PowerSHAPE Pro

PowerSHAPE Pro introduces powerful new tools to make re-engineering complex parts faster and easier, even for occasional users. Use any combination of primitives, shrink-wrapped surfaces, or faces created from wireframe to re-engineer accurate 3D models ready for manufacture.


Features

Automatic Mesh Segmentation

The automatic mesh segmentation tool divides a mesh into primitive regions, to identify:

  • Cones
  • Cylinders
  • Planes
  • Spheres
  • Tori
  • Revolves
  • Extrusions
  • Primitive surfaces or solids are then fitted automatically to these regions, minimising design time and reducing errors. An easy-to-use dialog gives you precise control over the fit tolerance and the types of primitive to be identified.

     

    Manual Mesh Segmentation

    For more complex geometry, or when you want finer control, the segmentation tool can also be used manually. Choose the region to fit, and then select the primitive type to use. As each region is fitted, it changes colour, making it easy to see any areas of the model that require further work.

     

     

     

    Shrink-wrapped Surfaces

    Free-from regions, or areas with a lot of detail, such as logos or textures, can now be replaced with a single shrink-wrapped surface. Powerful selection tools let you choose the target area, while a simple to use dialog gives you precise control of the surface fit.

     

     

     

     

    Automatic Trimming

    Once the main surfaces have been created, they can be trimmed together automatically to from a single, closed solid. Interactive controls allow you to dynamically adjust how surfaces are trimmed to one another, or to mark specific faces or regions to keep or delete.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    KeyShot

    KeyShot is a powerful, yet easy-to-use tool for creating photo-realistic images. As well as a comprehensive library of physically accurate metals, plastics, gems and other materials, KeyShot also includes a wide range of lighting studios and backgrounds. The intuitive drag and drop interface is easy to learn, helping you create stunning images even if you have never used a rendering package before.

    KeyShot is included free of charge with PowerSHAPE Pro, and 'watermarked' with PowerSHAPE.
