ZW3D Pushes the Limits of 3D Printing with Lower Design Complexity

Guangzhou, China, May 28, 2013 -- 3D printing is growing in popularity in recent years, particularly in the mass customization fields. Coupled with  ZW3D, customers can turn their unique ideas, such as a case for a smart phone, custom toys, jewelries or whatever is needed, into products. As it opens up opportunities for individuals, more people will gain access to this exciting and fancy printing technology. 

Professional Model Design Restricting Development of 3D Printing

With a history of more than a decade, 3D printing has not been widely used yet, which may be attributed to the high prices of 3D printers and printing materials. However, ZW3D believes that the complex usage of 3D design software is another factor making 3D printing difficult to be popularized. “3D printing requires high-level of design proficiency and professional knowledge, and therefore frustrates most of the first-time users,” said Colin Lin, Vice Director of ZW3D Overseas Business. “While ZW3D allows beginners to  master 3D design in hours and subsequently print out their designs. By making design process much easier, we hope more and more people can turn their designs into reality.” 

Easily Turn Your Concept into Reality in Hours

The high requirements on 3D design keep most people away from 3D printing. With easy-to-learn functions and a simplified workflow, ZW3D has made progress in reducing design complexity since its initial stage. The friendly ribbon interface allows users to work in a more familiar environment, and even the first-time users can grasp and use ZW3D by mouse over icons to get detailed explanations. They can also enjoy the flexible model modification by “Drag & Drop”. When the designs are completed with greater ease, people only need to wait for their works to be produced by a 3D printer in a few hours.

Easily to learn by putting the mouse over the icons

In  ZW3D 2013, 3D model design has been optimized in a more effective way. Shell operation supports both solid and surface modeling, realizing faster transformation to solid model. Designers can directly apply Boolean operation to the solid and the surface to improve modeling efficiency. It eliminates the barriers for beginners, so that they can focus on design without worrying whether the geometry is solid or surface.

ZW3D Lite Helps Save Your Budget in 3D Printing

In a bid to increase the accessibility of 3D printing,  ZW3D Lite, a simpler and smarter version of ZW3D 2013, provides a more affordable approach to 3D printing. Only with $1,000, designers can directly open, edit and save 3D models from Catia, Inventor, Solidworks and more. This strong format support is rarely available in other similar products.
