3D Sculptor

BROWSER-BASED SUBDIVISION SURFACE MODELING


3D Sculptor enables the fast and intuitive creation of organic, complex shapes:

  • Push and pull interaction to create complex surfaces quickly
  • Sketch guides where images and sketches can be used to create 3D surface geometry
  • Ability to automatically convert subdivision surfaces to NURBS geometry
  • Creation of stylized models faster than with parametric tools
  • Seamlessly switch between conceptual modeling and detailed modeling environments and eliminate the need for rework
  • Native integration with all 3DEXPERIENCE tools, including 3D Creator for parametric design

3D SheetMetal Creator

BROWSER-BASED SHEET METAL MODELING


3D SheetMetal Creator streamlines the design of complex sheet metal components, assemblies, and enclosures:

  • Sheet metal-specific feature set and context toolbars such as walls, flanges and corner reliefs.
  • Create complex 3D sheet metal models for press brake manufacturing, and automatically generate 2D patterns that update instantly with the folded geometry.
  • Utilize existing mechanical or electrical assemblies as reference geometry to model enclosures and easily insert commercial, off-the-shelf items into sheet metal assemblies.
  • Intuitive single-modeling environment to convert features to components, and components to assemblies, making enclosure assembly design more flexible and efficient.
  • Rapidly create and iterate designs in a matter of clicks, avoiding the assembly structure constraints and upfront planning required by traditional CAD applications.

3D Structure Creator

BROWSER-BASED FEATURE-BASED FRAME MODELING


3D Structure Creator provides a dedicated tool set for designing manufacturable structures:

  • Create structure members based on model edges, 2D sketch elements, or curves
  • Choose profiles from a library of standard types and sizes
  • Automatically trim members at endpoints and corners
  • Automatically add gussets, end caps, and plates
  • Automatically generate a cutlist based on the design to use for fabrication
  • Add detail to structure designs by adding cutouts to structure members
  • Increase productivity with streamlined structure design workflows and a dedicated design environment

Manufacturing Definition Creator
