About solidThinking suite

solidThinking Evolve is a 3D hybrid modeling and rendering solution designed for small to large organizations in fashion, environment, transportation, packaging, and consumer goods industries. Key features include organic surface modeling, data visualization, image capture, and file import/export.

solidThinking Evolve's interface provides multiple perspective views, letting designers check surface quality, shadows, and volume of products. Users can evaluate existing materials and create multiple 3D photo-realistic illustrations in real-time via a built-in render tool. With the NURBS-based modeling technique, planners can also represent the inner curves and surfaces of products within a compact geometrical form.

solidThinking Evolve comes with polygonal and solid modeling tools, which allow professionals to create freeform shapes and refine edges with technical precision. The ConstructionTree module allows users to access image history, conduct edits and update final models. The solution helps supervisors receive real-time alerts on modifications performed on any parameter or surface. Animations can be applied to presentations for displaying complex forms and ideas to buyers.

Using it within my organization has helped me to compare this software with others and thus make the most of it as well as making the classes dynamic and with demonstrations of operation when performing the simulations.

Pros

The efficiency when designing and how fast this product generates the mechanical parts. It has important new features of solidThinking Inspire 2014 include geometry simplification tools, linear static analysis, concentrated dough pieces and smoothing options, as well as the ability to export solid geometry. this allows design engineers, product designers and architects to create and research structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily, reducing cost, development time, material consumption and product weight.

Cons

The little diffusion to the Latin countries that makes it little known, besides the cost which is high for the conditions of these countries, should be promoted with a series of plans accessible to the end user, it is important to emphasize that due to being a high software level requires a high capacity ram memory inside the pc, you should also be considered the option of generating modules that require less memory for its operation.

Easy to optimize

Reviewed on 2019/04/19

Pros

I really like the user friendly interface, I used to optimize stamping products. Its so easy and lot of source to learn the program. While it might be harder to give constraints on another programs, it's so easy and compact.

Cons

Can't have a detailed mesh in comparison with other topology optimization Programs.

This software is one i implemented during my part time lectures in a local university. The students loved it

Pros

One can create 3 dimensional images from 2 dimensional images as references, and with a wide variety of online video tutorials and literature, this is possible even for newbies.

Cons

The software is quite heavy on computers, and can slow down processes to the point of hanging, i suggest an increase in RAM.
