Bring your Sketches to Life
Utilizing Evolve, you can generate conceptual 3D models that serve as a base for further design all from a sketch. Reduce your time-to-market with a streamlined real-time rendering in the concepting phase of your process.solidThinking Evolve enables you to capture an initial sketch, explore styling alternatives, and visualize products with realistic renderings generated in real time. Evolve provides organic surface modeling and parametric control, with NURBS-based surfaces and solids and a unique ConstructionTree history feature. It frees designers from the constraints of engineering-oriented CAD tools, while allowing the export of digital models required by others in the product development process.
NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines) method of geometry definition offers, flexibility and precision to your design.
Parametric modeling avoids the bottleneck of rework and labor used to change direct modeling methods.
ConstructionTree, a unique change history process, allows a graphical view of objects and actions that built your model.
Immediate feedback is provided with Evolve's integrated progressive rendering - complete with a fast preview of lighting and materials.
Evolve evaluates model quality with advanced analysis tools to calculate area, volume, length, and curvature.
Fast translators included in Evolve allow for simplified data exchange with CAD tools and other systems.
