Produce photorealistic images for design review, marketing collateral, and product packaging:

  • Real-time Raytracing powered by Luxion Keyshot
  • Enhanced lighting with High Dynamic Range Image (HDRI) support
  • Standard library of over 200 predefined materials types

Design Exploration

Rapidly create and explore concepts and modeling alternatives:

  • Explore design changes safely without risking original designs or committing to any change
  • Simultaneously develop different ideas and evaluate all options before making decisions
  • Eliminate manual data duplication and session clean-up for loading and reloading different versions

Fastener Design

Automate fastener geometry creation and hardware assembly:

  • Automate the creation of holes and assembly fasteners
  • Access to standard libraries (ANSI, DIN, JIS)

Advanced Framework Design

Speed design and improve the accuracy of structural framework assemblies:

  • Fully integrated modeling, framework design and analysis
  • Comprehensive and customizable libraries of profiles, joints, connections and equipment
  • Automated beam placement and creation of framework geometry (e.g., joints, connections)

Legacy Data Migration

Support legacy data migration and CAD consolidation efforts:

  • Legacy Drawing Associator (LDA) – automatically connects parametric models to imported legacy data
  • Relink model and drawing to provide associativity (update) and association when checked into Windchill PDMLink
  • Annotation Convertor (AC) – Automatically convert drawing dimensions and notes to 3D annotations

Human Factors Design

Validate and optimize products for human interaction:

  • Quickly insert and customize digital human models to prevent ergonomic mismatches and reduce prototype costs
  • Easily manipulate manikins
  • Visualize human reach and vision
