ZW3D Manufacturing Overview

ZW3D Manufacturing
ZW3D is cost-effective CAD/CAM software for 3D modeling, mold design and machining, which takes engineers from concept to finished product in one easy-to-use, single collaborative environment. Supported by its Show-n-TellTM built-in learning system, ZW3D comprises data exchange to allow efficient reuse and sharing of designs, hybrid modeling with its unique OverdriveTM kernel, mold and die module with cavity preparation tools and standard component libraries, and intelligent, adaptive CNC machining from 2-axis to 5-axis

Directly read many 3D CAD software formats, such as NX, SolidWorks, CATIA, Creo, and Inventor.
· Support 3D exchange standards, including DWG, STEP, IGES, ACIS, DXF, Parasolid, SAT, and STL.
· Export models in PDF and raster images.

· Seamlessly work with 3D solid, surface, and wireframe models.
· Enjoy design flexibility with hybrid modeling.
· Quickly and easily edit all imported geometry through direct edit.
· Generate smooth surfaces with freeform surfacing and dynamic shape morphing.


· Deal easily with large assemblies using ZW3D BurstTM technology.
· Validate and animate assemblies with built-in motion simulation.
· Simplify design work with a large amount of standard parts from PartSolutionsTM library.


· Quickly lay out drawing views, add dimensions, and generate BOM tables.
· Instantly create associative sections and detail views.
· Access built-in translators for leading CAD formats.


· Increase machining efficiency with integrated CAD.
· Dramatically reduce programming time through automatic hole tactics.
· Generate powerful milling functions with 2-axis to 5-axis machines.
· Improve productivity by 30% through QuickMillTM technology’s efficient roughing, rest-roughing, and quality of milled surfaces.
· Employ the new turning module.


· Split any 3D model, not just solid models.
· Rapidly create parting lines and faces, cores, and cavities using a variety of flexible methods.
· Employ many kinds of standard mold bases, such as  DME, HASCO, LKM, and MISUM.
· Speed up preparation time through multiple electrode extraction.
