San Diego, July 19, 2018 - nPower Software / IntegrityWare, Inc announces the release of version 5 of its award winning products - Power Surfacing / Power Surfacing RE for SOLIDWORKS®. Version 5 is a significant upgrade, with patent pending new features and improvements to greatly improve productivity and usability.

With new patent pending technology, version 5 makes Power Surfacing RE a powerful, unmatched tool for reverse engineering scanned meshes, sculpted meshes (like ZBrush), and SOLIDWORKS® geometry. The 5.0 version automates many of the most difficult reverse engineering operations to simplify the design work flow. Patented shrink wrap technology also provides unparalleled accuracy while minimizing the model overhead. Here are some of the major Power Surfacing RE new features that will greatly improve reverse engineering productivity. (See a video overview of the new Power Surfacing RE features.)

  • Automated scanned mesh conversion (see video)
  • Superior accuracy with Shrink Wrap technology
  • Follows curvature and mesh flow lines
  • Powerful, automated mesh cleanup (see video)
  • Intelligently captures geometric detail
  • Topology optimization conversion (see video)

Power Surfacing is the premier industrial design solution for SOLIDWORKS®. Version 5.0 of Power Surfacing makes further improvements in an already extremely easy to use and powerful product. Improvements in assembly management, constraining to 2D & 3D sketches, UI, network licensing, etc. make Power Surfacing 5.0 more efficient and even easier to use in creating and modifying complex / beautiful surface geometry. The new assembly features provide for greater flexibility in handling various work flows to meet a wide range of customer requirements. Constraining to 2D & 3D sketches provides for greater parametric capabilities and more streamlined design (see video showing constraining to sketches). The bottom line is that the 5.0 version enables customers to get their industrial design work done faster and easier.

Power Surfacing / Power Surfacing RE are tightly integrated within SOLIDWORKS®, and the objects they create live within the SOLIDWORKS® feature tree just like typical SOLIDWORKS® features. Many other additional features (and videos) can be found on the Power Surfacing and Power Surfacing RE web pages.

Power Surfacing RE is an add-in reverse envineering (RE) product for SOLIDWORKS® 3D design software that significantly improves the process for reverse engineering scanned meshes, other mesh data, and SOLIDWORKS® geometry within SOLIDWORKS®. Power Surfacing RE is the industry leading solution for reverse engineering organic meshes. It provides extremely accurate conversion of even the largest of scanned meshes; it is fast and efficient, creating light weight models out of extremely complex scans. If you need to convert complex, difficult scanned data into SOLIDWORKS® geometry, Power Surfacing RE is the ideal solution.

Power Surfacing RE is built on top of the award winning Power Surfacing product. Power Surfacing is a subdivision surface (SubD) based organic modeling tool for SOLIDWORKS®. Power Surfacing creates fully compatible SOLIDWORKS® surfaces and solids that support all of the powerful SOLIDWORKS® commands that you use on native SOLIDWORKS® geometry.
With its tight integration inside of SOLIDWORKS®, and its rich and powerful feature set, Power Surfacing has become the tool of choice for industrial designers who want to quickly generate beautiful designs that can easily be turned into manufactured solutions.

nPowerSoftware is a certified SOLIDWORKS® Gold Partner.

Quotes from Power Surfacing / Power Surfacing RE Customers

Andrew Ward (see image of Andrew's car design ) :
"..it's greatest utility lies in it's ability to make rapid changes throughout the design process. If you're familiar with advanced surfacing techniques in Solidworks, I don't need to tell you how laborious it would be just to change a single contour in such a design..With Power Surfacing, you can make such changes in a matter of seconds and immediately see the results, which is invaluable to product designers."

"...it's unlikely that I'd even attempt to do these models without the aid of Power Surfacing."

 

Mat Bowtell (see image of Mat's prosthetic hand design) :
"Power Surfacing RE has completely opened up new horizons for what I am able to design in within Solidworks. I was able to design in days what would have previously taken months. It has allowed me to create organic shapes and edit scanned meshes with ease. With Power Surfacing RE, I have been able to take my prosthetic hand designs to a whole new level, and I am now only limited by my own imagination. I cannot thank N Power software enough."

 

James Bevan (Duncan Walton London):
"I love your program, for me the Power Surfacing plugin represents the most significant advancement in Solidworks modelling capability in more than a decade!"

Andries van Overbeek (see electric car design by Andries):
"For me personally Power Surfacing is an incredibly powerful and enabling tool, I'm very happy I came across it!"

"PowerSurfacing makes the CAD process much more joyful, intuitive and playful and less tedious."

 

Ron Ogletree (Sabre Racing) - see Corvette race car designed by Ron:
"Our design process went from 8 months to 6 weeks. "
