Quickly create wheel arches using a Dynamo sample file, saving you time when building a new vehicle concept model.
Modify components such as CVs, hulls, and edges. Transform entities without moving off the selected plane.
New options allow for better control over how subdivision CVs align to curves and surface boundaries.
A visual clipping plane tool now exists in Alias Concept for quick visual sectioning and clip of geometry.
A supersampling option increases the anti-alias quality by a factor of 4, resulting in a quality of up to 64x.
The ability to replace shaders by name when you import Alias supported geometry with shader assignments.
An immersive conceptual design tool that lets designers explore form in 3D using simple curve and surface tools.
SUBD and Dynamo tutorials and exercises for Alias, including example files and 3 special Alias 2021 scripts.
Subdivision surfaces in Alias integrate the strengths of adaptive subdivision with native NURBS surface technology.
Copy/paste a layer within a folder to be outside or inside of the original folder structure.
Disable the share view option using an environment variable.
Save the file author information under the save information section when saving or exporting a file.
Pick a curve by selecting on a hull or CV; selecting directly on the curve is no longer required for certain tools.
Draw style options for the subdivision surface geometry and control cage manipulator support new SUBD features.
Enhance design reviews with virtual reality. Explore your design to scale using an HMD in VR.
Sketches from Photoshop can be linked to Alias. Changes to sketches are dynamically updated in Alias.
Quickly generate complex repeatable patterns and enable rapid design iterations and exploration.
More easily customize Marking menus with a new selection of styles.
Design on a single Alias model in the cloud. Review, mark up, and collaborate via the web and on portable devices.
Offset command ensures that offset CV layout quality is maintained, enabling a semi-automated, time-saving workflow.
Fly to a point of interest immediately; enable immediate navigation to a point in the design.
Manipulate Canvas layers like any other geometry type—scale, snap, and pivot images in real time.
Multithreading implemented for File I/O for Alias reduces File Open and Save times by an order of 3.
