ZWSOFT today announced the release of ZW3D 2024, the latest version of its all-in-one 3D CAD/CAE/CAM solution. This release is packed with many new features and enhancements that will help users improve efficiency and complete complex tasks with confidence.
Faster and Smoother
ZW3D 2024 comes with a new render engine that improves the processing efficiency of complex models. With this new engine, users can smoothly rotate, scale, or pan multi-solid, large assemblies, and models with complex toolpaths, so they can edit and view models faster.

Pattern is one of the most common-used features in part design. Compared to ZW3D 2023, generating pattern features is now 80% faster in ZW3D 2024. This allows users to complete pattern-related tasks faster and with more ease.
Extended Capabilities in Design and Machining
In addition to efficiency improvement, this version also extends the capabilities of ZW3D.
ZW3D 2024 extends surface modeling capabilities with the addition of Chordal Fillet and Face Fillet. The master layout added to assembly design links all design phases from top to bottom, improving parametric design.

Improvements can be found in the CAM module. In this version, pencil and corner finishing algorithms are optimized to improve recognition accuracy and generate more appropriate toolpaths.
Specialized Solutions for Industrial Equipment
ZW3D offers general-purpose design functions and specialized toolsets for industry-specific solutions. Two new industry-specific modules for structure and harness design have been added in ZW3D 2024, along with an improved piping design module.
The simulation module is also enhanced to optimize product performance in the early design phase and reduce prototype costs. New fatigue and random vibration analysis types have been added to ZW3D 2024.
