Serving the South African Manufacturing industry Software Development (Pty) Ltd - CAD / CAM / CAE / Wireless CNC communication experts Advanced CADCAM and Wireless CNC communication for the Manufacturing industry VISI Modelling A True Hybrid Modelling System VISI Modelling is the foundation of all VISI products and provides a robust and powerful solid and surface modelling system based around the industry standard Parasolid kernel. Combined with Vero’s surface technology, model analysis and 2D design, VISI-Modelling offers complete flexibility to construct, edit or repair the most complex 3D data. Extensive range of CAD interfaces. * Parasolid, IGES, DXF, DWG, STL and VDA. * STEP, Solid Works and Solid Edge. * CATIA v4 & v5, Pro-E, UG and ACIS. True hybrid modelling * Work with solid, surface, wireframe or combinations. * Not limited to prismatic or basic geometry. * Solid functions unite, subtract, extrude. * Solid funcions revolve, sweep, cavity, intersect and hollow. Surface technology * Free-form geometry creation. * Surfaces for ruled, lofted, drive and sweep. * Surfaces for n-sided patch, drape and tangent. * Surfaces for draft, revolved and piped surfaces. * Easy heal imported geometry. * Construct the most complex 3D data. Surface repair and editing * Automatically heal gaps in surface models. * Close surface models to solid body. * Switch between solid and surface technology. * Unlimited freedom. * Work easily with complex CAD data. Powerful blending * Constant radius, variable radius and disc. * Hyperbolic and elliptical blends. * Create blends on solid / surface models. * Propagated along tangent edges. * Blend between complex surfaces. Full range of 3D curves and split line curves * Create split line curves. * Construct 3D curves iso-parametric and cross sections. * Helix, ellipse, spiral and hyperbolic curves. * Mechanical curves. * Advanced curve editing. * Force tangency / periodicity and move control points. * Join or extend curves. * Simplify curves for quality surface construction. Ease of use * Simple menu and icon commands. * Context sensitive on line help. * Dynamic rotation, zoom and pan. * Programmable function keys and mouse buttons. * Unlimited undo and redo operations. * Multi layer and multi origin control. * User definable colour pallets and line styles. * Create and work with very complex designs. * All data stored in a single file. * Reduce the burden of data management. * Super fast rendering, texture mapping. * Dynamic sectioning. * Handle large assemblies easily. Automatic creation of 2D views * 2D drawings directly from the 3D model. * Fully editable 2D and isometric sections views. * Automatic dimensioning and hole type and position tables. * Created details from any component in the assembly. * Displayed mixture of 3D rendered and 2D drawings. * Changing 3D model updates 2D views. * Changing 3D model updates fully associative dimensions. * Dedicated assembly management tools. * B.O.M. creation. Manufacturing modules * VISI applications run in one environment. * Modules for mould tool and progressive die design. * Machine plates using feature recognition. * Drilled hole features. * 2D milling routines. * Machining 3D forms. * Create toolpaths directly on the model. * 5 axis toolpaths. * Same interface from design to manufacture.
