Full trimmed NURB curve and surface 3D
modeling

Point, line, polyline, NURB curve and NURB
surface entities

Curve entities can include both polyline and
curve sections

Edit points lie ON the curves AND surfaces

Automatic symmetrical design
option

Full relational editing of connected
surfaces or polysurfaces

Dynamically updated geometry constraints
allowed

Attach
points to curves or surfaces

Merge points
together

Fix points
relative to other points

Attach
curves to surfaces

Bond
surfaces edges

Attach
surface edges to middle of other surfaces

Draw and
update ruling lines between curves

All related geometry dynamically updates and
moves during the editing process

Constraints or relationships are optional and
can be added or deleted at any time  they are independent of the entities

New curves or polylines can be attached directly
onto a surface in one step

Curves on surfaces can be edited and faired
like any other curve

Curves on surfaces can be used for trimming
and be dynamically dragged

Move, Move%, and Ooch Point commands for
detailed shaping and fairing of Class A surfaces

Smoothness indicated with dynamic curvature
curves on curves, surface rows or columns, and planar cuts

Smoothness also indicated with Gaussian and
Mean surface shading

Full DXF and IGES input and output,
including IGES types 143 and 144

DXF
and IGES input options and
report

STL
output for trimmed NURB
surfaces

Text file input and output compatible with
spreadsheets

Fast, dynamic display of planesurface and
surfacesurface intersections while editing shapes

2D shapes can be easily created and positioned
using many methods  enter sizes or interactively dragged to fit

Full set of curve and polyline tools for detailed shaping

Insert and delete points on curve/polyline

Edit using points ON the curve (2 styles) or
edit the vertex points

Curvefit of polylines

Refit curves  equal spacing, add points,
cull points

Toggle curve or polyline edit points to/from
hard, knuckle points from/to smooth curve points

Closed, periodic curves allowed

Join and break curve commands

3D bonded solids can be automatically
generated and edited

Triangle solids

Box solids

Wedge solids

Cylinders

Cones

Truncated cones

Spheres

Ellipsoids

Solids can have different sizes, positions and
orientations at the ends

Solids can be truncated, solid, or hollow like a pipe,
with a userdefined thickness

Cylinders, cones, spheres, and ellipsoids can
be full 360 degree revolution or any userdefined range of angles

Solids can be fully capped off and bonded to
create "watertight", editable geometry  even partially revolved
solids

Full set of surface tools for detailed shaping

Create surface by picking 4 corner points

Add/delete surface rows or columns anywhere

Split a surface into two surfaces at any
internal row or column  surfaces remain bonded and editable

Combine two surfaces into one at a bonded edge

Bond or unbond common surface edges

Edit using points ON the surface (2 styles) or
edit the vertex points

Surface extrusion  straight path or to a point

Surface sweeping  using one or two paths  the
shape curve is normal to the path curve or normal to surface

Surface skinning through a group of 2 or more
curves

Extrusion, sweeping, or skinning shape curves can have hard or knuckle
points to create multiple, bonded, editable surfaces  polyline sections
can be curvefit automatically

Interpolate one NURB surface through a
rectangular mesh of points from DXF or IGES input

Surface offsetting or shelling, including
polysurfaces  creates bonded NURB surfaces  offset surface edge joints
are automatically clipped or extended

Refit surfaces  equal space rows/cols, add
or cull rows and cols

Mold row or column shape  force linear, radius arc,
NACA airfoil shape to surface row or column

Plate development using dynamically
calculated "ruling lines" showing twist with colors  fit with
NURB surface

Check degree of developability with Gaussian
curvature color mapping

Finite element type plate expansion for
flattening doublycurved surfaces  calculates all internal strains

Grouping of entities allowed by pick, zoom, or
entity type

Full undo capability

Hide and unhide entity stack

Move, rotate, scale, and mirror of entities
or groups  by dragging or by entering numbers

Snap to points, curves, polylines, or
surfaces

Automatic snap to grid or edit points option

Match points by X,Y,Z, view, or 3D

Enter points by picking, snapping, or by
entering relative or absolute positions

Construction plane displayed for editing in 3D
view

Automatic rotating of construction/edit
plane in 3D
