Often when designers use inexpensive low-end CAD/CAM software, they soon face design challenges that require more computing horsepower. And if they can’t find a solution within the same product line, users must buy another, more expensive product and learn the new interface. VX Corp. (Melbourne, FL) believes it can offer the solution in its new VX Innovator product, designed to put high-end CAD/CAM within reach from learning, scalability, and cost standpoints. Preloaded with tutorials, Innovator software can be upgraded to any level of CAD/CAM, including full design, mold and die, and manufacturing.
The modeling tools work seamlessly with surface and solid geometry, and can work with poor geometry, offering healing and surface editing tools to work with nonsolid geometry. Innovator offers an entire suite of detailing and layout tools for communicating design concepts and quoting, and can style models with complex sweeps, lofts, and domes. Popular assembly tools for top-down and bottom-up design help to ensure assembly part fit and range of motion, and any needed features not included in this base product can be purchased in other VX product bundles.—[email protected]
