nPower Software Releases Power Shell, Power Thicken Tools for SOLIDWORKS
SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, Jul 17, 2020 - nPower Software / IntegrityWare, Inc announces the release of a new Power Shell product and technology for SOLIDWORKS. Power Shell introduces new technology to handle Shelling / Thicken cases that previously failed.
The new technology behind Power Shell solves a common problem with CAD software. For years, CAD users have struggled with Shelling. In most CAD systems, Shelling fails in many common circumstances (see table below for examples). CAD models with small radii, large shell thickness, tight corners, small features, disappearing features, narrowing areas, self intersections and other difficult geometry cause the standard shelling algorithm to fail. The new technology and new approach of Power Shell deal with these difficult geometric configurations so that it can Shell virtually any CAD model with any size of Shell thickness. Instead of spending time trying to modify your models so that the Shell tool can work, why not save valuable time and try the Power Shell tool?
Power Shell can shell out faces, or hollow out the interior of a model; it can offset inward or outward. And the Power Thicken tool can offset and thicken a surface model. These tools can handle extremely complex geometry including difficult organic shapes.
The Power Shell and Power Thicken features are similar to other SOLIDWORKS features (like Shell and Thicken). They show up in the feature history tree and will update in a similar manner.
Power Surfacing is the premier industrial design solution for SOLIDWORKS. With its tight integration inside of SOLIDWORKS, and its rich and powerful feature set, Power Surfacing has become the tool of choice for industrial designers who want to quickly generate beautiful designs that can easily be turned into manufactured solutions.
Power Surfacing RE is the industry leading solution for reverse engineering organic meshes. It provides extremely accurate conversion of even the largest of scanned meshes; it is fast and efficient, creating light weight models out of extremely complex scans. If you need to convert complex, difficult scanned data into SOLIDWORKS geometry, Power Surfacing RE is the ideal solution.
Power Surfacing RE is built on top of the award winning Power Surfacing product. Power Surfacing is a subdivision surface (SubD) based organic modeling tool for SOLIDWORKS. Power Surfacing creates fully compatible SOLIDWORKS surfaces and solids that support all of the powerful SOLIDWORKS commands that you use on native SOLIDWORKS geometry.
About Power Surfacing and Power Surfacing RE
Power Surfacing and Power Surfacing RE are based on IntegrityWare’s SOLIDS++ geometric modeling Kernel, a unique, C# based, powerful hybrid modeling system that supports Solids, Surface and Polygonal modeling. nPower modeling tools provide the highest order of surfacing, solids modeling, analysis, and tessellation technologies. In addition, Power Surfacing and Power Surfacing RE utilize the SubD-NURBS library product, which provides accurate conversion between SubD geometry and NURBS geometry.
Availability and Pricing
The new Power Shell product includes both the Power Shell and Power Thicken tools; this special tool combination can be purchased for $495 on the nPower web store (www.nPowerSoftware.com/store.htm), or through certified nPower Software resellers throughout the world. The Power Shell and Power Thicken tools are also included with the 6.1 release of both Power Surfacing and Power Surfacing RE.
