Product Information


With SharkCAD Pro (formerly Shark FX) at your fingertips, professional 3D files can be
created accurately and fabricated easily, at a fraction of the cost of comparable
premiere CAD programs. Beautifully render prototypes, architectural plans,
woodworking projects, and anything else that requires high-end visuals.
SharkCAD Pro is perfect for engineers, drafters, artists, mad scientists,
and anyone else looking to turn a concept into reality.


  • Powerful Subdivision to NURB editing tools that allow you to combine mesh and traditional
    solid modeling in one environment
  • Flexible license that allows you to install the program on multiple machines
  • Robust Architectural and Woodworking tools
  • Supports 25 file formats including SAT, IGES, STEP, STL, OBJ, VRML, and DXF/DWG
  • Advanced rendering capabilities to examine files and projects before sending them to a printer or fabricator
  • Extensive drawing capabilities like the LogiCursor™ that thinks as you draw precisely guiding your mouse and cursor in both
    the 2D and 3D space
  • Powerful 2D and 3D editing tools for intuitive workflows (blending, chamfering, shelling, text, dimensions, 3D to 2D drawing
    generation tools, bill of materials)


SharkCAD Pro includes a powerful set of 3D design tools for curve, surface, solid, and mesh modeling.

  • Associative NURBS-based surface modeling
    with skins, covers, and nets
  • History Based/Feature Tree for Rapid Iterations
  • Direct face editing for designing independent of history tree
  • Constant and variable radius blending and chamfering
  • Twist, bend, boss, hole, boolean, and shell features
  • Mass properties and interference checking
  • Automatic 3D to 2D drawing generation
  • Rendering and animation
  • 3D Printing tools to verify designs
  • KeyShot live linking support

Legendary Designer Burt Rutan
designed the SkiGull with Shark FX-AP

(Shark FX combined with AeroPack from DARCorporation)

"I am using Shark FX with AeroPack as my primary CAD system in developing my first post-retirement aircraft; a two-place, multi-surface (water, snow, grass and runway) aircraft that will have the typical performance of a good land-plane."
