AutoSolids Version 4.0 Released4.0 further increases AutoSolids' solid modeling capabilities (March 03, 2006)
AutoSolids, Inc.(ASI) has announced the release of Version 4.0 of it's AutoSolids and AutoSolids EXPRESS products. Both products add parametric 3D solid modeling, advanced visualization, and 3D-to-2D automation tools to AutoCAD and AutoCAD based products. AutoSolids and AutoSolids EXPRESS are available now for AutoCAD versions 14.01 thru 2006 and all versions of Mechanical Desktop and Architectural Desktop.
Since it's introduction in 2000, AutoSolids has increased the 3D productivity of thousands of AutoCAD users with advanced solid modeling, viewing, and 3D-to-2D automation tools. Version 4.0 further increases AutoSolids' solid modeling capabilities with new shelling and offset tools and the ability to punch and trim 3D solids with open or closed 2D entities. The rich 3D feature set of AutoSolids Version 4.0 turns AutoCAD into a powerful, comprehensive 2D/3D system.
AutoSolids' constraint-free parametric solid modeling system maintains the complete construction history of all solids. By working without constraints, AutoSolids creates 3D models in a fraction of the time required with traditional constraint-based systems. AutoSolids' parametric editing tools allow solids to be easily and completely changed in the same way they were created. Extrusion heights are easily changed, sweep paths and profiles are easily reshaped, boolean operations are easily undone and more. The new features of Version 4.0 are completely integrated with this system. Shelled solids are easily unshelled, trimmed solids are easily untrimmed, and punching profiles are easily reshaped to change the solid.
AutoSolids' "RealView" toolset greatly improves the realtime display of 3D solids, and the "QuickDraw" feature instantly creates multi-view 2D geometry from 3D solids for fast, accurate detail drawings. Parametric solid arrays, direct extrusion of text into solids, and other utility features greatly reduce design time. AutoSolids' 3D tools combine with AutoCAD's industry-leading 2D capabilities to create a single integrated 2D/3D system that maintains native .dwg format at all times.
Version 4.0 is a free update for existing AutoSolids customers; all AutoSolids purchases include free lifetime version upgrades with NO maintenance or subscription fees. New single-user licenses of AutoSolids are available for $495; new licenses of AutoSolids EXPRESS are available for $295. AutoSolids and AutoSolids EXPRESS are available now for AutoCAD versions 14.01 thru 2006 and all versions of Mechanical Desktop and Architectural Desktop.
Time-unlimited demonstration versions of AutoSolids, online ordering, video demonstrations of AutoSolids' major features, and additional product information are available at http://www.autosolids.com.
