Affordable 3D modeling System KOMPAS-3D v19

KOMPAS-3D is a Russian 3D design system that has become a standard for thousands of enterprises and tens of thousands of professional users.

The KOMPAS-3D system is widely used for designing products of the main and auxiliary production in such industries as engineering (transport, agricultural, energy, oil and gas, chemical, etc.), instrument making, aircraft building, shipbuilding, machine tool building, car building, metallurgy, industrial – civil engineering, consumer goods, etc.

The KOMPAS-3D system has powerful functions for managing design 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:

  • 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 you to create editable associative models easily.

The KOMPAS-3D system has powerful functions for managing project 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

  • Intuitive creation of new geometry, and importing and manipulation of surfaces.
  • Associative settings for element parameters.
  • Boolean operators for generating atypically shaped elements; functions include union, intersection, and subtraction.
  • Advanced surface and shape modeling for designing complex, ergonomic, and easy to use industrial products; functions include point grids, by network of curves, ruled surfaces, extrusions, lofted surfaces, swept surfaces, and revolutions.
  • Construction of auxiliary lines and planes, and spatial curves, including broken lines, splines, and spirals.
  • Redetermination of the parameters of any element at any design stage causes a reconstruction of the whole model.
  • Effective mold design with pattern drafts, joint lines, cavities defined by part shape, and shrinkage allowance.
  • Capable sheet metal modeling through sheet body creation, bends, holes, louver, fillets, punching (stamping) and cutting, cap closing, sheet metal unwrapping, and associative drawings of unwrapped sheet metal.
  • Inserting standards products into the model from a library, generating user model libraries.
  • Efficient collision detection of parts.
  • Addition of structural elements, such as chamfers, fillets, holes, stiffness elements, and thin-walled shells.
  • Creation of any shape of arrays and assembly components.
  • Component modeling with assemblies, with relative positioning of parts in assemblies.
  • Constraints for mating assembly components, including automatic constraints for faster assembly creation.
  • Special tools to simplify work with large assemblies.
  • Flexible parts and assembly editing, including characteristic points.
