Power Surfacing – Freeform/Organic Shape Plugin for SolidWorks

Power Surfacing – Freeform/Organic Shape Plugin for SolidWorks

Power Surfacing makes it easy and fun to design complex free form aesthetically pleasing Class A surfaces in SolidWorks. Power Surfacing is a revolutionary SolidWorks plugin product that will fundamentally change the way that engineers and designers design parts in SolidWorks. No longer will you have to fight with patching a set of trimmed surfaces together to form complex curved shapes; manipulating Power Surfacing parts is as simple as modeling with clay. With the release of Version 2.0 was added parametric dimension driven capabilities to the Power Surfacing freeform objects. You will be able to build your Power Surfacing models directly from exising SolidWorks geometry.

Neither Sub-D (Subdivision Surface) modeling nor NURBS modeling can effectively solve all 3D 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. Boolean and Feature operations as well as refining shapes with operations like filleting, blending and face editing. We really 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. With the ability to connect Power Surface Sub-D objects directly to existing SolidWorks objects and to update the Sub-D to correspond to history tree modifications. Power Surfacing essentially provides dimension driven Sub-D modeling. Power Surfacing freeform design combined with SolidWorks parametric design provides SolidWorks users with a ground breaking Industrial Design toolkit.

Some of the industries supported by Power Surfacing include:

New SW 2016 Support: there is a build to support Solidworks 2016. This build is the new 3.0 version and for now has no new features. Users can download that version here. Please note that only those who have purchased maintenance or an upgrade are eligible to use 3.0 with support for 2016. All users will need a new license to use 3.0 outside of demo mode.
