAPE gives you the power to model the most complex of shapes quickly and efficiently, combining Parasolid with easy-to-use surface construction and editing. Direct Modelling enables you to make design changes effortlessly, even on imported geometry with no history.
PowerSHAPE lets you use triangles in exactly the same ways as you would use surfaces or solids. Create complex tooling pieces from imported STL models; wrap ArtCAM reliefs directly onto free-form shapes to create intensely decorated parts, and much more.
It makes sketching simple with its patented Intelligent Cursor, automated surface creation, and streamlines work-flow using process-driven Wizards for complex tasks.
User can use any combination of surfaces, solids or triangles letting you define 3D models that could not be designed using conventional CAD techniques.
It has been designed to complement PowerMILL, FeatureCAM and PartMaker, allowing you to make any manufacturing changes you need without interrupting your machining processes.
It is based on over 40 years of CADCAM know-how, and uses Parasolid, the world's most reliable 3D geometry kernel.
It automates complex tasks such as cavity and core separation, and split surface creation, helping you get parts to your machine tools in the shortest possible time.
