ZWorld 2019: Successful CAx Gathering and Sharing
Today, ZWorld 2019 (former GPC), an open platform for engineering sharing was held in Guangzhou, China, which was a great success attracting over 120 partners from about 30 countries, 120 customers from 4 countries, developers, experts and media friends.
With the theme “Moving to all-in-one CAx” this year, different product values in the ZWSOFT ecosystem have been shared. Let’s have quick review!
l Why all-in-one CAx?
Truman, CEO of ZWSOFT elaborated on why CAx will be ZWSOFT’s blue print for the next 20 years – we want to give customers more values, and bring partners more opportunities. He also made clear that ZWCAD, ZW3D and the upcoming CAE solutions will support and interconnect with each other, to realize all-in-one CAx.

Also, the leaders of these product lines showed the latest progress, product values and future R&D plans respectively.
ü ZWCAD: Join CAx with powerful platform
ZWCAD Product Manager Daniel rolled out the beta version of ZWCAD 2020 and unveiled important enhancements, such as the IFC/STL/DAE format support, new PDF Underlay Manger, ATIL library, the even faster performance, etc. The official version will say hi to you in June.

ü An important integration
Daniel again announced the brand-new version CAD Pockets V4, which has realized the integration of CAD Pockets, the mobile CAD viewer/editor, and CAD Chat, the web solution for teamwork. It satisfies the needs of both individual use and team collaboration, mobile and web devices. You may take the first bite of it in May this year.

l Democratizing all-in-one CAx
Can CAE be affordable, functional and integrated? Mark Vorwaller, ZWSOFT America President answered with “yes”. Why? ZWCAD and ZW3D have managed to do it. We have the accumulation. It is in the DNA of ZWSOFT.

The most exciting part of the conference is that ZWSim-EM, ZWSOFT’s first simulation product for electromagnetism, made its very debut by Dr. Xiao Tian, ZWSOFT Chief Scientist leading the CAE product line. It is going to benefit many fields like cell phone, microwave components & circuits and metamaterial with shallow learning curve, high speed and accuracy.

For the future CAx strategy, structural, thermal, fluid dynamic and multi-physics analysis are on the way, providing users with more values.
l All-in-one CAx for all-win eco-system
There were also other amazing sharings from our technical partners such as CADENAS, whose Strategic Part Management has speeds up design in ZW3D; our valuable clients Avintia and TE Connectivity, who introduced how ZWCAD satisfied their requirements; and industry experts such as CEO of e-works Dr. Pei Huang, whose insights into the digital transformation trend of product innovation were inspiring.
