Power Surfacing from nPower Software is a revolutionary SOLIDWORKS add-in that will fundamentally change the way that engineers and designers design parts in SOLIDWORKS. Power Surfacing makes it easy and fun to design complex free form aesthetically pleasing "Class A" surfaces in SOLIDWORKS. No longer will you have to fight with patching a set of trimmed surfaces together to form complex curved shapes; manipulating Power Surfacing parts is as simple as modeling with clay. Power Surfacing allows great flexibility and productivity in designing those difficult surfaces by pushing and pulling on the faces, edges or vertices of the part.

Power Surfacing creates single unified objects which can easily be modified in both subtle and significant ways without pulling apart the resulting NURBS surfaces. Power Surfacing freeform design combined with SOLIDWORKS parametric design provides users with a ground breaking Industrial Design toolkit.

Power Surfacing Features:

New in Version 2.0

  • Connect the Sub-D object to existing SOLIDWORKS curves and surfaces
  • Precise tangential connections with SOLIDWORKS surfaces
  • Parametric updating of Power Surfacing objects
  • Spatial constraining and dimensional shape control
  • Level-of-detail editing
  • Curvature display
  • Usability enhancements

Features

  • Primitive shapes - box, cylinder, torus, etc.
  • Creation from SOLIDWORKS sketches
  • Import existing meshes: Obj or FBX from modo, Maya, etc.
  • Dynamic push-pull editing, constrained editing, soft selection
  • Basic modeling tools: extrude, inset, insert loops, bridge
  • Intermediate tools: mirror, bend, edge weighting, subdivide
  • Advanced modeling tools: extend, edge extrude, insert edge, etc.
  • Conversion to Class A SOLIDWORKS surface or solid bodies
  • Integration with SOLIDWORKS feature tree editing

Benefits

  • Very easy to learn and use compared to traditional surface creation
  • Design changes after initial creation is fast and supports reapplication of SOLIDWORKS features
  • Reduction in design time for complex organic surfaces
  • Drastic reduction in editing time for complex organic surfaces
  • Produces aesthetic surfaces
