You can use Shapr3D, a direct modeling app, with parametric modeling software in any order in your workflow. You can use both types of modeling software to create the same CAD result, so you can make concept models or final prototypes for manufacturing.
To share your models between Shapr3D and other programs, create outputs that are in standard CAD file formats (STP, IGS, and X_T). These files don’t contain feature histories; they only store solids, which means you can freely move them between programs.
Shapr3D fits seamlessly into any designer’s workflow:
- You can create models directly in Shapr3D and modify them later
- You can import models that were created with a direct modeling or a parametric modeling tool and modify them
When you’re in a meeting room with clients, you can quickly and directly edit or showcase models in Shapr3D and explore ideas quickly. When you finalize designs in Shapr3D, you can then export your project to a different CAD software to edit or rebuild them if necessary. Shapr3D is ideal for a fast-paced, efficient workflow: you can create concept and manufacturing models with ease, and explore ideas quickly.
