Part design, drawing creation and AnyCAD interoperability is all improved.
Sweep a Tool body Along a Path. You can use solid sweep to create complex shapes, simulate toolpaths, or to design timing screws. The tool body is not required to be a revolved or cylindrical body.
The new Unwrap command can flatten faces that cannot be calculated with the Unfold or sheet metal flat pattern commands. For example, to determine a fabric pattern or for flattening stamped objects.
Extrude taper and Loop & Region Detection
When using the taper option with adjacent regions, the operation merges the faces to create a single, unified result.
Identifying and selecting loops and regions is significantly enhanced.
These include relationships enhancement, content center and migration enhancements.
Insert End Cap Command
Use the new Insert End Cap command to close structural frame members. You can set the position, thickness, specify the profile shape, other properties.
