Delcam (Birmingham, U.K.) demonstrated at JEC Europe 2012 the latest developments in its PowerSHAPE design software. The major change to the 2012 release of PowerSHAPE is a range of direct modeling options focused on design for manufacture, particularly on preparing product designs for the development of molds and other types of tooling. In use, direct modeling is faster than surface modeling and can shorten the overall time needed to produce tooling designs.
