Download nPower PowerSurfacing RE v2.00.9465 for SolidWorks 2012-2015
nPower Software announces the new release of revolutionary product Power Surfacing - is an industrial design add-in product for SolidWorks 3D design software that significantly improves the design process for modeling organic, free form surfaces in SolidWorks.
Power Surfacing makes it easy and fun to design complex free form, aesthetically pleasing "Class A" surfaces in SolidWorks. Creating and manipulating Power Surfacing parts is as simple as modeling with clay. Power Surfacing allows great flexibility and productivity in designing those difficult surfaces by pushing and pulling on the faces, edges or vertices of the part. When a shape is designed with Power Surfacing it is a single unified object, which can easily be modified in both subtle and significant ways without pulling apart the resulting NURBS surfaces. Once converted into a native SolidWorks part, those Sub-D models are treated just as if they had been created with traditional SolidWorks tools. Thus SolidWorks features like Booleans, fillets, shells, etc. can be applied to the parts just as if the parts had been modeled with typical SolidWorks tools. Design changes are a breeze with Power Surfacing. After applying SolidWorks features, Power Surfacing users can go back to the original Sub-D form and modify the surface shape and downstream features will be reapplied.
Power Surfacing is also an excellent bridge between Sub-D modeling products like modo and SolidWorks. Power Surfacing can quickly and accurately convert virtually any Sub-D model (even Sub-D models that have some triangles) into the precise NURBS representation that is standard for SolidWorks parts. Power Surfacing creates high quality surfaces, which accurately interpolate the vertices of the original Sub-D mesh.
Power Surfacing unites the diverse modeling paradigms of Sub-D (Subdivision Surface) modeling and CAD (NURBS-based) modeling. Neither Sub-D modeling nor NURBS modeling can effectively solve all 3-D design problems. Each has strengths and weaknesses. Sub-D modeling is great at producing and modifying complex freeform / organic shapes with smooth surfaces. NURBS modeling is good at combining shapes via. Boolean and Feature operations as well as refining shapes with operations like filleting, blending and face editing. We see Power Surfacing as a novel and powerful unification piece between these two technologies. Being able to use both modeling paradigms together in the modeling process provides huge productivity advantages in both the design and revision process. Power Surfacing free form design combined with SolidWorks parametric design provides Solidworks users with a ground breaking Industrial Design toolkit.
Power Surfacing is based on IntegrityWare's SOLIDS++ geometric modeling Kernel, a unique and powerful hybrid modeling system that supports Solids, Surface and Polygonal modeling. nPower modeling tools (Power NURBS, Solids, Translators) provide the highest order of surfacing, solids modeling, analysis, and tessellation technologies. In addition, Power Surfacing utilizes the new SubD-NURBS library product, which provides accurate conversion between Sub-D geometry and NURBS geometry.
Engineers, designers, architects, and artists from top companies around the world like Toyota, Boeing, Microsoft, Disney, SEGA, Blizzard Entertainment, Northrup Grumman, Sony, Honda, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Whirlpool, Blur Studio, Fisher Price, Gensler, Harley Davidson, Fox Sports, Caterpillar, Johnson & Johnson, Philips, BAE Systems, SolidWorks, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, HDR, Hewlett Packard and Cannon Equipment are optimizing their design throughput with nPower Software.
