"I am very pleased with Power Surfacing; it is a natural tool for making the sort of thing i do. In combination with SolidWorks, it promises to make my job freer, more fun and our product more organic. We use another plug in called ExactFlat which extracts and processes fabric patterns from SolidWorks models, these 3 software together are amazing."
Jesse Maier , Maier Manufacturing, Inc.
"Thanks for the great products!" "Your Power Surfacing RE has been an amazing (and fun) tool to work with."" Thanks again for the amazing software; Power Surfacing makes my job fun!"
- Adil Ali , BMW Group Design Works
"Great product by the way!"Stuart Brown, 3D Engineers
"Love your product! Thanks again. Such a pleasure to use."

"I love your program, for me the Power Surfacing plugin represents the most significant advancement in Solidworks modelling capability in more than a decade!"
Benjamin Ngoma Rodahl
"...I stumbled upon your plugin by accident while I was trying to solve some solidworks modelling issues. I downloaded your tryout version, and not only did it solve my problem completely, it really opened up a whole new world of possibilities that I've originally been forced to use other software (than Solidworks) to reach. Powersurfacing is really quite amazing to be honest..."
Raquel Rabago, Tovolo
"Power Surfacing has exceeded every one of our expectations for delivering fast results in a dynamic editing environment within SolidWorks. We are such fans of the new plugin..."
Jason Pancoast, CAPINC
"Adding Subdivision Surface modeling capability to SolidWorks in the most integrated and seamless way possible for a 3rd party, Power Surfacing for SolidWorks is unique in the game-changing functionality it brings to SolidWorks. The Sub-D approach to complex shape design is COMPLETELY unlike anything you have EVER been able to do in SolidWorks, and yet it complements SolidWorks so well. Their price point is remarkable given the functionality they are bringing to the table."
Jeremy Singley, www.jeremysingley.com
"CAD users know that parametric nurbs programs like SolidWorks are great for modeling precision geometry like gears, frames, etc. For building organic shapes, not so much. On the other hand, surfacing softwares make great curvy shapes but stumble over an exact 10 mm circle. Until recently, never the twain had met. Enter Integrity's nPower Surfacing add-in for SolidWorks. We've been giving it a try, and we are floored."
"No baby steps for us; we sat in on a few short tutorials, fired this puppy up and sat down to build a car, something it takes years of experience to do well in nurbs. How did it come out? Check out the picture. How long did it take? A few hours."
"Incredibly intuitive to learn, easy to use, and seamlessly functional right inside SolidWorks, this software is a joy. The surface model (actually a solid if you want) lives in the manager tree as a feature. You can go back and edit it like any feature, and downstream SolidWorks alterations will update automatically. And best of all, it's fun!"
...And they are listening to their users. In the meantime, we're finding nPower more than adequate for professional work. "
Not sure we shouldn't push the windshield on that car back 6 inches or so. Know how long that will take? Ten seconds. And nothing will break in the SolidWorks tree."
Ziga Gorjup, GorjupDesign
"Since I discovered the Power Surfacing for SolidWorks plug-in, I am using it for most of my time and on most of my projects. There has always been a gap between the polygonal modelling software and CAD software. It was always easy to create complex designs and shapes in polygonal modelling software and use it as an idea for presentation, but those ideas mostly went one step further, they needed to be realized and there was always a problem to get the same shape, lines and surfaces in CAD software. With the Power Surfacing for SolidWorks I can start designing the shape directly in CAD, use it as an idea and for presentation and after that work on exactly the same file to the final stage (Drawings, Tool design, Assembly modelling, Adding feature, etc.)."
"I found Power Surfacing for SolidWorks very useful also as a reverse engineering software. Some shapes and designs are easier to be clay modelled at the start. You can simply import the 3d scanned files into SolidWorks and start modeling the complex shapes and surfaces with Power Surfacing in a similar way you designed the clay model . You can easily follow the shape of 3d scanned object, just move some vertices and instantly see the difference on a surface shape."
"I am currently working on a motorcycle design project, where I needed to design motorcycle components out of clay in 1:1 scale. Those designs were 3d scanned and imported in SolidWorks. With the help of Power Surfacing all the components were reverse engineered and CAD modelled in several hours."
"Power Surfacing for SolidWorks sure is time and money saver as you are able to design extremely fast and efficient in one software environment only. For that kind of design before Power Surfacing you needed several different softwares and a whole lot of time."
Erik Guzman, erikguzman.com
"Power Surfacing completes the PRODUCT DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING PACKAGE"
"Power Surfacing's strength lays not only inside Solid Works (SW). In combination with Modo it the quickest, cleanest, and also least expensive work flow to create a high-end industrial level product. Spanning from product design, to manufacturing, to rendering out stills and animations of the product for marketing. This is all possible because of nPower's Power Surfacing plug-in for SW."
"Minus all the impressive technology included in Power Surfacing, the decision to have the software translate the info native in SW is it's true strength ... Power Surfacing really puts me in the drivers seat, allowing me to plan ahead for how the shape gets designed ... This is where Power Surfacing really is truly amazing ... bring it into SW using power surfacing, is a thing of beauty. You get a clean solid that still can be manipulated inside SW."
Jeremy Singley, www.jeremysingley.com
" It generally takes 5000 hours of practice to learn SolidWorks to a level where you can build a car ... In a week, I'm building a better car with nPower. And it's FUN!"
"... I really like SolidWorks CAD software. But added to that, your relationship with SW gives us what we surfacers have been pleading for for years: a complete modeling package. Welcome!"
Danen Lynn, Gunwerks
"Still loving the add-on. It's been my best friend."
Luc Spruyt, 3D Assist
"Power surfacing is a very usefull tool that realy improves the surface capabilities of Solidoworks. More intuitive, faster and more fore fun."
Todd Abernethy, CHASEDESIGN, LLC
"I'm really excited about this software ... Having it integrated into the SW platform is a dream come true."
Adam OHern, EvD Media LLC, CADjunkie.com
"... this is even more awesomer than I thought :) STOKED."
- Pascal Turcotte
"Power Surfacing is extremely easy and powerful to use."
- Alex Jones, Cambridge Industrial Design
"A great product!"
Danen Lynn, Gunwerks
"As a high end, superior quality rifle manufacturer, Gunwerks is always seeking to make our products just right. It's all about the customer experience, something we excel in. So when it came time to design a new gun stock, we wanted to make the most comfortable feeling stock we could for our customers."
"I'm a huge fan of SolidWorks. I've been designing products using SolidWorks for many years now. I feel pretty confident in my ability to do what I need to in the program to make things look right. However, when it came down to designing the grip area of the gun stock, a very organic component, the regular capabilities of SolidWorks just didn't cut it. Sure I was able to get pretty close, but in keeping with Gunwerks' drive for excellence, pretty close wasn't near good enough. And quite honestly, I was getting very frustrated not being able to do what I wanted to do."
"In my search for a solution, I stumbled across Power Surfacing for SolidWorks from NPower Software. I watched the video tutorials and it appeared to be my answer. The guys at NPower offered a free trial period with full capabilities, so I downloaded and dove in."
"I can't give enough accolades to those guys for designing such a superior product. Sure regular SolidWorks surfacing has a place, but it has taken a back seat to my new found abilities with Power Surfacing. Working in Power Surfacing feels like molding with clay. Finally I have a way to master FULL CONTROL of my models. There doesn't appear to be any limit on what I can shape using this tool. Needless to say, when I showed my boss what it was capable of and what I was unable to do without it, he was sold."
"You don't have to take my word for it, though I'm happy to stamp my approval. Just try it for yourself and you'll find out what I did. How did we ever survive in the 3D CAD world without Power Surfacing before this?"
William Gould, Gould Studios
"I've been putting it to the test, and am VERY impressed ... and am sure I will add it to my pipeline!"
"e;Attached are some images of my first real model, a Bonneville Lakester concept car. I've wanted to do this look for years, but it's really not practical in SolidWorks. Until now!"
"As an industrial designer I have been dreaming of a tool like this for years"
"I love your software."
Mike Tripoli, SCARY Design

"Power Surfacing has brought the fun back into surface design. Change existing Solidworks surfaces and create new ones on the fly. Good price point. Easy to use. What is not to like with Power Surfacing? I believe that you cannot now count yourself as a Solidworks surfacing professional unless you have Power Surfacing in your armoury. The gains in productivity are truly epic. Power Surfacing is a true game changer for Solidworks surfacing users."
"Wow, I love the software so far!"
Tina Post, Implantech Associates, Inc.
"I use the power surfacing add-in everyday on different projects, it has been an amazing help in the surfaces we try to create."
Todd Abernethy, SKA-CDS
"Love the program. "
