Updated Translator-2D Drawing Export
- Batch export drawing sheets by new “Multi-Export”.
- New Text output and Multi-sheet export options are added in PDF export
- New “Export as block for each component” option in DWG export
- New “Exclude sheet format & table” option to remove text font setting for DWG export
- Export OBJ format
- Import/export layer & object name of IGS/STEP file
- Imported graphic data (Such as *.3DXML file from Catia, *.cgr, *.xcgm) can be exported as STL file.
New Options for System Configuration
- New “Maximum entities listed under folder” option
- New “Load link info of reference objects” option
Link information will be automatically loaded when this option is checked.
File opening speed will slow down, especially for big assembly.
- New “Inquire result tolerance” setting
New Options for Equation Manager
- New “Replace Expression” Function
More convenient to replace the variable with a new string, such as other variable/constant
- New filter type “Feature Dimension”
Improvements on Sketch
- Reference dimension can be edited directly when the sketch is not well-defined.
- Sketch symmetric constraint provides direction control.
- “Text” command provides new “Fit Method” option.
New Features of Assembly
- New options are added to the right menu of assembly tree
“Regen All Components” and “Hide Suppressed Components”
- Remove the “Position” node from assembly tree of Config Table
Components position is stored in assembly config as default
- “Assembly Hole” auto select intersected components as the target objects
- “Exploded View Video” provides options to save explosion or collapse process or both.
Upgraded Compare Part
- Direct select the part from external Z3D files (No need opened first)
- Multiple windows show the base part, compared part and the combined result.
- Define the color and transparence
- Generate the compare report
Other Improvements on Modeling
- Hidden sketch feature and hidden component can be pre-highlighted
- “External Part” can directly call Reuse Library
- Auto hide the object list when reading object from Single-object-per-file
- Object visibility can be stored in a custom view.
- New option on “Separate” to control whether separated filed open or not
- A base view can be rotated along with XYZ axes by “Rotate View”
- “Format Printer” supports symbols,such as surface finish and weldment symbol
- Electrode colour can be set on “Electrode” form
- Added fastener lib for built-in Library (ISO, GB)
- 250+ bugs fixed
- ZW3D 2018 SP supports the latest version of KeyShot.
- Only Keyshot7 64 bit is supported, since keyshot7 only provides 64 bit version.
- Click KeyShot icon in ZW3D to update the model from ZW3D to KeyShot.
- Surface feature for QM operation supports Offset normal
Specify different thickness to different surface in the same part
Protect some sharp edges from being damaged
- Change default helical cut’s approach distance to a reasonable value:
- Add two new coolant types: “Air” and “Through”
- Heidenhain 3X post processor supports tool radius compensation function
- Output “Total Time” in CL data
