  ZW3D is cost-effective CAD/CAM software for 3D modeling, mold design, and machining, which takes engineers from concept to finished product in one easy-to-use, single collaborative environment. Supported by its Show-n-Tell™ built-in learning system, ZW3D includes data exchange to allow efficient reuse and sharing of designs, hybrid modeling with its unique Overdrive™ kernel, mold and die design with cavity preparation tools and component libraries, and intelligent, adaptive CNC machining from 2-axis through to 5-axis.


Powerful Data Exchange
  • Directly read many 3D CAD software formats, such as NX, SolidWorks, CATIA, Creo, and Inventor.
  • Support 3D exchange standards, including DWG, STEP, IGES, ACIS, DXF, Parasolid, SAT, and STL.
  • Export models in PDF and raster images.
Productive Hybrid Modeling with Direct Edit
  • Seamlessly work with 3D solid, surface, and wireframe models.
  • Enjoy design flexibility with hybrid modeling.
  • Quickly and easily edit all imported geometry through direct edit.
  • Generate smooth surfaces with freeform surfacing and dynamic shape morphing.
Flexible Assembly Design
  • Deal easily with large assemblies using ZW3D Burst™ technology.
  • Validate and animate assemblies with built-in motion simulation.
  • Simplify design work with a large amount of standard parts from PartSolutions™ library.
Fast 2D Sheet Production
  • Quickly lay out drawing views, add dimensions, and generate BOM tables.
  • Instantly create associative sections and detail views.
  • Access built-in translators for leading CAD formats.
Whole-process Mold Design
  • Split any 3D model, not just solid models.
  • Rapidly create parting lines and faces, cores, and cavities using a variety of flexible methods.
  • Employ many kinds of standard mold bases, such as DME, HASCO, LKM, and MISUM.
  • Speed up preparation time through multiple electrode extraction.

Efficient 2-5X Milling and Turning
  • Increase machining efficiency with integrated CAD.
  • Dramatically reduce programming time through automatic hole tactics.
  • Generate powerful milling functions with 2-axis to 5-axis machines.
  • Improve productivity by 30% through QuickMill™ technology's efficient roughing, rest-roughing, and quality of milled surfaces.
  • Employ the new turning module.
