RAPID 2013: Updated CAD Modeling Software


The new PowerShape CAD software offers enhancements that speed the production of designs ready for manufacturing, whether starting from imported CAD data or from scanned data. The RAPID 2013: Updated CAD Modeling Softwarepackage combines solid, surface, wireframe and direct modeling to provide a comprehensive range of modeling techniques in a single CAD program. The main enhancement in the new release is the ability to rewind the solid history tree of a model to any position using a graphical slider. Edits can then be made, either by applying the Solid Doctor to repair problematic data or by using the full range of direct modeling tools in PowerShape, without losing the history of the model. Once the required edits have been completed, the rewind point can be moved or deleted; the complete solid history is then rebuilt automatically. PowerShape Pro combines these extensive CAD tools with point-cloud and triangle modeling, including tools for the real-time acquisition, repair and editing of point-cloud data from laser scanners.
