MegaCAD 2015: More comfort for direct results
Our Oldenburg developers pulled out all the stops for MegaCAD 2015 again. So that you can model now still freer and faster.
With these innovations, MegaCAD leads now more efficiently to the result:
Special menu brings your ideas in the form
Whether long hole, rectangular, banana hole or Keyhole - MegaCAD 2015 saves all forms as "intelligent" polyline. Thus, you can change these forms much easier using drag & drop. The known function dialog with the current values will shown. Also own contours such as rounded rectangles are now available. Create symmetric contours in lightning speed!
Simply add the assemblies with drag & drop
Also assemblies can be added easily in your model: your selection will be represented graphically. So you find the desired item on the first glance. On the contents of your file folder you got quickly access on these tabs.
By the way: You can feed the tabs with your favorites. And if you don't use the dialog to add components, you can hide the window again.
Insert info-texts free
Even easier, you can add 2D and 3D models with informative text. You produce and edit lines of text, blocks of text or RTF texts on the artboard - or as previously on the well-known dialogue.
Keep the track, owing thumbnail
Your collected files now will display you as graphical preview (thumbnail) in the file manager. So keep a clear view even at unclear file names! 3D models will appear in the preview in OpenGL mode, 2D drawings as a line graph.
Advanced Helix brings screws faster on line
A new feature in the base profile makes it easier for you to construct screws. With "basic profile parallel to axes" change radius and gradient of the helix, as desired. The basic profile remains perpendicular to the reference plane over the length of the helix.
Welding Assembly mode: Insert exclusive assemblies and edit
Now you can process 3D objects of exclusively inserted assembly. MegaCAD 2015 saves their changes in the parent PRT file.
While loading the PRT file the affected objects will be restore. They will depicted in the featuretree. In addition, you can link objects of an exclusiv assembly. A helpful tool in the creation of welding assemblies, or Assembly or in the further processing.
Larger threaded database, greater opportunities
Wir haben die neue Thread-Datenbank erheblich erweitert; Es enthält nun viele weitere Datensätze. In addition to the comprehensive selection you now can make also individual adjustments of the terms, in particular for Whitworth pipe threads.
This gives depth: draw directly in the OpenGL rendering
You can draw 2D elements now in the OpenGL Z-buffer. Only points and masking areas are excluded. You simply perform settings via the function "DrawHid".
Create worksheets easier
For exclusive inserted objects you can create worksheets from now on. Set up a worksheet as a 2D drawing, MegaCAD save existing OpenGL views as a bitmap.
Adjust textures directly - without any body surface area
Now you can more easily insert graphics. MegaCAD supports now over 30 pixel-formats, also including the PNG Format.
And the best: for a texture you dont Need 3D or body surfaces any more. You can give images an own supporting level. So you can rotate and position the graphics as desired. All editing from the pixels menu have been updated for this.
PARTsolutions: holistic solutions for individual parts
Individual elements can now easily exchanged and be edited. MegaCAD 2015 allows you to lock the items that you want to Keep. In this way protected elements no longer be exchang by MegaCAD 2015 - even layer and group attributes remain on request unchanged. This way, you can save lots of time.
MegaCAD 2015: Print in a new dimension
With MegaCAD 2015, it is possible to print finished 3D models just by mouse click now. For this an own DLL has been programmed; without additional installation you can start the entire product range of German RepRap of MegaCAD by mouse click. The saving of the 3D model in the neutral format STL and the handing over to the German RepRap printer Software are running transparently in the background.
MegaCAD kinematics - move your models to the success
The MegaCAD kinematics leaves nothing to be desired. Three new drive types are now available:
- parallel drive
- angled drive
- chain drive
MegaCAD Unfold – Develop ideas even more elegant
The top product MegaCAD unfold SF waiting with lots of new features. The program recognizes now independently beading, gills, and other edits of thin-walled 3D objects. And it will directly displayed them while processing.
In addition, the product has been extended by following innovations:
- The function "surface pull up" combines the functions interactively "edge pull out" and "new area".
Folding body surfaces, you can now attach engravings represented later in the processing.
With just a few clicks, you convert from immediately prisms in folding body. No matter whether you extrude a straight Prism from a profile or use an existing one.
You create a basic sheet metal to build of a folding body now conveniently from a closed contour. Just use the function "basal plane".
