Unified 3D Modeling
solids, surfaces, direct editing
Overdrive (TM) is a unified 3D modeling kernel developed by CAD visionary Mark Vorwaller of VX Software and industrialized by ZWSoft. Unlike traditional modelers, Overdrive unifies solids, surfaces, and direct-edit modeling into a single modeler enabling flexible, interoperable design. Overdrive meets or exceeds the abilities of high-priced modelers and, as a unified kernel, enables powerful new features, applications, and benefits across 3D CAD/CAM not possible in other solutions.
The World’s Most Flexible 3D Design
With the flexibility to choose and combine solids, surfaces, and direct-editing techniques, designers are free to select the best approaches and realize shapes and products simply not possible before. Additional design tools and applications include parametric modeling, feature-based design, 3D smart-sketching tools, spec-driven optimization, a full verification suite, and design applications for assembly, mold, sheet-metal, and weldments.
Best-in-Class Manufacturing for SMBs
For manufacturing, ZW3D’s total solution extends to part healing, 2D & BOM generation, CAM automation, machining sequencing & analysis tools, and CNC code generation (STL/NURBS) for turning, drilling & milling (2-5 axis) machines.All manufacturers can now be fully 3D-enabled and empowered to realize compelling and sustaining business benefits. Suppliers and shops can speed delivery times, enhance customer collaboration, advance their manufacturing portfolios, increase quality and yield, improve productivity, streamline their processes, and take full advantage of the latest machine technologies and features.
ZW3D’s read/write data backplane supports the formats of all popular CAD/CAM tools, machines, and industry standards.
