ZW3D 2014 SP Released with Enriched 3D Modeling and CNC Machining Advancements

Upgrading 3D Modeling with Optimized Functionalities

Guangzhou, China: September 16, 2014— ZW3D, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, today announced the availability of ZW3D 2014 SP. This new version features more than 300 improvements in CAD and CAM modules, enabling users to design more flexibly and machine faster.


Upgrading 3D Modeling with Optimized Functionalities

Improvements of ZW3D 2014 SP cover every aspect of ZW3D's CAD functions, such as upgraded file translator to support data interoperability with JT files, new part family to accelerate design of parts variations, new " Open in ZWCAD" feature to leverage specialized DWG functions and more enhanced modeling tools to provide interactive design environment. These customer-driven optimizations of ZW3D CAD can help users to conceptualize their creative ideas efficiently into products with less project budget and faster time-to-market.

"ZW3D 2014 SP has much better drafting, so I end up importing concept models into ZW3D to detail," commented Dave Dunkin, owner of Mossberg Ltd. "I love the sketch features in ZW3D."

Strengthening CNC Machining with Enhanced Operations

The latest developments of ZW3D CAM focus on roughing tool path, optimizing cut order of sub-regions with around 20%~30% of no-cut travel time saved. With more improved CAM functions, such as automatic corner finishing, wave tool path for stone polishing and easier hole machining on 2D drawings etc., ZW3D 2014 SP can ensure machining reliability, prolong tool life and improve CNC efficiency.

"In my opinion, this version is another major step forward in increasing the usability and power of ZW3D and shows that the rate of improvement continues to accelerate," added Dave.

Featured Product

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
