Strata Cobalt 3D Mac: Intuitive, precision 2D/3D CAD on a Mac for Industrial Designers

Strata Cobalt 3D MacStrata Cobalt 3D Mac offers the most advanced feature set for the fastest and most flexible design tools ever. Developed especially for industrial designers, mechanical engineers and inventors, Cobalt offers professional power, ease of use and a tool set with parametrics on-demand.
Get Full Solid and Surface Modeling – Including NURBS – in Our Organic Workflow
Cobalt's flexible 3D modeling matches professional power with speed and ease of use in our unique Organic Workflow design process. Available for both Macintosh and Windows, Strata Cobalt 3D Mac lets creative people work without worrying about their software. Designers save time and money by moving quickly from conception through completion in the real world of last minute changes. Primarily for designers, engineers and inventors, Strata Cobalt 3D Mac provides on-demand, dimensionally constrained and equation-driven parametrics that make creating variations on a design faster and easier than ever before in 3D design software.
Expand Product Lines
Strata Cobalt 3D Mac offers parametric design variations using equations or relationships so you can quickly develop product families from one concept. Unlike traditional enterprise-based CAD programs, Cobalt's parametrics are extremely easy to use and available on-demand.
Bring Real Products to Life
Move beyond conceptual design to analyzing, marketing, manufacturing and sales. Cobalt's precise 3D data guarantees accurate drawings and compelling marketing images. Generate renderings for sales, training and promotions, export data for fabrication, or send shop drawings to manufacturing.
The Sky is No Longer the Limit
When Burt Rutan and his team at Scaled Composites focused on going to space they relied on Cobalt to realize their vision. And the result? They won the Ansari X Prize for reusable spacecraft. With Cobalt you can set your sites high – whether you're building something that's out of this world – or the next great consumer product – Cobalt is the ultimate in ease of use in precision CAD software to bring your ideas to life.
Connected to the Entire Strata Product Line – and the World
Using standard export formats, Cobalt projects to be brought into your other Strata apps to produce stunning photoreal images, expressive animations, virtual reality presentations and even augmented reality visualizations. Share, explore and realize your design vision with Strata Cobalt 3D Mac and the entire Strata line of tools.
3D Printing: True Solids & Closed Surfaces
  • Create true solids, not merely a collection of surfaces loosely knitted together.
  • Use a real solid-geometric engine that knows how to handle: common edges, tolerant edges, closed sets of analytic geometry, closed sets of NURB surfaces.
  • Start not only with a solid model, but optionally with wireframe or surfaces and still be able to bring them together as a water- tight solid.
  • Control of meshing parameters individually for each solid in the file prior to STL export so that they can be set only once or adjusted more conveniently.
  • Optionally export each part in a file to a separate file for more control while printing.
The Drafting Assistant
The Drafting Assistant makes it easy to select existing points for construction by displaying information about the pointer's location relative to the geometry.
