KOMPAS-3D V18 is a professional computer-aided design system for mechanical engineers with powerful functions for the 3D and 2D design process, along with a user- friendly interface, easy to learn features, and flexible collaboration with third-party software.
KOMPAS-3D V18 features more than 100 enhancements that give customers the ability to increase their productivity through faster operations, improved usability and simplified product development – with fewer errors throughout the design-to-product process.
New in this version
Locating Components in Models KOMPAS-3D V18 provides users with two new ways to place components in models:
Model Zones KOMPAS-3D V18 offers a new way to select objects quickly based on their position relative to a zone, which is a specified volume in the model space
Modeless Model Sections KOMPAS-3D V18 now displays model sections without user needing to undertake sectioning or slicing operations.
Terminating Fillets KOMPAS-3D V18 improves the fillet operation so that users can terminate fillets at arbitrary points along the edge being filleted.
Layer Groups in 3D KOMPAS-3D V18 now lets users create groups of layers, as well as groups of layer filters in 3D space.
Cosmetic Threads KOMPAS-3D V18 now lets users specify thread standards during construction, along with standard parameters such as the nominal diameter and step.
Dimension Enhancements KOMPAS-3D V18 now places linear dimensions of circle diameter, as well as place dimensions symmetrical on the centerline.
Model Orientation Control KOMPAS-3D V18 replaces the coordinate system icon (found in the bottom left corner of the model window) with a new model orientation control.
Indicator Icons KOMPAS-3D V18 displays icons for indicating modes in the model window.
2D/3D PDF file format export KOMPAS-3D V18 now exports 3D models and 2D drawings in PDF format.

Key Features and Benefits
KOMPAS-3D V18 has a powerful functional for the management of project including several thousand sub-assemblies, parts and standard products. It supports all the capabilities of three-dimensional solid-state modelling that have become a standard for medium-level CAD/CAM designs:
Boolean operations on typical shape-generating elements
Creation of surfaces
Associative setting of elements parameters
Construction of auxiliary straight lines and planes, spatial curves (broken lines, splines, various spirals)
Creation of structural elements, i.e. chamfers, fillets, holes, stiffness elements, thin-walled shells
Special possibilities facilitating the construction of foundry moulds, i.e. pattern draft, joint lines, cavities according to the part shape (including those with the setting of shrinkage)
Functional for sheet material modelling -- commands for creating of sheet body, bends, holes, louver, fillets, punching(stamping) and cuttings in sheet body, caps closing, and also for unwrapping of obtained sheet body (including creating associative drawing of unwrapping)
Creation of any shape-generating arrays and assembly components
Inserting standards products into the model from a library, generating user model libraries
Component modelling in the context of assembly, relative determination of parts comprising the assembly
Imposition of mating for assembly components (in doing so, a possibility of automatic imposition of mating considerably increases the rate of assembly creation)
Detection of the interpenetration of parts
Special tools to simplify the work with large assemblies
Possibility of flexible editing of parts and assemblies, including with characteristic points
Re-determination of the parameters of any element on any designing stage causing a re-construction of the whole model
Support for 64-bit Operating Systems
Improvements to 3D Solid and Surface Modeling
Faster View Generation
Better Import and Export
