Product planning

  • Data Import
    • The brand new integrated translator imports from Catia V4/5/6, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor and ACIS.
  • Prominent Healing Capacity
    • Analyze and heal different kinds of topology conditions including cracks, gaps, mismatched vertices and tiny edges.
    • Show information of open edges to help identify even tiny ones.
    • Quickly fill gaps with new surfaces.
  • 3D Annotation
    • Add 3D annotations for the models, including distance, radius and angles.
    • This will always be shown when opening the drawing, which conduces to subsequent communication.
  • Reverse Engineering
    • Work with STL, point cloud and scan data to build surfaces and 3D models.
    • Support 3D printers.

Product design

ZW3D delivers an easy-to-use Ribbon interface and workflow, flexible–efficient 3D design capabilities, and a productive assembly performance. With well-defined sketches, detail parts and assemblies to 2D drawing, ZW3D takes designers from concept design all the way to finished products. Not only can you access quality tools to create smooth surface models and sheet metal parts, but you can also deal with point data or STL data with built-in reverse engineering. ZW3D gives you productive design with ease.

  • Convenient File Management
    The ZW3D file (*.Z3/VX) is a multi-object file. It can hold many different objects: parts, assemblies, 2D drawings and CAM plans as you need. It acts like a folder, making it easier to manage. Also a single-object file is provided to meet different requirements.
  • Smart & Friendly Sketch
    Most product design begins with two-dimensional sketches, which can drive feature geometry. All the tools to draw well-defined sketches are available. Additionally to conventional tools, you have various other useful tools to speed up sketch drawing.
    • Ready-sketch provides many different geometry symbols, helping designers save drawing time.
    • Trace profile delivers a very flexible method to deal with interconnecting sketch geometry, without using the trim operation.
    • Smart dimension & smart constraint help designers quickly generate a well-defined sketch.
    • Sketch doctor helps designers to inquire about connectivity,analyze and solve constraints.
  • Flexible & Efficient 3D Modeling
    ZW3D is different to traditional 3D CAD software tools as it offers an unique product design experience, based on Solid & Surface Feature Hybrid Modeling technology. Combined with parametric modeling and Direct Edit, you can enjoy more efficient design.
    • Based on ZW3D’s unique OverdriveTM kernel, Solid-Surface Hybrid Modeling allows Boolean operations between solid geometry and surface geometry, which makes design more flexible as solids are not required.
    • Parametric modeling gives designers full control to easily edit feature geometry.
    • Direct Edit modeling offers more flexible tools to modify geometry quickly on native or imported models without history regeneration.
    • Provides flexible surface modeling tools to create smooth product models.
    • Many powerful modeling tools deliver more design possibilities, and give designers a constant stream of innovation, such as: Morph , Wrap , and Emboss .
  • Productive Assembly Design
    Easy-to-use assembly capabilities help designers manage assembly and check large assembly design in order to accelerate design process and improve productivity.
    • Easily deal with large assemblies, including Top-Down design and Bottom-Up design.
    • Interference check and dynamic section tools provide clear, visualized interference results to help designers identify errors early.
    • With animation tools, designers can demonstrate the design’s basic operation as they would with a real life product. This can be saved as a AVI video.
  • 2D Sheet
    2D Sheet is directly linked with a 3D model, so updates to the 3D model can be automatically reflected in the 2D sheet. This saves design time and reduces human errors.
    • Automatically create2D associative viewswith projection, sectioning and detailing.
    • Dimensions and Annotations include ANSI, ISO, DIN, JIS and GB standard, as well as support for custom.
    • Generate the Bill of Material, Hole & Electrode tables with auto-ballooning.
    • Easy to customize the Symbol, Hatch pattern and 2D sheet templates.


Any problems that occur in the machining stage will cause great losses, not only economically, but also losses in time. Verifying the structure reasonable, part manufacturability and product assembly before going into production is a very important part. With ZW3D’s flexible and visual verification tools you can detect 3D models during the design process to shorten the product development cycle, reduce development cost, save time and increase productivity.

  • Draft & Thickness Analysis
    For a plastic product design, draft analysis and thickness analysis is very important to ensure that the product structure is reasonable and to determine a product’s mold-ability.
    • Draft angle or thickness information of any position is available by hovering the mouse over the model.
    • Positive draft, negative draft, and need draft will be displayed in different colors.
    • The thickness analysis result provides min and max thickness values.
  • Dynamic Section & Interference Check
    During the assembly design process, the interference check feature and other auxiliary tools help designers verify that the parts and assembly will fit.
    • Use the section feature to visually check the interference between shapes in one part or among components in an assembly.
    • The Interface check feature is used for checking the interference between the components or the assembly, and provides detailed results: number, volume and area of Interference regions.
    • The Drag tool helps designers to check if the components move as intended.
  • Animation Simulation
    Use vivid animation to demonstrate many different kinds of operation of the design, such as: movement, disassembly and assembly. This video is a dynamic product presentation instead of the real product.
    • Verify and simulate assembly movement based on the defined constraints.
    • Exploded view animation to simulate assembly or disassembly process.
    • Save the avi video for viewing by others.
