San Diego, California (for release August 13, 2010)—nPower Software, a division of IntegrityWare, Inc, announced today the 7.0 release of its popular Power NURBS, Power Solids, and Power Translators products (with support for Autodesk® 3ds max® 2011 and Autodesk® 3ds max® Design 2011). Version 7.0 of nPower Software's popular Power NURBS, Power Translators, and Power Solids products includes new tools to improve concept to manufacturing work flow and usability. With support for new import file formats like JT, SolidEdge, SolidWorks and Parasolid, and new export formats (STL), the 7.0 version provides better end to end solutions. The new Power Slice tool facilitates creation of section views or cutaways. There are many new user interface improvements like adding grips for dynamically manipulating objects, a new tangency flipping tool, and a simplified file import interface. The new file import interface also allows for selectively importing parts in an assembly. Overall, version 7.0 simplifies the user interface and streamlines the work flow.

Power NURBS / Power Translators / Power Solids 7.0 introduces the following new features:
spacer  
Support for Autodesk® 3ds max® 2011 and Autodesk® 3ds max® Design 2011 (including 64 Bit)
New Power Slice Tool
 

New Power Slice tool makes it easy to create section views or slice up the model to reveal interior sections.

New Tangency Flipping Tool
 

The new tangency flipping tool provides an improved and simplified user interface for controlling surface tangency.

Added New Selective part import option
 

Now you can selectively import parts of an assembly instead of always getting the whole assembly.

Improved Manipulation UI
 

Grips have been added to the Power primitives and extrude shapes so that the user can quickly and visually update NURBS shapes.

Added Export to STL
 

To simplify the process of Rapid Prototyping, there is now an option to export directly to the STL format.

Improved and simplified interface for file importing
 

Version 7.0 simplifies the user interface for importing files of various CAD formats.

New file formats for Power Translators Universal
 

With version 7.0, Power Translators Universal has added support for JT, SolidEdge, SolidWorks, and Parasolid file formats.

Improved quality
 

Version 7.0 fixes several important bugs.

Power NURBS, Power Translators, Power Solids, and the Power Body Object Toolkit are based on IntegrityWare’s SOLIDS++ geometric modeling Kernel, a unique and powerful hybrid modeling system that supports Solids, Surface and Polygonal modeling. nPower modeling tools (Power NURBS, Solids, Translators) bring the highest order of surfacing, solids modeling, analysis, and tessellation technologies to the popular Autodesk® 3ds max® and Viz™ 3D design products.  Power NURBS provides advanced Solids Modeling tools like Booleans, shelling and variable radius filleting that are normally found only in high end CAD systems; it also provides advanced Surface Modeling tools like high continuity blending, multi-rail sweeps, and high continuity class-A surfaces which meet the exacting standards of the automotive and aerospace industries. Power Solids is a subset of Power NURBS which contains the advanced Solids Modeling features. Intelligent Power NURBS and Solids Objects retain their parameters and update automatically through design revisions. And unique advanced tangency controls allow users to have interactive feedback and greater control over surface properties. 

 

Power NURBS, Solids and Translators also enable designers from all markets to create or import solid objects that can be quickly turned into accurate physical objects using modern prototyping techniques (like stereo lithography).

 
 

Engineers, designers, architects, and artists from top companies around the world like Toyota, Boeing, Microsoft, Disney, SEGA, Blizzard Entertainment, Northrup Grumman, Sony, Honda, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Whirlpool, Blur Studio, Fisher Price, Gensler, Harley Davidson, Fox Sports, Caterpillar, Johnson & Johnson, Philips, BAE Systems, SolidWorks, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, HDR, Hewlett Packard and Cannon Equipment are optimizing their design throughput with nPower Software.

 

Power NURBS Pro sells for $995, Power Translators Basic sells for $495, and Power Solids sells for $695. For customers using version 6.0, there is a discounted upgrade option which costs $149 to upgrade to version 7.0. nPower products can be purchased from the nPower web store (www.nPowerSoftware.com/store.htm), or through certified nPower Software resellers throughout the world.
