The Very Best 3D CAD Rental Offer!!
ZW3D Rental Starts at $600 Annually!
Yes, We said "Annually'"
ZW3D also offers 6 month rental options
starting at $350.00 to
fill those temporary needs.
ZW3D is a professional 3D CAD engineering
package and it is not recommended for those who are not engineering
professionals or students with no prior 3D CAD experience. While we will
help you get started we are not equipped at this rental price to teach
you 3D CAD from scratch or engineering design. Don't let this low price
We do have training and support available for an

Ready to start your own consulting business?
ZW3D offers a professional level of 3D CAD
at a price even a wife could support.
If you are an Autodesk or PTC user and are
not happy with the subscription only this is a chance to slowly move
to a new more productive system.
Start Up? Buy one perpetual (To always have
access to your IP) and what ever amount of rentals necessary to get
the job done at hundreds not thousands. ZW3D even offers 6 month
rentals for to fill your short time needs.
We are replacing Solidworks and a surprising
amount of Fusion 360! Here is what two Fusion 360 user said
"We spoke a year and a half or so ago about
ZW3D. I took the Autodesk Fusion 360 but am becoming increasingly
unhappy with it… It’s not very productive for me, just too slow and
cumbersome to get things done quickly.
On on the strength of your recommendations I
am ready to give ZW3D Standard a shot, probably as a rental for the
first year. Bottom line is,
Fusion 360 is “free” but not really free… I
am finding that the slow, clumsy pace of design with it is
counterproductive… time is money."
Thanks much, Brian
The initial hull design was done in
Rhino, which for some reason is a standard in the boat industry. The
surface already had a few problems! It was imported into Fusion 360 and
I did some of the early concept design work, but when it came to
surfacing I hit road blocks every way I tried it.
At this time Phil was not part of the
project, but I suggested to my client that we needed Phil's help. Phil
also hit road blocks in Fusion 360 even using some of his unique re-topologizing
workflows and T-Splines.
The rest is history, as they say. Thanks
to ZW3D paired with Phil’s surfacing skills we now have tooling for the
hull created. You should see the images. Perfectly smooth
Here are some exercise that show the comparison
with Solidworks and Fusion 360. It started as a comparison of products
but soon turned into a study in 3D modeling techniques. This is where I
introduce Streamlined Sketching and Feature Based Modeling.
This is one of the more blatant examples of
feature based modeling as compare to extensive sketching.
ZW3D vs Solidworks Lesson Three
ZW3D vs Fusion 360
ZW3D vs Solidworks
is comparable to Solidworks but with some unique benefits:
- Similar in operation to Solidworks and
other Pro/e clones
- It is much more user friendly
- You can do complete projects in a
multi-object (Single Model) environment
- The drawing is integrated in the same part
or assembly file.
- Translators for all of the popular 3D CAD
systems and neutral file formats. Solidworks, Inventor, Creo, NX,
Solid Edge and Catia 4/5
- Includes PMI import for Solidworks, Creo,
NX and Catia.
- Easy to use integrated direct edit
adds many Advanced Design Features
- The best in 3D Hybrid Modeling
- Class A Free Form Surfacing and Shape
- Sheet Metal Design
- Robust Reverse Engineering (Point
- Expert Assembly and Motion
This is just a small list of the flexible
functionality offered by ZW3D. ZW3D's only comparable CAD system is NX,
at thousand less and much more friendly design environment.

Here are some great examples of ZW3D in action!
Selcuk Ozmumcu is an incredibly creative
industrial designer and is the most proficient and prolific 3D CAD
modeling I have ever met. He is a professional Alias, Catia and
Solidworks user and has now moved to ZW3D, fully utilizing the Hybrid
Modeling including Wire Frame, Surfacing and Solids.
Here is his latest creation!
He shows the design process here!
Here is more of Selcuk's work.
These were done in ZW3D and rendered with
KeyShot which is a ZW3D option. As you can see the professional
performance of ZW3D cannot be denied no matter what the cost.
