ASCON Group, Russian developer of high-performance CAD/AEC/PLM systems, unveils the English language release of KOMPAS-3D V18 for mechanical engineers. This CAD program for professionals offers speedier processes, multiple productivity improvements and new functions.
New User Interface
Toolbars have been combined into ribbon-like sets, with each set designed for specific tasks. As you switch between different types of documents, the sets change dynamically. Users can work in traditional light mode or the new dark theme.
The new Quick Access Toolbar offers easy access to commands that select modes, control images and more. There are more languages, so that users can run KOMPAS-3D in English, Turkish and Korean.
Improved 3D Modeling
The company rewrote KOMPAS-3D's internal algorithms to improve performances. The result is that many tasks are now accelerated, such as working with three-dimensional models, creating and updating associative views, displaying the user interface and work windows. The updated system is now the fastest version ever of KOMPAS-3D.
New Versioning Capability
Model documents can now contain multiple versions of the same model. Data about two or more model-build options take common design features and then generate the variations with user-defined differences.
KOMPAS-3D V18 is available now through ASCON’s worldwide network of value-added resellers.
