Mechanical CAD with KOMPAS-3D
KOMPAS-3D creates associative three-dimensional models of individual parts and assemblies. The models can be made from original designs and/or standard part libraries. Its parametric technology allows you to quickly generate ranges of product models based on single prototypes. Numerous utility functions help you solve auxiliary design and production problems.
A key feature of KOMPAS-3D is that it uses its own modeling kernel and parametric system, both of which were developed by the specialists at ASCON.
The fundamental purpose of KOMPAS-3D is to model new products quickly, to reduce their design time and to launch them into production as fast as possible. These goals are reached by the following features found in KOMPAS-3D:
- Quickly creates engineering and design documentation for production output, including assembly drawings, BOMs, and detail drawings.
- Cleanly translates geometry to design applications.
- Accurately exports model geometry to control-programs, such as for NC equipment.
- Efficiently generates images and illustrations for product catalogs and operating manuals.
KOMPAS-3D supports IGES, SAT, XT, STEP, and VRML formats, among many others, allowing you to import and export models to and from a variety of other CAD, CAM, and CAE systems.
