 HOW-TO MOVIES FOR MOLD TOOLS AND MUCH MORE

Hello Everybody


VX Distributors Antares (Italy) have not only produced a fabulous Mold Tool program for VX, Lib3D, they have also created very high quality how-to movies. The movies show Lib3D in action, and also show how to use many of the "standard" VX commands too - some of which you may not even have discovered. Although aimed at the mold tool designer (and every VX mold tool designer should have Lib3D!), the program has many useful features for mechanical/general engineering, such as fastener sizing with auto-cutting of fastener holes. You can also create your own library to work in Lib3D! Lib3D has been defined by designers for designers and totally integrates with the VX GUI. Check it out


Lib3D Basic (currently free for VX Users!) and Lib3D Advanced are available from the Antares Website:


Lib3D


Antares movies are in MS Windows wmv format and can be viewed with the MS Media Player. Even if your work has nothing to do with mold tools, there is much to be learnt from these movies.
