Prepare complex models for manufacture

PowerShape® CAD software combines surface, solid, and mesh modeling to help engineers prepare molds, dies, and other complex parts for manufacture. Ideal for use with PowerMill CAM software.

PowerShape features

  • CAM modeling companion

    Create additional geometry to use inside PowerMill, and get enhanced control of your CNC machinery. (video: 2:25 min.)

  • Repair imported CAD data

    Prepare third-party CAD models for manufacture. Find and repair common faults with ease using automatic wizards. (video: 2:12 min.)

  • Tolerant solid modeling

    Access solid modeling tools designed for real-world manufacturing problems. Quickly make whole model edits on imperfect data. (video: 1:34 min.)

  • Flexible surface modeling

    Produce complex surface geometry using Smart Surfacer. Make precise edits to create the manufacturing surfaces you need. (video: 1:56 min.)

What's new

  • Ribbon interface

    Improved interface and user experience with enriched tooltips. Quickly access commonly used commands and discover unused features.

  • Parametric sketches

    Construct wireframe geometry with user-defined parameters and mathematical equations. Use for improved control of surface and solid modeling.

  • Mesh Doctor

    Use this wizard to automatically identify and fix common faults with imported 3D STL meshes. Combine with powerful mesh modeling tools.

  • Extend primitives

    Extend the edges of multiple primitive surfaces or solids with a single command. Choose to extend dynamically or by a user-defined distance.
