Concept Design with ViaCAD Pro 9 Beta

3D printing is shaking up the do it yourself manufacturing communities.  Driven by  the lower cost cost of 3D printers as well as easy to use service bureaus, makers can now go from concept to part with little expense.

One of the features we’ve introduced in ViaCAD Pro 9 is subdivision.  Subdivsion can lower the bar to 3D modeling with simple push/pull modeling methods.  Subdivision also provides a complimentary alternative to ViaCAD’s feature based solid modeling tools that allow the user to pick the best method for a given design.

Check out this video where I use the ViaCAD Pro 9 WIP to create a baby spoon.  You may be in for a surprise at how simple and inexpensive creating plastic or silver plated versions of this spoon!
