PowerShape® CAD software helps manufacturers import, fix and prepare complex models in readiness for CNC machining. Use PowerShape as a modelling companion to get more from PowerMill CAM software.
Create CAM-specific geometry and use with PowerMill for enhanced control of your CNC machines. (video: 2.25 min.)
Analyse imported CAD models to identify and fix faults that could complicate downstream processes. (video: 2.12 min.)
Convert imported CAD designs into models ready for CAM programming – even if the model is faulty. (video: 1.34 min.)
Produce the most complex geometry using powerful surface creation and manipulation tools. (video: 1.56 min.)
Autodesk Drive(Subscription only)
Save model data to Autodesk Drive, a personal cloud site. Organise data into folders and allow team members to review and collaborate.
Shared views(Subscription only)
Share secure 3D views of your model data with key project stakeholders. Use a browser to view anywhere, any time on cloud-connected devices.
Improved interface and user experience with enriched tooltips. Quickly access commonly used commands and discover unused features.
Sketch with parameters
Use parameters and mathematical expressions to construct 2D sketches and solid models.
Extend the edges of multiple primitive surfaces or solids with a single command. Choose to extend dynamically or by a user-defined distance.
Every CAD support
Import neutral and third-party files from mainstream CAD systems. Import surfaces, solids or meshes into PowerShape Standard, Premium or Ultimate.
Customise the PowerShape interface to add shortcuts to the quick access toolbar and ribbon interface.
Identify additional hole features found in complex models imported without a solid modelling history.
Split models into core and cavity halves, including parting surfaces, sliders and shut-out faces. (video: 2.06 min.)
Use Direct Modelling to make major changes to solid models without the use of a solid history. (video: 2.13 mins)
Automate electrode design for EDM. Add clearance, extensions, holder geometry and spark gaps. (video: 2.12 min.)
Avoid damaging cutting tools by preventing them from accessing slots that will be produced with EDM. (video: 1.27 min.)
Use built-in catalogues to complete the mould-base design. Add sliding cores, lifters, mould locks and cooling circuits.
Combine Direct Modelling tools with the PowerShape electrode wizard to create complex electrodes with vector burning.
Burn multiple features with the same electrode. Combine rough and finish forms onto a single electrode for improved productivity.
Connect with PowerMill and apply user-defined machining templates to families of electrodes for automatic CAM programming.
Connect with PowerInspect to validate the size and position of the electrode during CNC machining and subsequent EDM.
Interface with shop-floor hardware to automate the EDM process and avoid human setup errors.
Find and fix common faults seen in imported STL meshes. Remove overlapping regions and fill gaps with tangential triangles. (video: 47 sec.)
Produce a 3D curve representing the outline of STL meshes and use to assist with surface and solid modelling.
(video: 30 sec.)
PowerShape integrates with scanning devices to capture the shape of parts and convert into 3D models. (video: 2.13 mins)
Use reverse engineering tools to convert STL meshes into wireframe, surfaces and solid models. (video 2.23 min.)
Automatically align meshes with other triangle models, surfaces or solids. Get instant feedback on the accuracy of the alignment.
Use morphing to counter the effects of gravity and stress relief on your production parts. Improve yields and reduce quality-related concessions.
Access tools to manipulate large STL meshes. Fix gaps, smooth regions interactively and combine with surface and solid data.
Add logos and badges to your 3D model. Wrap repeating patterns of textures onto entire models or localised regions.
