With the constant development of software technologies, it is now possible to model directly in 3D on a computer almost as intuitively as if you were handling modelling clay or putty.
3SHAPER combines incredible sculpture possibilities on sub-division surfaces with the power of the hybrid 3D design engine 3DESIGN CAD.
You can pull or push on a model's construction points, on the surfaces, you can use sculpting brushes, etc...
3SHAPER allows you to:
- intuitively model organic shapes freely and naturally,
- your ideas instantly take shape in 3D on your screen as you create them,
- at any time, your creation can be transformed into a file that is ready to be prototyped or a magnificent hyper-realistic preview image which you can share with your clients.
The result of meticulous R&D and listening to the market, today 3SHAPER V2 offers a solution which pushes the limits of your imagination.
Initially launched as an option within 3DESIGN CAD to follow the success brought by users and at the unanimous request of the market, 3SHAPER V2 is now also available in independent versions.
4 solutions are offered for 3SHAPER, expand below.
3SHAPER as a 3DESIGN option: your most original ideas take shape
Fully integrated into 3DESIGN, this modelling option offers a perfect added solution to 3DESIGN.
For designers wanting to combine traditional jewelry design solutions in a single package along with creations of organic or complex shapes.
Unique on the market, there is now a link between CAD and SCULPTURE, in a single integrated solution.
The 3SHAPER tools are organized into four categories: Selection, Editing, Modification and Creation. Combined, the latter bring the incredible designs only your imagination can create to life to create: animal or plant shapes, complex interlacing, forked bodies, any form of very original or unique sculpture!
3SHAPER Essential: Enter in a new artistic CAD dimension
An input solution, the 3SHAPER Essential software offers a full CAD modeling/full-3D artistic sculpture solution: from the creation of your models and organic shapes starting a zero to the photo rendering and finally to production.
In just a few operations, your designs are ready for a 3D printer prototyping machine, a presentation for your clients, suppliers or teams thanks to ray tracing or the animation function (creation of video movies).
(You can also upgrade to the 3SHAPER Diamond package at any time).
3SHAPER Diamond: The "all-in-one" Sub-D CAD solution for modelling organic shapes and jewelry
The 3SHAPER Diamond software offers the same powerful and innovative solutions as 3SHAPER Essential with EXTRA professional functions specific to jewelry such as stone handling.
Thanks to its jewelry features: creation of stone(s), calculation of material weight, decorative piercing, etc... it makes your designs precious and of jeweler standard.
With this premium artistic CAD software, you can go further, create original designs and even more.
(You can also upgrade to the 3SHAPER Phenix package at any time).
Open your eyes to a world of new opportunities with 3D reconstruction: reconstruct, model, personalize, export!
This 3SHAPER Phenix solution includes all the features of 3SHAPER Diamond along with our new RETOPOLOGY features.
3SHAPER Phenix covers all the reverse engineering features required for surface reconstruction. The retopology feature offers an effective solution to those delicate 3D reconstruction needs: to work on objects from 3D scans (such as watch casings, coins/parts, miniatures or figurines, stones, etc.)
Some examples below on how to use the retopology and 3SHAPER V2 features:
- Reconstruction of a scanned 3D part which can, among others file formats, be imported as STL
- Marking and modelling of an imported OBJ file
- Exporting the final result as a surfcae object such as STEP or IGES
Generally speaking, 3SHAPER Phenix can help you convert a point cloud into NURBS surfaces. But the 3SHAPER Phenix solution is not limited to reconstruction. It also includes all the features of 3SHAPER Diamond: Design and Modeling of any 3D shape.
