KOMPAS-3D is a flexible 3D modeling system that allows creating models by several methods, including the following ones:
Bottom-up modeling using finished components. Top-down modeling by designing components to match specific designs. Modeling based on layout drawings, such as kinematic diagrams. Or any combination of these modeling methods. These approaches allow creating editable associative models easily.
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.
cadwork is a CAD software, developed by the CSEM. It allows users to draw, to design, or to manufacture. Originally, cadwork was created for the watch industry, but now it is mostly used by the architecture, engineering and construction market, that is civil engineering, carpentry, topographic, road building, architecture, armed concrete, glue laminated timber, stairs.
cadwork offers special modules to provide solutions for different tasks. The modules are fully-fledged components, related to each area of activity and they can be arranged to represent an entity. Thus, they can be exchanged against other modules, or complete an already existing CAD / CAM solution. The existing modules are the following: 2D-Layouts and details, 3D-Modeling, cadwork Viewer, 3D-Cabinet, Roof, Element, List, Piece by piece shop drawing, CNC machines, Staircases, Variant-parametric, Glulam.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
