ZW3D CAD/CAM Boosting Mold Making From Quoting to Delivery
April 29, 2014

Guangzhou, China: April 29, 2014 ZW3D, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, today announced that ZW3D 2014, the latest version of its all-in-one CAD/CAM software, will be demonstrated at Intermold trade show, Bangkok, Thailand, from June 19 to June 26, 2014.


ZW3D Mold module, streamlining every step of the mold design process from quotation to the finished product, helps mold markers maintain high standards of quality with greatly shortened delivery times and lowered costs.




Perfect Time Saver for Quotation


Being the initial step to evaluate ROI (return on investment), quotation really troubles mold makers with low efficiency of data translation and repair. For conversion of data, ZW3D offers powerful file translator to cooperate seamlessly with various mainstream CAD platforms, 2D or 3D ones. For data repair, ZW3D can dramatically simplify it with Solid-Surface Hybrid Modeling technology, which supports accurate estimates of imported non-perfect models, greatly saving quotation 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, highly flexible mold base configuration options, powerful mold-specific design functions, and automated BOM creation, ZW3D assists engineers to get the entire design done in a single and streamlined environment, allowing most complex jobs done at unprecedented speed.


Mold designing processes are composed of model repairing, core and cavity splitting, mold base design and electrode design etc. In ZW3D, a host of embedded mold capabilities can benefit designers in 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 in a complete hybrid environment, engineers can skip model healing process and jump directly to split non-solid models in ZW3D.




  • Faster Core & Cavity Splitting – Quick splitting of the most complex 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 the mold design process, standardization is the key to eliminated human errors and reduced cost, which can be realized easily in ZW3D with built-in MoldBase and customizable standards parts. Days 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 allows engineers to deal with electrodes, which can be machined with user-defined 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.
