Advanced Surfacing

$1,995.00

  • Do you struggle to create freeform/organic shapes with SOLIDWORKS®?
  • Do you avoid making changes to surface features because it is too time consuming?
  • Do you have difficulty creating aesthetically pleasing Class A surfaces with tangent and curvature continuity?
  • Are you forced to utilize software other than SOLIDWORKS® for designing organic shaped components?
  • Do you need to import polygonal objects created outside of SOLIDWORKS®?

We have an answer that may work for you! Power Surfacing is a revolutionary SOLIDWORKS® plugin product that will fundamentally change the way that engineers and designers design parts in SOLIDWORKS®. Power Surfacing makes it easy and fun to design complex free form aesthetically pleasing Class A surfaces in SOLIDWORKS®. No longer will you have to fight with patching a set of trimmed surfaces together to form complex curved shapes; manipulating Power Surfacing parts is as simple as modeling with clay. With the release of Version 4.1 we have turned our Power Body objects into macro features so that they behave more like typical SOLIDWORKS® features, and they can be created and edited directly from SOLIDWORKS® assemblies. And you can now easily use Power Surfacing bodies as instances or references.

For all of the same great features plus the power of reverse engineering, check out nPower’s Power Surfacing RE for SOLIDWORKS.

  • Do you need to create SOLIDWORKS® geometry from scanned meshes?
  • Do you need to recreate or modify existing parts?
  • Do you need to convert meshes from other sources into SOLIDWORKS®?

Power Surfacing RE (Reverse Engineering) is the solution you need to get your job done effectively and quickly. Our Power Surfacing RE product has a unique set of tools to allow you to rebuild shapes in SOLIDWORKS® from a large variety of polygonal meshes. It can import meshes from: 3D scanners, Finite Element Modeling, 3D sculpting programs, 3D printer files, other polygonal modeling tools, and online polygonal model databases. Power Surfacing RE has the ability to constrain to and reference underlying meshes to capture the original design shape. The Power Surfacing RE tools enable you to quickly define a Power Surface shape over the top of the referenced mesh. With the existing Power Surfacing tools you will be able to modify and evolve the design.

Features

  • Includes the full Power Surfacing Toolset
  • Import meshes and display as a reference mesh
  • Convert existing SOLIDWORKS® geometry into reference mesh
  • Drawing tools with automatic face creation
  • Constrain points to reference mesh
  • Automatic retopologizing of enclosed areas
  • Add geometry to cover holes while matching curvature in reference mesh
  • Distance display to measure approximation of reference mesh
  • Interpolate or “vacuum seal” to closely approximate the reference mesh shape

Simulation

$300.00

SIMSOLID™ is next generation, high capacity, structural FEA. It uses new computational methods which allow the solution of assemblies with hundreds to thousands of parts directly on a standard desktop computer. SIMSOLID is the perfect complement to existing CAD embedded simulation. It extends the analysis range and provides feedback in seconds to minutes.

 

With SIMSOLID you can:

  • ANALYZE ORIGINAL CAD GEOMETRY DIRECTLY– SIMSOLID’s unique technology completely eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time consuming, expertise extensive and error prone tasks done in traditional FEA. SIMSOLID works with the fully detailed CAD representation. It eliminates the requirement to simplify the design to remove small features or parts such as bolts with threads, washers and nuts, small imprints, fillets or rounds. SIMSOLID is capable of solving large assemblies containing multi-scale parts that are both thick and thin or big and small. SIMSOLID can solve complex lattice based 3D printed parts.
  • HANDLE REAL WORLD DESIGN COMPLEXITY– SIMSOLID has been performance tuned to analyze complex parts and large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA and do it efficiently on a desktop class computer. SIMSOLID is tolerant of imprecise geometry. Its assembly connections are industry best at handling ragged contact surfaces with both gaps and overlapping geometry.
  • ACCURACY IS BUILT-IN– SIMSOLID controls solution accuracy using smart functions and a unique automatic adaptive process. In contrast to FEA, the adaptivity is driven by absolute measures of approximation errors. In SIMSOLID, adaptivity is not an option, it is always active.
  • EVALUATE DESIGN CHANGE– SIMSOLID’s unique multi-CAD design studies allow you to quickly evaluate and compare the structural performance from different geometric configurations and CAD sources. All analysis definitions update automatically making design iterations fast and painless.

SIMSOLID comes with complete CAD integration to SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk Fusion 360 and Onshape as well as a generic STL reader. More information on SIMSOLID can be found at www.simsolid.com.

**Price is Per Month. Annual rate also available at $2,000 Per Year.
