GUANGZHOU, China--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZW3D, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, demonstrated the capabilities and benefits of whole-process mold making at Euromold 2014 in Germany from November 25 to 28, 2014.
ZW3D Mold module, streamlining every step of the mold design process from quotation to finished product, helps mold markers maintain high standards of quality with greatly shortened time-to-market and lowered costs.
Perfect Time-saver for Quotation
When preparing quotation, mold makers are really troubled by the low efficiency of data translation and repair. For data conversion, ZW3D offers powerful file translator to cooperate seamlessly with various mainstream CAD platforms, either 2D or 3D ones, while ZW3D can also dramatically simplify data repair with Solid-Surface Hybrid Modeling technology, which supports accurate estimates of imported non-perfect models, greatly saving time and making it easy-to-use even for non-professionals.
Reliable Booster for Streamlined Process of Mold Design
Featured with built-in file translator, user-defined mold base, and automatically-generated BOM, ZW3D assists engineers to get the entire design done in a single and streamlined environment, allowing complex jobs done at an unprecedented speed.
Mold design involves model repairing, core and cavity splitting, mold base design and electrode design, etc. In ZW3D, a host of mold capabilities can benefit designers in the following aspects:
- Dispensable Repairing Process -- Thanks to the Solid-Surface Hybrid Modeling technology, making surfacing operations feasible on solids and solid operations viable on surfaces, engineers can skip healing process and jump directly to split non-solid models in ZW3D.
- Faster Core & Cavity Splitting – Quick splitting parts with parting lines or the core-cavity region definition method helps designers improve work efficiency, reduce lead times and win more business opportunities.
- Extendable MoldBase and Standard Parts – To improve mold design process, standardization is the key to eliminated human errors and reduced cost, which can be achieved easily in ZW3D with built-in MoldBase and customizable standards parts. Tons of work can be saved with automated design of the mold base assembly (e.g. DME, Futaba, LKM) and user-defined mechanisms (e.g. sliders, pillars, lifters) from designer’s own library.
- Efficient Electrode Design & 2D Document – Easy-to-use electrode extract tools in ZW3D allow engineers to deal with electrodes, which can be machined with CAM templates, with high quality and considerably shortened time. Moreover, ZW3D can also generate 2D sheets of electrode in batches automatically to reduce development time and eliminate possible human errors.
