“SolidThinking is a lovely industrial design tool with a very graphical interface. The company’s tools are NURBS-based, and the software has combined the ability to directly model an object but maintain relationships through a construction tree. As the company says, industrial designers like to make changes, so it offers designers tools that let them try out ideas iteratively without destroying the design intent or, if appropriate, just grab and move features.”
“SolidThinking’s Morphogenesis technology lets users apply some very basic constraints to a rough block and gives it some guidelines as to how much material to save or remove. The software goes to work removing as much material as possible while still maintaining structural integrity. The result is a skeleton that can then be used to develop new ideas.”
CimWorks, solidThinking Spain reseller, is hosting three solidThinking presentations for Spanish industrial designers. The two-hour presentations will be given by CimWorks and solidThinking Product Specialist, Adel Matar.
