ASCON Group, a leading developer of high-performance CAD/AEC/PLM software systems, is pleased to release KOMPAS-3D V14. This professional computer-aided design system for mechanical engineers is distinguished by its powerful features for 3D and 2D design processes, along with a user-friendly interface, easy to learn functions, and flexible collaboration with third-party software – all of which are enhanced by its reasonable price.
The new release of KOMPAS-3D features more than 100 enhancements to increase the productivity of users. V14 does this through faster operations, improved usability, and simplified product development. The result is fewer errors made during the design-to-product development process.
ASCON is excited to announce the highlights of KOMPAS-3D V14:
KOMPAS-3D V14 allows users to directly edit models in variation mode using geometrical and dimensional constraints. Direct variation modeling makes it possible to modify 3D models without construction history, including ones imported from other CAD systems. This new form of easy and flexible editing means that users can work in KOMPAS-3D with – or without – history, as they prefer.
KOMPAS-3D R14 now displays linear and angular values of numeric parameters on the screen as users create and edit elements. To change the value of a parameter, users simply edit the value of the dimension.
KOMPAS-3D R14 adds the ability to store all revisions in the model. This means users can now work with all versions the model underwent. Revisions are stored in the new Versions tab of the Design Tree and in the Document Manager.
KOMPAS-3D R14 now allows users to recalculate the geometry of models using the tolerance field. This means that users can change models using defined tolerances, such as upper or lower limits, middle of the tolerance range, or with a factor.
KOMPAS-3D R14 enhances arrays with linked tables to make them more flexible. In all arrays, users can now create tables of editable variables that change values in array instances. The values in the table create different sizes of elements in an array.
KOMPAS-3D R14 adds commands to create a rich variety of hole types:
KOMPAS-3D R14 expands its value through the addition these feature-filled add-ons:
