San Diego, March 20, 2007 - nPower Software (adivision of IntegrityWare) announces native translation of SolidWorks files directly into Autodesk® 3ds Max® / Autodesk® Viz® with the release of Power SolidWorksToMax.  Our popular Power Translators plug-in for Autodesk® 3ds Max® has become the premier solution for visualizing, animating and rendering CAD models using the powerful Autodesk® 3ds Max® platform.  Now nPower Software further facilitates the rendering of native SolidWorks models and assemblies through its new Power SolidWorksToMax translator.  Power SolidWorksToMax greatly improves the work flow efficiency for design visualization; SolidWorks users no longer have to spend days or weeks translating their high quality surface and solids models into imprecise polygonal models or intermediate formats, and then struggling to generate high quality renderings. Now with Power SolidWorksToMax, SolidWorks users can import their high quality models directly into Autodesk® 3ds Max® / Autodesk® Viz® for high quality rendering, animation, etc. without intermediate formats, and without loss of precision. Our native SolidWorks translator leverages IntegrityWare's precise geometric representation to generate extraordinarily smooth, crack free renderings without polygonal artifacts. Power SolidWorksToMax opens a streamlined, direct portal to the advanced 3D modeling and rendering environment of Autodesk® 3ds Max® / Autodesk® Viz®.

Power SolidWorksToMax is the premiere solution for Design Visualization of native SolidWorks models. 
Dealing with large data is very important, and Power SolidWorksToMax is designed to handle the large data sets typical of CAD models. Power SolidWorksToMax also contains all the necessary tools to cleanup, prepare and render SolidWorks models.  No designer who uses both SolidWorks and 3ds Max / Autodesk® Viz® should be without this essential tool.

Cleanup Tools
Power SolidWorksToMax intelligently imports the CAD data, and will automatically sew disconnected surfaces that should be sewn together.  It also includes tools  for cleaning up imported data.  You can sew together faces, flip face normals, trim and un-trim, project curves, apply materials to faces, and other editing options.  You can trim surfaces by curve projections or surface intersections.  One of the great things about Power SolidWorksToMax is that even when your SolidWorks data is not correct, you can use the powerful Power SolidWorksToMax editing tools to cleanup the models before rendering or animating.

Simon McGuire: "This is actually the best software I have seen in a long time. I work as a senior concept designer in the film industry, on very big films (currently Mission:Impossible3)
where speed is very much the order of the day. And your software has greatly increased my productivity. Even more so with CNC machining becoming more and more prevalent in the film industry. Being available to export detailed models greatly increases the turn around, especially when we have often little more than a week from design to presentation prototype."
