3DQuickPress® is a SOLIDWORKS® add-on for progressive die design. With a 3D solid model of the part, a 3D strip can be created quickly and easily, and also be communicated clearly throughout the workgroup using the free SOLIDWORKS eDrawings® viewer before further detailing of the die without time wasted.
Powerful Unfold, a feature recognition technology, can handle native SOLIDWORKS® sheet metal parts for imported data, and provide a knowledge base for spring back and bend allowance. Form features can save valuable time from die designs and give them more design productivity tasks.
Strip Layout Manager provides users with intuitive tools to quickly complete the strip simply by drag & drop command with instant graphical feedback.

Today’s requirements for progressive die making are becoming more demanding with higher parts quality, shorter delivery times and more complicated product design. Using the conventional 2D approaches can neither speed up the process nor minimize the engineering errors. 3DQuickStrip® is the latest innovation to help metal manufacturers to communicate better with both the buyers and the tooling operations.
Developed on SOLIDWORKS® technology, 3DQuickStrip® imports different types of 3D data into the system for the unfolding, bending and cutting operations. Fully auto or manual mode can be chosen in the powerful unfold operation. Advanced feature recognition can handle complex sheet metal features. User Assisted Recognition can handle more tricky form features and secure a steady and fast design process. High-performance 3D strip layout makes 3DQuickStrip® a leader among all the competitors. Users may control the bending sequence by a few mouse-clicks on the Strip Layout Manager. With minimal 3D modeling skills, users can learn how to use 3DQuickStrip® in a very short time. 3DQuickStrip® can be upgraded and work with other users of 3DQuickPress® or smoothly interfaced to user’s existing 2D punch & die design environment.

3DQuickForm is a powerful SOLIDWORKS© add-in application for inverse forming simulation. High speed, accuracy, and full associativity with SOLIDWORKS© data are taken into consideration to make 3DQuickForm a production design tool for die designers. Users can either import different types of CAD data or build the die geometries in SOLIDWORKS© environment for the forming studies. It helps OEM manufacturers, material suppliers, and die manufacturers to deliver precision tooling in the shortest time and with minimum physical try-outs
The built-in mesher is automatic and allows user adjustment to meet needs in different situations. Tool designers may fully concentrate on the die design processes and virtual try-outs. Simulations are run in a project-driven manner and support multiple projects; thus streamlining design feasibility study, process simulation, and optimization. Simulation results are displayed to show the initial blank shape, different material thickness, and stress/strain distribution. A customizable material database allows designers to test their designs with different materials. Fully integrated with SOLIDWORKS©, 3DQuickForm is easy to use and rich in functions.
Full range of CAD interfaces to read both imported 3D data or native data
Special modeling tools for cleaning data
Powerful modeling functions
Fast & accurate blank shape generation
Short learning curve
Get blank contours of parts that cannot be folded/unstamped in traditional ways
Fully integrated with SOLIDWORKS to allow strip design in a fully associative process
Better communication results in fewer engineering changes
Quickly compare multiple solutions for a stamped component
Handle complex blank shapes and forming features
Based on ESI technologies in metal forming
Facilitate the material usage calculation in the quotation phase
Support fixed edges/faces
Graphical plots of thinning and thickening of materials, stress/strain, etc.
Customizable material database

3DQuickMold® is a professional plastic mold design solution. The prime objective of developing 3DQuickMold® is to solve a very complicated plastic mold design problem. 3DQuickMold® follows the industrial practices and uses the same workflow in mold shops. The ease of use and powerful mold design capabilities have been verified by the early users of 3DQuickMold®. With the introduction of 3DQuickMold® in the market for less than two years, 3DQuickMold® is leading in market acceptance and growth rate in the market. 3DQuickMold® makes itself stand out from the competition in the mold splitting functions and the ways it guides mold engineers to complete the design task.
3D QuickTools Ltd. takes up the international distribution for 3DQuickMold to compliment its own die design solutions in order to provide a complete mold and die solution to worldwide customers.

Mold design engineers spend a big ratio of the design time in Splitting Mold. 3DQuickMold® combines the experience of mold makers and the powerful modeling functions of SOLIDWORKS® and results in a very fast and direct mold split feature in the system.
Support multiple and/or different parts in the single cavity
Support predefined slides & inserts before the mold splitting
Support swap parts and automatic update of the mold structure
3DQuickMold® allows mold designers to choose multiple workflows. Users may choose a top-down or bottom-up approach. Top-down approach allows user to do core and cavity layout, selection of mold structures, before the mold split operation. It aids the generation of bills of materials and facilitates the early purchase planning in the whole design cycle as the result of 3D parametric design. Bottom-up approach will guide user to complete the mold split operation before going to the processes of core and cavity layout, and selection of mold structure. This approach is suitable for very complex mold design. Professional plastic mold design solution should provide automation, and at the same time allows users to adjust and fine-tune to handle new mold design. 3DQuickMold® provides this flexibility in different stages during the mold design cycle.
3DQuickMold® is capable to handle very complicate and complex mold structures with all the details of mold splits, ejectors, cooling channels, and electrodes without scarifying the performance expectation of plastic mold designers. 3DQuickMold® customized the SOLIDWORKS® environment to achieve this optimized result. Field reports showed that the speed of 3DQuickMold® in handling complex mold design is equally good or even better than the most popular plastic mold design solution in the high-end CAD markets.
