BricsCAD Mechanical provides a rich toolset for solid modeling, including traditional 3D modeling tools like Extrude or Subtract and intuitive Direct Editing tools like; Push/Pull, Copy Faces and powerful 3D Constraints which allow you to adjust the shape and size of your 3D part.
3D solids tools are available on the Solid ribbon tab of the Mechanical workspace:
The Erase tool can be applied to the whole 3D solid as well as to a set of its faces forming a feature (e.g. a fillet or a hole).
The Audit tool is useful to find and fix errors in imported geometry.
The Simplify tool allows you to automatically recognize canonical faces (planar, cylindrical, conical, spherical, toroidal) from spline faces of your 3D solid, which is often needed before applying 3D constraints.
The Stitch tool allows you to stitch touching surfaces and regions, that form a watertight boundary, into a single 3D solid,
The Smart Selection tools allow you to select faces and edges of your 3D solids based on particular geometric and topologic criteria - such as length, area and smoothness.
3D Constraints can be added to faces and edges of 3D solids to align and resize them, and will make your 3D part parametric. Many geometric 3D constraints like parallel/perpendicular, coaxial, tangent can be applied automatically using Design Intent recognition.
|BricsCAD is a history-free modeler; it does not create parent-child dependencies between features, nor regenerates geometry on parameter change. Full-blown parametric control can be embedded into any 3D part (including imported ones) using 3D constraints.|
