  • Revolve tool enhancements New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    The Barrel and Helix tools, previously separate tools, are now grouped under a Side Glass surface type as part of the Revolve tool in Alias. Pitch functionality is included in the Revolve options to allow users to create objects like springs and threads.

  • Form Factor included in Freeform Blend tool New

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    In addition to Shape controls, Freeform Blend uses Form Factor controls in fillet-like situations, which makes it easier to match the shape between blends and fillets.

  • Array tool

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Create arrays of objects, linearly or radially, from an original set of objects. This is useful when modeling products such as grills, speakers, and wheels.

  • Duplicate objects around curves

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    The Path Array tool duplicates objects around curves into “stitch patterns.” This function duplicates one or more objects and places the copies at equal distances along one or more curves, producing the stich pattern effect. You can control the spacing, range, position, and orientation of these duplicates.

  • Advanced Skin tool controls

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    In addition to NURBS, Bezier, and explicit control, Proportional Crown raises the midpoint of the surface, providing exceptional flexibility for concept or technical surfacing.
