May 16, 2018 — ZW3D, a supplier of CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, announced the global launch of ZW3D 2018 SP, which is designed to be more user-friendly in CAD/CAM design with productivity enhancements.
Dedicated options are added in translator to bridge 2D&3D design. ZW3D 2018 SP enables users to export the view of each component as a block in DWG format.
The translator supports the latest mainstream formats, like SolidWorks 2018, SolidEdge ST10, Invertor V2018, etc. Additionally, imported graphic data, such as *.3DXML file from Catia, *.cgr, can be exported as STL files.
With 250+ bugs fixed, the latest version is designed to be more stable and user-friendly in daily use. Freeing users from waste operations is always the pursuit of ZW3D.
Considering practical situations, more small CAM settings are available for manufacturing error reduction. For example, surface feature for QM operation supports Offset normal; Heidenhain 3X post processor supports tool radius compensation function.
ZW3D CAM 2019 will introduce 2-3 axis rough milling functions of VoluMill. .
