Argon v8 -- Digital Delivery -- Research, Charitable & Retired Edition

Powerful 3D Modeling for Occasional Users on Win and Mac

Enter the world of 3D modeling with more power and accuracy than any other product at this price point. Intended for those who only occasionally need 3D, Argon v9 Digital delivery's hybrid solid and surface modeling capabilities provide unmatched flexibility in shape design with data accuracy that meets or exceeds any other software in this industry, thereby easing data translations and collaboration. Argon v9 is also an excellent companion product for those needing to add solids, surfaces, translators or rendering to their already-existing tool set. The renowned Ashlar-Vellum user interface makes Argon v9 faster to learn and use than any other product of its class.
Note: both Windows and Mac versions are shipped on the same media.

Features and benefits

  • Unified 3D surfacing and solids.
  • Class-A NURBS surface modeling.
  • True solid modeling.
  • Classic Vellum 2D/3D freeform wireframe integration.
  • Advanced Vellum Drafting Assistant for intelligent snaps and alignments in X,Y, and Z.
  • 2D non-associative view generation.
  • Surface analysis.
  • Extensive precision imports and exports including ACIS SAT, Pro/E, Parasolid, IGES, STEP, DXF, DWG, EPS, AI, CATIA and more.
  • Advanced photo-realistic rendering.
  • 3D web exports in ShockWave 3D, VRML, Viewpoint and more.
  • Fly-by, Walk-through, Object VR, and Panoramic VR animations.
