Partmaker Modeling 2013 is now available from Delcam. The 3D CAD-for-CAM application enables users to create 3D solid models from scratch, as well as to repair and modify 3D engineering data of any origin.

A key productivity enhancement in the 2013 release of Partmaker Modeling is the ability to rewind the solid history tree of a model to any position using a graphical slider.

Edits can then be made, either by applying the Solid Doctor to repair problematic data or by using the full range of direct modelling tools within the application, without using the history of the model.

Once the required edits have been completed, the rewind point can be moved or deleted; the complete solid history is then rebuilt automatically.

Further enhancements

  • Command input box is now more boldly featured in the user interface
  • New work planes can be more easily snapped to existing solid faces
  • Solid features can be grouped
  • Clicking the right mouse button now has the same effect as pressing ‘apply’ or ‘ok’ on all forms
  • There is a more flexible replace-face option
  • Improved power and flexibility of chamfering in both 2D and 3D is offered
  • Solid Doctor has the ability to relax or tighten linking tolerances on specific edges
  • Software includes a ‘nesting’ functionality for automatic nesting of 2D shapes
