Parametric surface and solid modeller

Paul Boughton

Evoqe is releasing Solidthinking 7.0, which benefits from numerous core-level enhancements, improved tools, and additional features. It will ship simultaneously for Windows and Mac OS X Universal.

Solidthinking 7.0 is the suite of fully parametric, Class A surface and solid modelling environments, with built-in photorealistic rendering and animation, for industrial designers, style centres, and demanding CG artists. Accurate and intuitive Nurbs curve, surface and solid tools are accessible to both Windows and Mac OS X users through a familiar and interactive interface.

Innovations and Enhancements in Solidthinking 7.0 include: a new rQ application for batch rendering of large sequences of images or animations; a core-level modelling kernel update that provides increased accuracy, reliability and speed for modelling operations; a new materials library with over 180 new real-world materials for visualisation and rendering; Mac OS X Universal support for PowerPC and Intel-based Macintosh computers; enhancements to many tools to provide additional options and flexibility in critical modelling situations; and improved file I/O modules for increased compatibility with external applications.

Both Solidthinking Design 7.0 and Solidthinking Vantage 7.0 are built around what is claimed to be the most interactive and powerful construction history available today. Objects are quickly and efficiently rebuilt as the user manipulates their source objects or parameters, thereby eliminating repetitive tasks and increasing flexibility. Interactive surface and curve analysis tools provide instant visual feedback for precise and accurate manipulations during the design process.

The innovative and powerful tools in Solidthinking 7.0 are communicated to the user through a fluid and familiar interface, thereby reducing the learning curve and increasing productivity. Solidthinking provides complete design communication through advanced rendering, animation, VR output, and powerful file interchange and CAD interoperability.
