CAD Adds 200 Enhancements

T-Flex Parametric CAD 9 delivers advanced tools for parametric 3D modeling and the 2D design of complex products.

An extended set of surface commands provides tools for modifying surfaces and various local operations on faces in a surface or solid body. Enhanced body tapering tools and geometry analysis features simplify mold design.

The software includes more than 200 customer-requested enhancements. For instance, mating technology supports complex assemblies that can include individual parts and other assemblies with predefined internal mates. User can move components within their degrees of freedom, consider real material properties, and visualize the assembly's behavior. Built-in Express Analysis indicates how T-Flex models behave before they are built. This easy-to-use firstpass stress analysis is tailored for designers and engineers.
