3DQuickPress is our 3D solution integrated with SOLIDWORKS for the progressive die industry. The 2D approach has dominated the design of progressive dies over the last century. Benefits in using 3D cannot drive the industry to change their design tool due to the drawback of performance and long learning curve in 3D design. 3DQuickPress aims for ultimate performance, ease of use, and a short learning curve to enable tooling engineers to use the power of 3D design. 3DQuickPress provides solutions ranging from blanking development to strip layout design and die set structure design. The powerful Strip Layout Manager provides intuitive tools to iterate your design simply by dragging and dropping with instant graphic feedback. Once strip layout design is finished, cutting punches, bending punches, and inserts are created automatically as well as the die plate opening with clearance. 3DQuickPress is the key to getting tremendous benefits from 3D modeling. Key functions of 3DQuickPress include: unfolding, strip layout design, automatic punch generation, automatic like parts recognition for accurate Bill of materials (BOM), standard component library, die set library, automatic die plate holes generation, and powerful sketch tools.

Which 3DQuickTools package is right for you?
3DQuickPress® is a SOLIDWORKS® add-on for progressive die design. With a 3D solid model of the part, a 3D strip can be created quickly and easily, and also be communicated clearly throughout the work group using the free SOLIDWORKS eDrawings® viewer before further detailing of the die without time wasted.
3DQuickForm is a powerful SOLIDWORKS© add-in application for inverse forming simulation. High speed, accuracy, and full associativity with SOLIDWORKS© data are taken into consideration to make 3DQuickForm a production design tool for die designers.
3DQuickMold is a professional plastic mold design solution that solves very complicated plastic mold design problems. 3DQuickMold® follows the industrial practices and use the same workflow in mold shops. The ease of use and powerful mold design capabilities have been verified by the early users of 3DQuickMold®.
Developed on SOLIDWORKS® technology, 3DQuickStrip® imports different types of 3D data into the system for the unfolding, bending and cutting operations. Fully auto or manual mode can be chosen in the powerful unfold operation. Advanced feature recognition can handle complex sheet metal features.
