SpaceClaim is the world's fastest and most innovative 3D direct modeler. It enables engineers to easily create concepts and prepare 3D designs for prototyping, analysis, and manufacturing.
SpaceClaim brings 3D solid modeling to the desktops of engineers and analysts who work in a 3D world but don't want to become experts in traditional feature-based CAD systems.
SpaceClaim helps engineers interact with CAD geometry in exciting new ways. Without becoming a CAD expert, you can make dramatic edits to models, conceptualize on-the-fly, and communicate quickly and easily with prototyping and manufacturing. This means that engineering teams can finish projects with ease, in a fraction of the time.
Direct Modeling revolutionizes the way you think about working with 3D solid models by letting you focus on what you are designing rather than the theory of your design process. Unlike with traditional feature-based CAD, you can reuse data or remix geometry from other designs, even those created in CAD systems. You can take a design where it needs to go, regardless of how it was built or the CAD system in which it was created.
Create new concepts and share them with other engineers before entering the detailed design phase: together, you get the concepts right and avoid expensive last-minute design changes. From a blank slate, start drawing 3D shapes as easily and freely as you would on the back of a napkin. De-feature and simplify parts for analysis or manufacturing and optimize the design without being constrained by original modeling intent.
Intuitive tools such as Pull and Move let you directly select portions of the model and move them where you want. The Combine tool slices and divides parts into pieces and lets you merge in portions from other designs. The Fill tool cleans up small features and fills holes. Together, these direct modeling tools let you get your job done without resorting to traditional CAD.
INDUSTRY-LEADING DIRECT MODELING
Direct modeling tools scale from simple shapes to complex blends and variable section sweeps. Pull and Move tools work on both faces and edges, allowing maximum flexibility. Add hints for thin walls, mirrored, concentric, rounded, and chamfered geometry.
3D CROSS SECTION CREATION AND MANIPULATION
Draw 3D extruded, revolved, and swept geometry without ever leaving a 2D cross section. Sketch out a new concept and get a solid 3D design without having to perform extra work. Import a complex assembly, section through it, and immediately edit the section using the same Pull and Move tools you use in 3D.
PARAMETERS WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS
Change the value of a dimension, simply by selecting what you want to move and editing the value: your geometry goes to the right place. There's no need to set up complicated systems of constraints. Different users can set up and save their own sets of dimensions so that others can work with the model the way they want.
FLEXIBLE ASSEMBLY STRUCTURE
Turn a part into an assembly or vice versa. Create assembly structure before you've drawn a shape, or draw a dozen parts and create the structure later. Never worry about inter-component relationships preventing changes. Export subassemblies into external files for reuse in other designs, or incorporate an existing design for unique customization without impacting other designs.
DESIGN IN ANY CONTEXT
The same tools work to edit assemblies, parts, drawing views, and 3D markups enable you to create and make changes wherever you see the need. You don't have to worry about switching to the right mode.
DESIGN THIN PARTS WITH DIRECT MODELING
For thin-walled parts such as flexible PCBs and sheet metal, the Pull and Move tools focus on making designs that can be cut and folded. SpaceClaim automatically generates a flat pattern with compensated bend allowance.
