A complete set of tools that not only verify a part for 3D printing, but also includes features to identify and repair common issues with meshes, surfaces, and solids. PowerPack is compatible with ViaCAD Pro and ViaCAD 2D/3D. PowerPack v12 is included inSharkCAD Pro, SharkCAD v12.
Inspects and repairs a mesh for dangling vertices, stitch triangles, remove double faces and remove collapsed faces.
Close Simple Holes
Corrects simple holes by filling with triangles.
Fix Flipped Normals
Corrects surface normals that are not properly orientated.
Convert To Quads
Examines a triangle mesh and recreates quads were possible merging two, three or four triangles into one quad, two quads into one quad, etc.
Examines triangles and quads for small edges. Edges below the user defined tolerance are collapsed. A triangle facet with a sliver edge removes the two facets sharing the edge. A quad facet with a sliver edge is converted into a triangle.
Separate All Parts
Examines the connectivity between facets to determine individual mesh parts, separating individual meshes that come in as one mesh as a result of a file import.
Show Free Edges
Identifies free edges and gives an option to make permanent lines out of the edges.
The Select Same tool provides mask options for selecting objects including shape, color, entity type, line font, text font, and assorted colors. The Assorted Colors tool assigns up to 20 colors per group of entities selected. The tool is useful for visually identifying file import and other individual parts.
HeightMap to 3D Mesh
The HeightMap to 3D Mesh tool will convert a 2D image into a 3D object. The height is extracted from the color components by applying a grayscale conversion and mapping the results into a user supplied height value.
Unroll will flatten a developable surface such as a ruled surface into a shape that lies in the XY plane.
