Applied 3D Science Delivers 3D CAD Solid Modeling for $349ParaLogix version 2.03 comes in two versions (December 06, 2001)
ParaLogix Level One is ideal for anyone who needs to create modest-sized assemblies or detailed drawings, including professional designers, machinists, and hobbyists. It can be used for a wide range of applications, including woodworking, mechanical design, architectural structures, video game content and much more.
Paralogix Level 2 is an industrial-strength mid-range solid modeling tool for mechanical design and manufacturing applications.
"Don't be fooled by the price -- ParaLogix is one serious CAD system. Up until now, mid-range solid modelers were priced out of reach for many who could benefit with them, such as small shops and serious hobbyists. For the price of a good-quality router, we deliver affordable, powerful solid modeling capability that offers substantially the same features as programs costing $4,000 and more. stated Steve Mastrangelo, President and CEO for A3DS.
ParaLogix Level One is a full-featured, procedural, parametric, solid modeling CAD system based on the Parasolid(R) kernel from Unigraphics Solutions (NYSE: UGS), Paralogix is packed with powerful features, comparable with the current crop of recognized brands, plus many unique capabilities. ParaLogix Level One contains all the functionality of Level Two, except for a maximum of fifty procedures allowed inside an assembly file and three sheets inside a detail drawing file.
Highlights of Paralogix Level Two include:
-- Intelligent 2D sketching tools, including extracted edges of existing components to create new ones.
-- Full-featured Solid modeling, including Extrusions, Revolves, Sweeps (including a router mode), and Lofting.
-- Also Fillets and Chamfers, Drafts, Shelling, Mirroring (either for a symmetrical part or two bookend-matching parts), Scaling, Offsets, Primitives and more
-- Since you are always working in the assembly we provide unique tools for using existing parts. For example, use the "NEXT FACE" option to automatically terminate an extrusion when it reaches the face of another part. This feature is valuable for a range of applications, from creating cabinets (woodworking) to developing electrodes (moldmakers).
-- Associative Detail Drafting Application
-- Data I/O for IGES and Parasolid Transmit, STL output (polygons)
-- 1,000s of pages of context-sensitive On-line Help and Tutorials
-- COM-based Advanced Programming Interface (API)
Surfware (Westlake Village, CA) and Pathtrace Ltd. (Reading, England), also market ParaLogix-based products, such as SURFCAM Solids and EdgeCAM Part Modeler.
