Consider Download Protection

Times have changed with how Computer Software is sold. While downloading software has its benefits, it does raise concerns with how you can reinstall the software in the future if you need to in case of computer failure or loss. That's why we have developed the Download Protection Program.

You can always download your software from our Website for up to 30 Days from purchase date for free. However, with the Download Protection Program, you can download it anytime you need to for as long as you are subscribed. You can Cancel at Anytime.

You can add Download Protection to your order after you add this item to your cart.

Keep in mind you can always keep a backup of your software yourself and this Protection is not required.

Jump into the exciting world of 3D mesh modeling, coupled with 2D drafting tools, and you’ll be hooked. Some of the features that make SharkCAD the best choice for professional CAD design:

  • Design complex organic shapes with extensive NURB surface modeling tools
  • 2D Geometric and Dimensional Constraints to manage geometrical relationships between 2D shapes

  • Push/Pull Modeling allows 3D surfaces to be edited with your mouse and cursor
  • Powerful 3D editing tools such as blending, chamfering, and shelling

  • Architectural and woodworking tools such as¬†rabbet, miter and dovetail joints
  • Extensive¬†2D drafting tools such as text, dimensions, 3D to 2D drawing, bill of materials
  • Multiple Viewports provide 2, 3 even 4 views of your design and drawing between them
  • Integrated Photo Realistic Rendering and support for Keyshot LiveLinking‚ĄĘ
  • And much more!¬†

INTUITIVE DESIGN AND EDITING UTILITIES

Drawing precisely is easy with SharkCAD! We have designed it to be user friendly and intuitive to work with.

The LogiCursor‚ĄĘ anticipates your next action and guides your cursor to potential point selections in the drawing.

The Gripper adds drag and drop capabilities to make editing designs easy breezy.

Customizable Grids add another level of ease by providing precision drag and drop in rectangular, polar (circular), and isometric layouts. 

PRECISION DRAFTING AND ANNOTATIONS

SharkCAD is also a robust design documentation tool with over 20 customizable dimension styles, including industry dimension formats. 

Other great features to help you document and annotate your projects include:

  • 26-dimension styles
  • Import bitmaps for logos and reference images
  • Spell check is provided for another level of accuracy
  • Single click Fills and Hatch¬†

ARCHITECTURAL PLANNING TOOLS

SharkCAD includes all the professional level architectural tools you and your team need to draft, print, and collaborate on projects together.

  • Architectural wall tools
  • Composite walls to show materials
  • Parametric doors and windows
  • Instant 3D walls, roofs, and floor slabs
  • Compatibility¬†with AutoCAD¬ģ DWG files
  • ACIS¬ģ-based geometry means you are creating with the same technology as software that costs thousands of dollars¬†

WOODWORKING TOOLS

SharkCAD includes tools to speed up your woodworking projects. You can quickly create otherwise tedious joints such as Dado joints and miter joints.

  • Joints including rabbet, miter, and dovetails
  • Dado joints including options for through, stopped or blind
  • Edge treatments including cove, round, bullnose, Dupont, waterfall, Ogee, and custom
  • Tongue & Groove¬†

3D MODELING TOOLS

SharkCAD provides powerful solid modeling technology found in many higher-end products. Additionally, SharkCAD delivers surface modeling tools to expand design capabilities.

  • Feature-based History Tree for editing
  • A complete design tool with extrusions, Booleans, surface modeling for more complex smooth surfaces
  • Precise geometry suitable for 'concept to manufacturing'
  • Associative surface modeling¬†

3D PRINTING TOOLS

SharkCAD includes 3D printing tools to prepare and validate your designs to make them 3D printer ready. 

3D PRINT CHECK

Checks for print viability, displaying warnings or errors to the user.

SURFACE NORMALS CHECK

Facet normals define the inside and outside areas of a part. If facet normals are pointing the wrong way, the 3D printer may have problems creating the part. This will check for problems and we have several commands that can help you fix it.

OVERHANG ANALYSIS

This will help you visually inspect modeling areas that may require structural support for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets normals are compared to the work plane direction. Angles that are less or equal to 45 degrees are highlighted as red.

WALL THICKNESS ANALYSIS

This tool provides a means to visually inspect modeling areas that may be too thin for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets are examined using ray intersections.

PREVIEW SLICES

This interface will help you to slice models given a direction and thickness. The dialog box allows for animation through the slices and single-stepping. Use to verify that a part has closed, non-overlapping sections, a requirement for 3D printing.

AUTO POSITION

The Auto Position tool translates the model to the positive x, y coordinate system at z=0.

SUPPORT STRUCTURE

Manually adds geometry to support material as it is created by the 3D printer. Support structures controls, include Attach Radius, Midpoint Radius, Base Radius, Base Thickness, and Drag base and midpoints to modify structure location.

SHOW PRINTER VOLUME

Toggles the boundary of the default 3D Printer. The volume is defined within the Printer Definitions dialog box.

PRINTER DEFINITIONS

Sets key parameters of the 3D printer, including length, width, and height of the volume accessible by the printer. The parameters in the Printer Definitions dialog box are used for commands such as 3D Print Check and Auto Position.

SHARKCAD PRO VERSION 14 IS HERE!

You are going to love the new features we have included in our latest release.

POWERPACK NOW INCLUDED!

SharkCAD v14 is packed to the gills with new features. We took our popular PowerPack add-on and baked it into our version 14 release at no additional cost to you. That adds a collection of over 70 new tools including 3D printing repair tools, new modeling tools and general utilities that will increase productivity and make your existing and future designs 3D Printer ready.

Read about some of our most exciting new features below.

UNFOLD SHEET TOOL

The Unfold sheet tool is used to flatten analytical or NURB surfaces into the xy plane.  The unfold operation works on a sheet body that is flattened by mapping it onto a plane.  The output body is a B-rep body consisting of planar faces and edges.

If the input sheet body is stretched and/or compressed during the unfolding, the shapes of features on the input body will be transferred faithfully to the output body, at the cost of some area distortion. The amount of distortion depends on the curvature of the input sheet body, as well as the constraints imposed by how faces are connected.  Developable Surfaces (with zero Gaussian curvature), such as cylinders and cones can be unfolded without any area distortion. Other curved surfaces (with non-zero Gaussian curvature) may have some distortion during unfolding.

The unfold tool is in the mechanical tool palette located under Tools in the menu bar. Selecting the tool icon prompts the user for the surface or body to unfold.  The surface to unfold fold must have zero thickness such as with a surface or mesh object.  For example, it does not accept a solid. Select any surface in the body and the results are displayed in the XY plane at z = 0.  

 

BOM FRACTION MEASUREMENTS

The Bill of Material Create BOM feature has a new option to support fraction measurements. To use this feature, select the Attributes and BOM dialog box from the Tools menu. Select your objects and associated a data set such as CutList properties. Apply to selected. Now select the Create BOM option to create a table. In the BOM Settings dialog box, select the Decimals pull down option. And then Select Fractions to display measurements as factions of feet and inches.

 

CLASH DETECTION

A ‚Äėclash‚Äô is the result of two objects in your design taking up the same space. A clash detection is the technique of identifying if, where, or how two or more parts of a grouping interfere with one another.¬† Clash Analysis is suitable for checking mate, align, and interference checks for parts and assemblies.¬† Example types of interference may be:

  • volume sharing
  • face sharing
  • edge sharing
  • vertex sharing

The Clash Detection tool will report up twenty different types of clashes.
