VX Corporation (Melbourne, FL), specializing in CAD/CAM for consumer products and molds, announces real-time zebra stripe and draft analysis capabilities in VX CAD/CAM. Zebra stripe analysis lets designers analyze curvature providing early insight into a product’s look and feel. Draft analysis is important for evaluating the “moldability” of a product. Not enough draft, negative draft or undercuts increase complexity, cost and time in both mold and product production. Typically designers have to go into a special analysis mode and then back into modeling mode to make modifications, but with VX Version 13, designers can now work continuously on a model while displaying either a zebra stripe or draft analysis thus providing instantaneous, real-time feedback without interruptions or slow-downs.
