Other features include a photo-realistic rendering engine and textured objects, which let designers get real-time realistic views of products while they’re being designed. Motion simulation creates animations for studying moving parts in assemblies. Moreover, assembly interface can be visually checked with dynamic clipping offering close, segmented and internal views of parts and assemblies.
Mechanical designers can now get section views on layouts with different hatching options that provide a much better view of assemblies without a lot of manual editing. Mold designers are said to be able to design electrodes faster with an auto-electrode tool that speeds creation and machining of multiple electrodes. Automatic region recognition for picking connected set of faces speeds electrode design by reducing the number of picks for complex electrodes with many surfaces.
