Power NURBS unique hybrid approach fuses the next generation NURBS surface construction technology with the industry’s leading Solids modeling technology bringing an unparalleled modeling experience to the 3ds Max Platform.
Quickly sketch out your idea with the free form NURBS curve network. Easily, blend or sweep your curves into complex interconnected organic shapes. Intuitively re-sculpt your form on the fly while changes automatically propagate through you model. Produce complex surface detail by drawing and projecting curves onto your model. Cutaway, intersect, join or Boolean surfaces and solids without having to clean up polygon errors. Feel the joy of selecting any edge or set of edges and applying numerous fillet combinations that work and with our resolution independent meshing technology never worry about poly count again. Sound too good to be true? Think again. It’s all here in Power NURBS, so stop imagining and truly experience the next generation of modeling.
Version 2.0 adds six new tools and updates many other tools in response to customer requests and a need to provide more powerful but easier to use tools. These new tools will make modeling with NURBS much easier and much more fun.
- Power Bevel - create bevels of various shapes around the edges of a surface to help them to render more realistically.
- Power 2-D Boolean - does 2-D Boolean operations between closed sketches.
- Power Surface Tools - provides surface draping and re approximation.
- Power Blend Curve - creates a 3-D blending curve between surfaces or edges. It updates when underlying curve/surfaces change.
- Power Project - creates a curve which represents the projection of a curve onto a surface or surfaces. It updates when underlying curve or surfaces change.
- Power Offset- creates offsets for the surfaces of a given object.
- A new hybrid NURBS/SOLIDS creation and editing environment
- Same higher-order surfacing as demanded by automotive and aerospace
- Intelligent objects retain parameterization and includes full, navigatable, per-object history
- Tight integration with 3ds max 6, 7 and 8 provides full artistic viewport control
- Build for Artists - you don't need to be an engineer to produce high quality results
Power NURBS Unique Features:
- Intelligent Sketcher - quickly and easily trace and design shapes
- Create Class A Surfaces for highest visual appearance
- New Technology for Blending and Sweeping to control transitions between surfaces
- Direct Curvature and Tangency manipulation for greater shape control with fewer curves
- Combine Surfaces and Solids in a seamless environment
Power NURBS is built on top of SOLIDS++ a revolutionary non-manifold topology modeling kernel. It seamlessly combines Solids and Surface modeling to provide the maximum modeling power and flexibility.Thanks to the power of SOLIDS++, it provides both solids and surface modeling for maximum creativity. You get to choose the design approach that is most comfortable to you.
