Power SubD-NURBS

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.
