Industrial design and Class-A surfacing software
Alias Design 2020 3-Year Multi-user Subscription provides sketching, concept modeling, surfacing, and visualization tools for industrial, product, and automotive design.
Concept design and fast concept modeling
Sketching and illustration tools - Draw and edit with integrated tools. Capture lines, circles, and ellipses with predictive strokes,
Flexible product modeling - Fast, repeatable, curve-based modeling tools let you directly edit and sculpt 3D models.
Improved color assignment for layers - Random custom color assignments for layers and layer folders.
Customized clutch keys - Define clutch key assignments.
View options in Curve Planarize - Add view options in the Curve Planarize.
Surface fillet improvements - Add the option of Inter Continuity and Inter Tangent Angle checking in surface fillets.
Skin tool options - Add the Shape option in the Skin 2012 tool to control the CV layout of the Skin surface section.
Variable degree surface fillets - You have the ability to have a variable degree in fillet surfaces.
Dynamic shape modeling - Quickly manipulate your product model and explore shape variations on 3D forms without rebuilding geometry.
3D sculpting - 3D sculpt surfaces by directly adjusting surface control vertices. Use curve-based tools, direct modeling, and more.
Detailed design and surface analysis
Deck seam - Deck seam (similar to a flat fell seam) has been added to the Stitch and Seam tool.
Mathematically precise surface creation - Access tools that help you create mathematical shapes. For example, control pitch with the
Revolve tool, and more.
Multiblend tool - Make smooth transitions between surfaces.
Light ray effects and reflections - Study your surfaces in a virtual lighting studio with the Light Tunnel tool.
Automatic arrays of shapes - Simplify uniform and non-uniform objects, using arrays. Create arrays of lines and surfaces in 2D and
Stitches and seams - Automatically create stitches and seams.
Surface chain select tool - Select a chain of surfaces with one pick.
Shading in clay - Temporarily change your shaders to a clay material. When you're finished, your model goes back to its original
Design communication and product visualization
Interactive product visualization - Evaluate design options with real-time visualizations. Use shading models, apply color, add
texture, and more.
Compelling photorealistic renderings - Visualize your product with high-resolution imagery.
Convenient data exchange - Share industrial design data with mechanical design and CAD software, including Inventor, CATIA,
SOLIDWORKS, and many others.
Interoperability with other tools - Interoperability helps streamline operations with other products used in the design process, such
as cutters, meshers, and more.
Switch between shading assignments - Easily switch between color combinations.
Variant configuration sets - Capture your current view to return to it easily.
