IntegrityWare Releases Power NURBS™ Advanced Creative Design Toolset

Advanced Modeling Core Brings Long-Awaited Surfacing And Solids Tools To Autodesk® 3ds max® Customers


San Diego, California (for release September 23, 2005)—nPower Software, a division of IntegrityWare, Inc, announced today the release of the much anticipated Power NURBS 1.0 product.  Power NURBS is like combing a high-end Surface Modeler and a high-end Solids Modeler with the superior animation and rendering of Autodesk® 3ds max®.  Power NURBS was shown for the first time publicly at this years International SIGGRAPH 2005 exhibition in Los Angeles (Aug 2 - Aug 4, 2005).

Power NURBS is a hybrid modeling system - based on IntegrityWare’s SOLIDS ++ Kernel - that brings the highest orders of surfacing, solids modeling, analysis, and tessellation technologies to users of the widely popular Autodesk® 3ds max® and Viz™ 3d visualization solutions.  Power NURBS provides advanced Solids Modeling tools like Booleans, shelling and variable radius filleting that are normally found only in high end CAD systems; it also provides advanced Surface Modeling tools like high continuity blending, multi-rail sweeps, and high continuity class-A surfaces normally available only in expensive Surface Modeling products.

Key functionality designed to improve design workflow includes a superior hybrid modeling paradigm that increases flexibility for building the most complex concepts, surfacing algorithms that meet the exacting standards of the automotive and aerospace industries, Intelligent Objects that retain their parameters and update automatically through design revisions, and advanced tangency controls designed to allow users to have interactive feedback and greater control over surface properties.

Power NURBS also enables designers from all markets to create solid objects that can be quickly turned into physical objects using modern prototyping techniques;  now every artist can afford to bring their own creations to life using one complete design toolset.

"Our nPower Software division gives us an immense amount of real-world feedback about how our modeling technologies solve real-world problems" said Gary Crocker, CEO of IntegrityWare Inc "Power NURBS is a great product built for today’s design professional, opening the way with a highly efficient method for designing complex surfaces and providing a low cost solution for creating concepts that meet the strict specifications required for manufacture".

nPower Software customers include engineers, designers, architects, and artists from top companies around the world like Boeing, Microsoft, Disney, SEGA, Blizzard Entertainment, Northrup Grumman, Sony, Mitsubishi, Whirlpool, Blur Studio, Fisher Price, Fox Sports, SolidWorks, Hewlett Packard and Cannon Equipment.

Quotes from Customers & Beta Testers

John Roumeliotis (KKESH Media Services):
"Amazing stuff! So simple and elegant!"

Gregor Kulikowski
(Architect bauwerkstadt.com):  "...it is amazing to work with Power NURBS, impossible models are now possible ;)"

Georhans:  "I want to...congratulate everyone in npower for a more than excellent product. not a 10 a 20!!!! Best plugin I have seen to model NURBS....no comparison (hands down!!) "

Gene Ireland:  "Overall this is the most amazing tool I've seen in a long time. The power sketch tool is the most innovative tool I've seen in any graphics tool. You and your team have done a magnificent job. Maybe now I can begin to build the things that have mystified me."

Aslan Zalikhanov:  "Thanx... for this FANTASTIC REVOLUTIONARY SOFTWARE! Incredible way to model!!! Fast, superior! So many features!"

Joe Scarr: "Awesome!...it's a fun tool to use."
