BricsCAD Mechanical provides a rich toolset for solid modeling, that includes traditional 3D modeling tools like Extrude or Subtract but also intuitive Direct Editing tools like; Push/Pull, Copy Faces and powerful 3D Constraints that allow to adjust the shape and size of your 3D part.
3D solids tools are available on the Solid tab of the Mechanical workspace Ribbon:
Erase tool can be applied to the whole 3D solid as well as to a set of its faces forming a feature (such a fillet or a hole) and results in the deletion of the selected 3D solid/feature.
Audit tool is useful to find and fix errors in imported geometry.
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.
Stitch tool allows to stitch disjoint surfaces and regions into one 3D solid, to form a watertight boundary.
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 one) using 3D constraints.|
