Bring your idea to market faster with the SharkCAD products: SharkCAD and SharkCAD Pro. SharkCAD is the new standard with precision 3D digital prototyping. Explore new product concepts with unprecedented ease and precisely share data with manufacturing processes. SharkCAD Pro is equiped with a full mathematical constraint engine, photorealistic rendering and animations. But if you don't need advanced modeling tools and parametric constraints, try SharkCAD.

Complete Tool Set

SharkCAD (Pro) is equipped with a complete collection of tools for advanced 2D & 3D modeling. You can draw with mathematically described geometry (NURBS) and you can use curves, surfaces and solids along and interwoven with each other. In addition, thanks to the automatic 2D drawings you will have your construction documents directly at hand with one click!

Intuitive

SharkCAD (Pro) is a very intuitive design package. It keeps the design history in a tree structure, so that you can easily find previously made changes. You can also refer to external files with the retention of the link. So if you change something in the source file, you can update this in your design directly!

3D Printing

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.

Functions

SharkCAD is equipped with the following functionalities to offer you versatile 3D modeling.

Interface

Design History
SharkCAD registrates your design history very accurately in a 'tree model'. This allows you to easily find previously made changes and, where appropriate, make a quick change to it.

Symbol Library
SharkCAD contains a very extensive symbol library with over 26,000 3D wire models to refine your design. You can choose from the following types of symbols:

  • Architectural
  • Electronic
  • Mechanical
  • Industrial

Import & Export
SharkCAD contains a lot of import and export possibilities, so it can cooperate with almost every 2D and 3D software package on the market.

In SharkCAD, you will have the following import possibilities:

  • Images: png, jpg, gif, tiff, bmp, Adobe Photoshop, pdf and PICT
  • 2D Vector: DWG, DXF, EPS and Adobe Illustrator
  • 3D CAD: STEP, ACIS, DWG, DXF, CATIA 4 and ProE. SharkCAD Pro also supports SolidWorks, SolidEdge, NX, X_T ans X_B
  • Surfaces: IGES, Rhinoceros, 3D Studio, SketchUp (Pro), STL, TrueSpace COB, VDA and WaveFront OBJ
  • Other: Surfaces/lines by a text file, surfaces using a point cloud, FACT, facet and Text

The export possibilities are also extensive:

    • Images: jpg, bmp, PICT and RAW
    • 2D Vector: DWG, DXF, EPS and Adobe Illustrator
    • 3D CAD: STEP, ACIS, DWG, DXF and CATIA 4
    • 3D Oppervlakken: IGES, STL, TrueSpace COB, VDA, WaveFront OBJ, VRML and ViewPoint Media
    • Overig: 3D PDF, FACT, Facet, Text and CGM

Custom Tool Palettes
In SharkCAD, you can edit the tool palettes and create your own ones! Very useful if you use some tools very often and want to have them by hand quickly. It can save you a lot of time!

The Gripper
An intuitive graphical widget that attaches to your objects allowing you to dynamically move, rotate, and scale objects in 2D or 3D. You can use the gripper to drag and drop copies and to stretch or modify geometry.

XRefs
Because SharkCAD uses XRefs, you can refer to external files. For example: if you have changed something in the source file, you can make it up-to-date in your design!
