Use MODO at the front end of your design pipeline to prototype virtually any organic surface
Power SubD-NURBS lets you export Subdivision Surface meshes from MODO into NURBS-based CAD formats that load into a wide range of CAD systems. This tool facilitates use of MODO as a concept modeler at the initial stage of the design process -- where MODO’s ability to quickly create organic shapes is especially useful. With this tool, you can freeform model a variety of design alternatives in MODO and then transfer them to your CAD system for further refinement and engineering.
Power SubD-NURBS Overview
The combination of MODO and the Power SubD-NURBS Plug-in offers new conceptual modeling opportunities for designers in the automotive, aerospace, architectural, and consumer product goods industries.
Power SubD-NURBS was developed for Luxology by IntegrityWare, located in San Diego, CA. It bridges the gap between Subdivision Surface modeling and NURBS modeling, unifying free-form conceptual design with NURBS-based operations like filleting and blending. The Plug-in is available for MODO 601 (32 and 64-bit) and MODO 701 (64-bit) for use on Windows and for Mac OS X.
How does Power SubD-NURBS for MODO fit in the CAD workflow pipeline?
The chart below shows how Power SubD-NURBS for MODO allows you to export models created in MODO and save them out as NURBS surfaces in any of these industry-standard file formats: IGES, Rhino, SAT and STEP.
Export file formats
Export to IGES (.igs), Rhino (.3dm), SAT (.sat), and STEP (.stp) formats.
Polygonal vs. subD faces
Perform two types of exports: either “one-to-one” where each face of the mesh becomes a single planar face in the CAD format, or “smooth” where subdivided faces of the mesh will be combined to define curved NURBS surfaces.
Controls the density of the resulting NURBS surfaces for improved results.
Edge Detection Angle
Determines where weighted edges or fairly sharp angles should be transferred to the resulting CAD data.
Enable Crease Edges
Checking this setting prevents the plug-in from trying to smoothly blend the continuity of surfaces that meet at sharp angles.
Get improved results when working with meshes featuring very extreme angles between quad edges.
The plug-in uses Modo materials as part of the criteria for determining the final surface breakdown in order to guarantee that there will be an edge along the boundary between different materials.
