ASCON Group, developer and vendor of professional CAD/AEC/PLM solutions, has announced the release of its new, improved and even more powerful and easy-learning version of professional 3D and 2D software solution for Mechanical CAD – KOMPAS-3D V11.
This new release suggests novelties to increase efficiency, quality and speed of designing process, to make fast and simple familiarization with the software, to provide special tools for vertical industries domains, such as steel construction, piping, sheet-metal design. KOMPAS-3D V11 users still get all these powerful abilities at a very reasonable price. We are pleased to share with you brief information about the innovative features and new add-ons in KOMPAS-3D V11.
3D Parametric Modelling and Design Improvements
New features for 3D modeling of parts and assemblies: Mechanical mates in assembly help to simulate movement, Local coordinate in 3D systems considerably increase possibility of part and assembly modelling, Scale for 3D models help change a scale of parts, Different types of assembly loading help increase speed of working with large assemblies more than 10 times. Bend by Sketch, Part to assembly and Assembly to part transformation and many others increase efficiency and speed of 3D modelling process.
Trial and Demo mode protection update
Since now all the interested are able to get 30-Days full-functioning Trial version of KOMPAS-3D absolutely for FREE.
A capability is introduced for working with the solution and its components in 30 days period for familiarization and trying in use all the wide range of features of KOMPAS solutions.
The add-on is included in the basic package of KOMPAS-3D V11. The library is intended to automate the design of dust, gas and air flues, pipelines and similar parts of sheet material. This add-on automates labour-consuming calculations and constructions and considerably increases the speed of creation of working drawing for blanks of such parts.
Standard Parts library
The database supplied with KOMPAS-3D V11 and contains fasteners according to DIN and ISO standards.
Steel structures 3D
The library is also included in the delivery package. It is intended for automation of design process of metal constructions from metal rolling profiles.
Context bar – it contains buttons of the frequently used editing commands and is displayed on the screen at selecting objects of the document and considerably increase speed of working with KOMPAS-3D.
New Icon Design – contains different sizes of icons, which able to supply High resolution Displays supporting. Extended command toolbars gives more for interface customization.
New abilities for 3D curves and surfaces modeling
The new commands for creating of 3D-lines considerably improve design of complex 3D paths and trajectories.
The Deviation of Surfaces helps to measure the mutual deviation of two faces (or a face and a surface).
Enhancements in import of various CAD formats (SAT, STEP, IGES, Parasolid, STL) etc. Today it is possible to import 3D-models from DXF and DWG in KOMPAS-3D.
New features for working with 2D documents
The Multiline command creates a multiline – geometrical object consisting of several lines that are equidistant to the reference line.
The Cut command is introduced in the Edit menu. It hides the portions of the raster image that are out of closed contour.
Using of Hyperlinks – a capability is introduced for creation of hyperlinks to current document objects, external files, web pages, e-mail addresses. The hyperlink is added to the object of the document as one of properties.
