Mechanical Features

Assemble freely using the power of 3D Direct Modeling. Design parameterizable parts, including sheet metal. Create assemblies using the library of 30,000+ parametric parts. Generate isometric, section, exploded views, and BOMs, all with automated annotation.

Multi-parametric 3D animations

The Animation Editor panel is designed to create complex 3D animations, where every scene can contain multiple parallel actions controlled by different parameters.

Hem feature

The new hem feature allows you to model a hemming metalworking process.

Tab-and-slot features

The tab-and-slot feature simplifies the assembly of your sheet metal products by connecting sheet metal flanges.

Contour to flange

The new SMFLANGECONTOUR command allows you to create new flanges from arbitrary 2D contours and automatically connect them to your sheet metal part.
