Usability 

Experience SharkCAD Pro, a premiere 2D and 3D CAD design software available at a fraction of the cost of comparable programs. With SharkCAD Pro at your fingertips you can create and render precise 3D prototypes, architectural plans, woodworking projects, and anything else your imagination is drawn to. SharkCAD Pro is perfect for engineers, drafters, artists, mad scientists, and anyone else looking to turn a concept into a reality. Fabricating your projects is also incredibly easy – our 3D printing tools allow you to export to Shapeways or print on your own. Simply stated – for whatever project you have in mind, you can always rely on SharkCAD Pro's precise and intuitive CAD design tools. 

Modeling in 3D with SharkCAD Pro 

SharkCAD Pro is a highly versatile design product that revolutionizes the ease of 3D content creation, suitable for prototypes, 3D printing, rendering, animation, and precise manufacturing, all within one seamlessly integrated package. Some of these advanced 3D design tools are:

  • 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 

Key Features 

  • Native Translators Updated: 

SharkCAD Windows supports native translators for SolidWorks, SolidEdge, NX, Inventor, ProE, and CATIA.  These translators are now updated to support newer versions. 

  • Modeling Kernel Updated:

Dassault’s ACIS geometry engine was updated, addressing performance and stability issues for core functions such as booleans, shelling, blending, chamfering, skinning, and lofting. 

  • 2D Dimension and Constraints: 

SharkCAD now supports the D-Cubed Constraint Solver to manage 13+ dimension and geometric relationships between 2D shapes including tangent, coincident, and concentric conditions. These relationships are used to remember design intent of 2D sketches, which typically drive 3D solids. Modifying any object within a system of constraints will update all other dependent objects accordingly. 

  • Centerline Skinning: 

The Skinning tools have extended support for centerline paths.   Centerline paths allow you to control the flow between skin sections resulting in less sections needed to describe complex shapes. 

  • LightWorks PhotoRender Support of Imported Textures: 

Texture materials imported using the OBJ, 3MF, 3DS, and SketchUp data translators are now recognized using the photo rendering features of SharkCAD including screen renders as well as high resolution output files. 

  • High Resolution Printing with Textures: 

Utilizing special features in our photo rendering tools, 3D models with textures now support high resolution prints. 

  • 3D Print Tools

SharkCAD Pro includes 3D printing tools to prepare and validate designs to make them 3D printer ready. The printing tools will check for common errors that will save you time and money.

For additional printing tools to repair your designs plus even more modeling tools, be sure to check-out the PowerPack v11 add-on. It adds over 70 tools to SharkCAD Pro v11.

  • Surface From Laws: 

The surface from laws tool enables the creation of NURB shapes using parametric formulas.  Custom shapes such as paraboloids, barrel/hour glass springs, twisted tubes, and strips are now possible plus over 20 examples to spur the imagination. 

  • Stopped Chamfer: 

This new feature replaces a corner edge with a bevel, typically for decorative purpose. The bevel starts and ends along the edge by a user specified distances. 

  • Edge Treatments: 

Apples special edge treatments such as coves, rounds, Ogee, and Bullnose with support for parameters such as beads and offsets. 

  • Simplify Curves: 

Convert lines and polylines to arcs, circles, ellipses, and splines.  Useful for sharing data with plasma or water jet CNC systems or efficient extrusion into 3D solids. 

  • 3MF Import:  

The 3D Manufacturing Format (3MF) is a 3D printing format that allows design applications to send full-fidelity 3D models to other applications, platforms, services, and printers.  Supported by 3D Systems, AutoDesk, and Microsoft, this new V11 file format is in a position to be the long-term replacement of the STL. 

  • SVG Import:

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. The SVG specification provides an alternative vector format to Adobe Illustrator. 

  • Tool Icon Sizing:

You can now modify a tool palette to use larger or smaller icons. Right click on the tool bar header to display a popup menu for “Change Icon Size”. This menu now provides options for 64, 32, 24 and 16 pixel sized icons. The default icon size is 32x32.

  • Layer Duplicate: 

A new command to duplicate a layer and all the objects in that layer is now available through Concept Explorer. To access this command, place your cursor over the layer you want to duplicate, right click, and select the Duplicate command.

  • Woodworking & Architectural Tools:

SharkCAD Pro includes tools to speed up woodworking designs. You can quickly create otherwise tedious joints such as Dado joints and miter joints. The furniture that you design might just be for your new house or office. The plans for those buildings can be created with SharkCAD Pro as well as 3D Views.
