Evolve is a high quality 3D Hybrid Modeling and Rendering environment that enables industrial designers to evaluate, research and visualize various designs faster than ever before. Evolve runs on both Mac OS X and Windows.
solidThinking Evolve is an all-in-one industrial design tool that allows industrial designers to develop and explore forms faster than ever before, using either Windows or Mac OS X. It enables users to capture an initial sketch, explore styling alternatives, and visualize products with best-in-class renderings generated in real time.
Evolve provides organic surface modeling and parametric solid controls, and polygonal modeling with NURBS-based surfaces and solids and a unique ConstructionTree history feature. It frees designers from the constraints of engineering-oriented CAD tools, while allowing the export of digital models required by others in the product development process.
Created by designers for designers, Evolve provides free form surfacing, solid modeling, and polygonal modeling in a single package. This allows the best approach to be applied to each aspect of a design. Evolve allows users to mix and match modeling techniques on the fly without any additional plugins.
Make Changes Effortlessly
The ConstructionTree history allows users to edit a point or a parameter and then let Evolve automatically update the entire model. Typically surface modelers require the recreation of an entire model to accommodate a dimensional change.
Quickly test and evaluate designs, materials, or environments in real-time while developing your model. Evolve offers users the ability to create photorealistic images and animation with a built-in renderer.
Best-in-class Construction History
Advanced NURBS Modeling
Evolve uses NURBS (Non Uniform Rational B-Splines) as its geometry type. This curve and surface definition method offers the greatest flexibility and precision. NURBS are capable of representing any desired shape, both analytic and free form, and their algorithms are extremely fast and stable. Full NURBS-based modeling, construction history, and the most advanced modeling tools make Evolve a matchless tool for designers.
Polygonal Modeling and Subdivision Surfaces
Evolve also features an advanced polygonal modeler with support of n-side polygons. It is possible to create and extrude polygons, split faces and edges, refine, decimate, and perform many other operations. The unique implementation of interactive subdivision surfaces with construction history gives the user maximum power for refinement and smoothing of polygonal meshes.
Real-Time Photo Realistic Rendering
Take advantage of a truly comprehensive rendering system integrating all industry leading rendering techniques. The most efficient memory management functions, unlimited output resolution, as well as multi-threaded and multi-processor renderings makes Evolve the perfect tool for generating photo realistic images. Real-time rendering further improves interactivity during the review and visualization phases of design.
Take your design presentations to the next level by creating photo realistic animations. Create videos or Quicktime VR movies to communicate complex ideas, or import H3D files to produce stunning simulations.
