The benefits at a glance
Easy and quick to learn
New users can be productive within a very short time.
Low follow-up costs
No costly, time-consuming training is necessary, and there are no other hidden costs.
Easy to use
The user interface is self-explanatory and adapted to practical requirements.
Complete 3D package with full 2D functionality
Editing the model directly without having to consider parametric relations means freedom and flexibility. Designers can thus respond swiftly to changing conditions without being hampered by the history tree.
The designer has the freedom to choose
MegaCAD lets the user select the most effective method of proceeding by uniting both approaches in a single program. Feature-based design and direct modeling with local operations complement each other perfectly.
3D objects can be edited directly using local operations. The changes remain local and do not affect the design as a whole.
Fast, intuitive and flexible design method
The command cursor permits 2D and 3D elements to be modified by simply clicking directly on the geometry. This offers significant advantages: Designers can respond flexibly to changing conditions without being hampered by the history tree or a missing parameter.
Views and sections can be derived from a 3D model as required, with automatic updates when the 3D design is edited.
MegaCAD is a highly flexible tool, even in its basic version without additional modules.
Design aids, intelligent user guidance
Context-sensitive menus offer functions relevant to the current operation.
2D/3D edge, 3D surface and 3D solid models are available. MegaCAD provides a uniform user experience for all models.
Powerful free-form model for advanced design requirements.
Test the installation of new assemblies on-screen.
Direct data interchange
with any of the many CAD/CAM applications that are also based on ACIS. In addition, numerous mature interfaces are available (HPGL, DXF, DWG, CDL, IGES, 3DS, STL, VDAFS)
