KOMPAS-3D - 3D CAD solution from ASCON provides effective industrial product development, release of design and drafting documentation.
KOMPAS-3D combines all basic features for Parametric 3D Solid Modelling, full-scale 2D Design and Drafting opportunities, special add-ons for photo rendering, motion simulation, kinematic and dynamic analysis, import/export from other CAD/AEC/PLM solutions.
KOMPAS solutions are famous for its powerful functionality in the mid-range CAD segment, easy-to-use and learn features and comfortable interface, reasonable price and strong compatibility functions. During over 30 years history of KOMPAS software solutions over 100 000 seats has been installed.
The KOMPAS-3D system has powerful functions for managing projects of thousands of sub-assemblies, parts, and standard library products. It supports all the capabilities of 3D solids and surface modeling that have become the standard among medium-level CAD/CAM programs, including these ones:
Toolbars have been combined into ribbon-like sets, with each set designed for specific tasks. As you switch between different types of documents, the sets change dynamically. Users can work in traditional light mode or the new dark theme (see figure 1).
The new Quick Access Toolbar offers easy access to commands that select modes, control images, and more.
We added more languages, so that users can run KOMPAS-3D in English, Turkish, and Korean.

We rewrote KOMPAS-3D's internal algorithms to improve performances. The result is that many tasks are now accelerated, such as working with three-dimensional models (see figure 2), creating and updating associative views (see figures 3 and 4), displaying the user interface and work windows, more. The updated system is now the fastest version ever of KOMPAS-3D.

Users can now insert components into assemblies that are mirrored (see figure 5).

KOMPAS-3D is better at working with sheet metal with the new functions that we added, and we improved the way that fillets are constructed.
Model documents can now contain multiple versions of the same model. Data about two or more model-build options take common design features and then generate the variations with user-defined differences.
We improved how the BOM (bills of materials) and the Add-Ons Configurator work.

3D-Storage is a system for data storage and collaboration of engineers.
The tool serves for the arrangement of the collaboration of designers with models, drawings, specifications of KOMPAS-3D and other CAD at the development stages: technical proposal, sketch design, technical design, detail design documentation of prototype, i.e. before the generation of the engineering bill of material. Companies can use the system to set up remote mode of work.
The Animation add-in performs motion simulation of 3D products developed with KOMPAS-3D. The add-in simulates real-world motions of products and their component parts, and then records them as video recordings in AVI format.
Design System "Cables and Harnesses" is a specialized Add-on for electrical cables and harnesses modelling in KOMPAS-3D.
The 3D Stamps application is intended for automating design of stamps for sheet metal parts designed in KOMPAS-3D. The Add-On allows to create a set of all technical documentation necessary for a stamp.
The Dimensional Chains Calculation Add-On calculates dimension chains, and finds the right value of closing segments using a variety of calculation methods.
Material library is database of information about materials that are used to manufacture products. Materials Library applies physical and mechanical material properties to 3D models designed in KOMPAS-3D.
An object of this Materials library is a material, shape, processing, document that defines requirements to an object or its properties, assortment, assortment example.
Mould design system is an application for KOMPAS-3D intended for automatization of design and construction works and technological operations related to design of moulds for pressure casting of plastic parts.
Mould design system is a powerful tool for increasing performance of production accessories designers, for increasing design quality and therefore improving competitiveness of company’s products.
Pipelines 3D is a specialized application for KOMPAS-3D software; it is intended for automation of routine works on pipelines design.
The library is intended for using in the machine building area and for designing utility networks.
The application can use components manually created by user and components from Standardized Parts catalogues as standard pipeline’s components.
KOMPAS-Expert is an Add-On for finding and correcting errors in КОМПАС-3D documents.
Standard Parts library contains standard parts according to DIN and ISO standards.
The catalogue contains 3D models and 2D drawings of standard parts and structural elements both for KOMPAS-3D and KOMPAS-Graphic.
APM FEM is a strength analysis module designed to work with the CAD software system KOMPAS-3D.
The main goal of the module is to help engineer to make reasonable design decisions using 3D models calculations. This undoubtedly improves the quality and saves time spent on product development, and therefore makes it competitive!
The 3D circuit board model converter is a specialized module used to import a 3D circuit board model, designed in systems like P-CAD and Altium Designer (also named Protel in the past). The converter can read the standardized data exchange IDF format in KOMPAS-3D. The converter works with IDF-files exported from P-CAD (v. 2000-2006), OrCAD (v. 9.X), and Altium Designer.
Once imported into KOMPAS-3D, the 3D models of printed circuit boards are then used to arrange other devices, blocks, equipment modules, and so on.
The KompasFlow application is a KOMPAS-3D integrated tool for rapid testing of the aerohydrodynamics of a design device.
KompasFlow has a simple interface for rapid testing of a device in early design stages and makes it possible to make a primary assessment of the impact of modifications of device geometry on its effectiveness.
