Solidthinking, an Altair company, has launched Solidthinking Evolve 9.5, the latest edition of its NURBS-based 3D modelling software for industrial designers. The software has been enhanced with tools to simplify geometry creation and to make editing more intuitive.

Solidthinking Evolve allows industrial designers to develop forms faster using either a Windows PC or Mac. The software captures an initial sketch and then allows exploration of styling alternatives and the visualisation of products with high-quality renderings generated in real time.

It is said to combine the modelling freedom of organic surfaces and the control of parametric solids with a Constructiontree history feature.

Solidthinking also recently announced the release of Solidthinking Inspire 9.5, which allows design engineers, product designers and architects to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily.

Software in detail

Solidthinking Evolve 9.5

  • Evolve 9.5 maintains support to OSX users and adds a 64-bit Windows version that maximises efficiency in managing large files. A 32-bit Windows version is also available.
  • All sweep and blend curve tools provide greater modelling control and an easier workflow.
  • New selection aids such as pre-highlighting, micro-dialogues and direct hull selection simplify geometry creation and make editing more intuitive.
  • The Constructiontree history feature is now more visually refined and robust.
  • Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish are now supported.

Solidthinking Inspire 9.5

  • Inspire 9.5 enhances the traditional structural simulation process by generating a new material layout within a package space using the loads as an input.
  • The software is said to be easy to learn and works with existing CAD tools to help design structural parts right the first time.
