  3. 3. 1 Update List of ZW3D 2013 SP Some significant new features are added in ZW3D 2013 SP. And more than 200 problems are fixed. Following are highlights of this new version: • New ZW3D 64bit version • Updated Translator • Simplified import & export workflow • Much-improved data exchange • New “Pick from List” command to help to select obscured objects. • Modeling improvements, including Loft, Wrap, and Rib feature pattern, and so on. • Drafting improvements, especially the accuracy of the projection. • New and improved CAM features: New Nesting operation, Trapezoid thread type, Run-out extended tool path, improved minimum tool-length calculation, and so on. 1 Basic Function 1.1 ZW3D 64bit version ZW3D 2013 x64(64-bit) is coming. Install the ZW3D x64 on the computer running 64-bit operation system to maximize the performances. 64-bit operating systems can handle large amounts of memory—typically 4GB of random access memory (RAM) or more efficiently than 32-bit operating systems. The speed of reading data is faster. Modeling, assembly and tool-path calculation are more efficient. (Note: The previous version (< 2013 SP) can’t read the Z3 file saved in ZW3D 2013 SP x64.)
  4. 4. 2 1.2 File management 1) Made sure that the symbols of the diameter, degree and arc length will be display correctly in multi-language version. 2) Moved “New Assembly Mode” into “Configuration” form. 3) “Send…” supports compressing. 1.3 New pick feature New “Pick from List” function to help users to select obscured objects. It is available from the right menu.  Features are list in the type.  Turn on Direct Edit option, feature objects are excluded in the list.  The part in the sub-assembly can be selected. 1.4 Improved Print 1) New display effects of Print/Plot through OSR (Off screen rendering). 2) Fixed the lost objects of plot preview. 3) Fixed the sheet background box to not be printed. 1.5 Other Improvements 1) More commands support to be operated transparently. All the inquire commands and show/hide commands can be operated when doing other operations. 2) “Analyze faces” and “Continuity error” commands are available in Lite version.
  5. 5. 3 3) Fixed some crash problems to continue to improve stability.  Fixed the crash error of creating break section view on part with “Do not section”  Fixed the crash error when opening a file such as .jpg or .bmp  Fixed the crash during echo in Drag command caused by array index overflow  Fixed the crash when emboss with a resolution of 0.01  Fixed a crash during feature renaming 4) Improved compatibility with low-end Intel graphic cards. 5) Add a new “Performance Option” in Visual Manager. 6) Restored the display of the edge with individual attribute under wireframe. 7) The freeze color of out-of-scope parts can inherit their original color. 8) Fixed the lost layer display info of customized view. 9) New “Custom” option of color widget of “Face Attribute” command. 10) Fixed the residual highlight after canceling “Entity Info”.
  6. 6. 4 2 Translator 2.1 Simplified workflow Simplified workflow is fit for users’ habit and easier to transfer different formats during import or export files. 2.2 New loop projection logic to improve import quality This new loop projection logic helps to decrease open edges of imported models. Test result shows that more than 30% models get better quality. Take a parasolid file for example, see the image below. In ZW3D 2012 SP2, there are more than 80 open edges and some reversed surfaces. In ZW3D 2013 SP, there are only 14 open edges and no reversed surface. ZW3D 2012 SP2 ZW3D 2013 SP 2.3 Adjusted the UV space of small faces This improvement not only improves the display of imported model, but also reduces the number of reversed surface.
  7. 7. 5 ZW3D 2012 SP2 ZW3D 2013 SP 2.4 Optimized Parasolid 1) Update parasolid format to V25.1. 2) Made sure that primitive entities are imported or exported as primitive for Parasolid format. Based on this improvement, many imported problems are fixed to obtain better model quality. Origin ZW3D 2013 ZW3D 2013 SP 2.5 Improved STEP 1) Fixed the import issue of the torus primitive surface with MinR>MaxR.
  8. 8. 6 ZW3D 2013 ZW3D 2013 SP 2) Fixed the component misplacing of the step import. ZW3D 2013 ZW3D 2013 SP 3) Fixed the index duplication error when exporting an assembly with components instancing from different files. 4) Fixed the shape duplication on the import of a specific step file. 5) Fixed the display abnormal after importing a specific file. 2.6 Improved DWG &PDF 1) Fixed the location shift error of the Title Block after DWG export.
