About Autodesk PowerShape 2018. PowerShape's tribrid modelling approach has been through something of a renaissance of late. In addition to being able to wrangle not only surfaces, solids and mesh data into shape, the system also started to gain more intelligent modelling tools with the introduction of the Parasolid kernel a few years ago.
2018 continues this with the addition of new sketching intelligence that allows you to not only sketch parametrically and associatively, but to also drive those dimension constraints as you would in most other modelling systems. It might be hugely useful for most PowerShape users, but for those looking to build intelligent and adaptable models (perhaps of standard fixtures, stock etc.), then it'll be ideal.
Also, PowerShape's ability to work with mesh data alongside solids and surfaces is something that has predated more mainstream tools, which are currently making a lot of noise about it.
In this release, the tools continue to mature with not only greater control over selection (using more intuitive methods), but also a new automated mesh fixing tool.
This follows the conventions of the existing "Solid Doctor" tool in PowerShape, that applies a set of preconfigured checks and fixes to surfaces, but adapts it for mesh repair. Again, you have the same ability to step out of this wizard driven workflow at any point, fix your geometry manually, then step back into it to complete the task.
Another mesh related tool, that builds on the region detection tools built into PowerShape a little while ago, allows you to quickly find areas of a mesh that confirm to primitive type surfaces, whether that's a planar face, a cylinder or a fillet or such. These can then be used to quickly reconstruct a more 'engineering' type model from scan data.
This release builds on this with the 'Extend Primitives' operation, which will automatically grow each surface primitive so you have more geometry with which to 'trim back' your model in a solid or a set of surfaces for further use. It's automated and when combined with the automatic trimming function, makes light work of what could be a time consuming process.
The last update relates to the design of electrodes. PowerShape's ability to provide export options to get your electrodes ready for manufacture and the shopfloor has been extended with greater support working alongside Georg Fischer's MPP (Multi-Process Preparation) platform.
This is a bi-directional interface that allows you to pass data back from MPP to PowerShape to get a better suite of information for production. PowerShape gives MPPP the electrode geometry and applies your desired surface finish. MPPP then uses that to calculate the burn parameters and feeds back the undersizing parameters to PowerShape, which is used to adapt the geometry.
