3D Model Creation
Alibre Design Professional and Expert contain a full suite of mechanical design tools aimed at precise, fast model creation.

Fully Parametric Design
Parametric design is the de facto standard for 3D mechanical design and manufacturing. If you are not using a true parametric modeler, you are wasting time. Parametric basically means that you create intelligent parts, assemblies, and drawings that can be updated later easily and with a minimum of rework. Wherever a part is used, for example in an assembly, BOM, or 2D drawing, changes will be reflected automatically.

Alibre Design is built from the ground up to be fully parametric. All modules are completely interconnected and design changes are a matter of double clicking dimensions you used to create your part originally and typing in new numbers. When you open your assembly, you will see the part has been updated for you. When you open your drawings, you will see all the views, including partial views, section views, and anything else will also be updated. The dimensions will have changed for you, and you will not waste any time needlessly redoing 2D drawings.
Part Design
Alibre Design allows you to make mechanical parts of any complexity quickly and easily. With workflows designed for quick changes and easy updating, iterating the design is an efficient process. Quickly make parts, tools, fixtures, molds, and any other surrounding manufacturing designs.

Drafting in Alibre Design™

Turning 3D parts and assemblies into 2D manufacturing drawings is straightforward and easy in Alibre Designs 2D Drafting module. Just pick which views you want to include, and let the software automatically create things like design dimensions, center marks, hole callouts, and the title block. Then refine the drawing with additional views and annotations until you are finished.

Automatic Updating

When you change your 3D model, the 2D drawing automatically updates to represent the new values. Your section views, dimensions, orthographic views, and everything else will update automatically for you so you do not have to completely redo the drawing. You can even change design dimensions from within the 2D drawing, and the 3D part will update accordingly.

View Creation Wizard

Drawings start in the Drawing View Creation wizard. The wizard guides you through the selection of a drawing template and the initial view creation, whether youre detailing an exploded view, an entire assembly, or a single part or sheet metal flat pattern. You can select whether to automatically project design dimensions, hole callouts, hidden lines, center marks, center lines, cosmetic threads, thread callouts, hole callouts, and more. You can add each of these items to an individual view later if needed as well.

Automatic Title Blocks

When you create 3D parts and assemblies, you can enter in rich information about them such as the Product it goes with, the Engineer that approved it, the Part Number, or the Description for example. You can create 2D drawing templates that take advantage of this data by using Design Properties Fields. When a Design Property Field is used in a template, it automatically pulls data from your part or assembly. This means you can create instant title blocks, and you only have to update information in one place, which dramatically cuts down on human error and hours spent.

Bill of Materials, Exploded Views, and Callouts

Alibre Design can take exploded views you create in the 3D assembly and transfer it into a drawing for you. With automatic BOM creation, you can quickly insert an exploded view and a Bill of Materials and apply callouts for the parts you want using a variety of callout styles. Its as easy as clicking on the part you want to call out.

Dimensions and Dimension Styles

Dimensioning in Alibre Design is as easy as selecting what you want to dimension. Just click on items in the drawing and then place the dimension. You can use normal or ordinate dimensions. The Dimension Styles feature gives you complete control over how your dimensions look. Easily define units, tolerances, arrow styles, symbols, alternate units, fonts, and more.

Standard View Tools

Detail views are easy to create - just draw the region you want and then click the detail view button. The view is created automatically.

Partial views allow you to keep only the portion of the view that you are interested in. Just draw the area you want to keep and use the Partial View tool.

Section views let you view the interior of your parts easily. Draw any section shape and then use the Section View tool to generate automatically updating section views.

When one of the six principal orthographic views is insufficient to define geometry, such as with inclined or oblique planes or features, you can create auxiliary views by simply selecting an edge.

When detailing long parts, especially with uniform cross sections, it is often useful to create a broken view. Using the Broken View wizard, the process is automated and instant.

Using the Datum and Feature Control Frame wizards, you can quickly and easily define geometric tolerances.

Using the Surface Finish wizard, you can quickly apply surface specifications to your drawing.

Additional Tools

Using the Weld wizard you can quickly make weld specifications.

You can apply rich text notes to your drawing, using leaders or setting the notes at an angle if you are required to.

Using the Layers dialog you can easily set layers for anything on the drawing, turn layers on and off, or create new layers and edit the existing ones.

Easily and efficiently define relationships to save time and ensure accuracy when design changes occur. Sketch Constraints, many of which get applied automatically for you, allow you to ensure real world design criteria are maintained.


Use or reuse your Excel data to drive classes of parts or entire assemblies easily.


Assembly Design

Alibre Design Expert makes combining multiple parts into an assembly easy. Drag-and-drop constraint management and real-time previews allow you to be less concerned with whats technically happening and more concerned with your design. Create exploded views you can reuse in 2D drawings, query the assemblys physical properties such as mass, detect collisions, and easily change or update parts directly from within the assembly workspace. Simulate assembly motion by clicking and dragging parts to see the real-world motion in action, before creating physical prototypes.

 


Intelligent snapping technology works for you to make quick work of assembling multiple parts into a physically accurate, moving virtual prototype.


Create exploded views automatically or manually. Transfer these views into a 2D drawing, or export an animated PDF with assembly or disassembly instructions.


Run an interference detection to ensure that all parts fit together properly, without running into each other. Detect problems in the design phase, before creating physical prototypes that have to be scrapped.

 

Sheet Metal Design

The Alibre Design sheet metal module delivers fast and easy-to-use tools for designing parts made from sheet materials. Its fully integrated into Alibre Design with a dedicated workspace so you only see tools that are relevant to sheet metal design. The Lofting Wizard makes transition pieces easy, such as square to circle profiles. With Alibre Design 2011 you will also enjoy powerful tools to let you convert normal or imported parts into unfoldable designs.

Native Design

Sheet metal design in Alibre Design is easy and powerful. Work using concepts already familiar to you, such as tabs, flanges, cuts, dimples and lofts. Every design aspect is completely editable at any time. Single-click flat patterns let you analyze your design early and often, maximizing design iterations and minimizing mistakes.

The Alibre Design sheet metal design module is perfect for enclosure design, duct work, or general component design. At any time you can unfold the model to check for design integrity and overlaps.

Lofted Transitions

Complex lofted transitions can be made easily with the Lofted Flange Wizard. The Wizard graphically guides you through the creation of complex geometry such as square-circle or oval-circle transitions. A wide variety of parameters allow you to get the geometry perfect the first time. This feature is only available in Alibre Design Expert.

Convert Solids to Sheet Metal

New in Alibre Design 2011, powerful conversion tools let you take imported files or files you design in a part workspace and convert them into native sheet metal parts you can unfold. This powerful tool makes converting your existing libraries of sheet metal STEP files, for example, quick and efficient. It also supercharges general sheet metal design, allowing completely new workflows that are typically substantially faster at accomplishing the final goal. A wizard guides you through the conversion with lots of graphical feedback. This feature is only available in Alibre Design Expert.

Instant 2D Flat Patterns

Once you ve created your sheet metal part in 3D, you can easily create an associative 2D drawing that updates if you make any changes to the 3D part later. Creating a flat pattern for a 2D drawing is as simple as selecting the Flat Pattern checkbox in the 2D Drawing creation wizard.

 

Part Libraries

Every design calls for standard part such as bolts, screws, nuts, or linear actuators. Modeling these components yourself is a waste of time, prone to error, and isnt useful since you wont be manufacturing them yourself. Alibre Design Professional and Expert include two part libraries with millions of standard components for you to download and incorporate into your design.

Save time

Even though components such as bolts are easy to model, if you have to do it all the time it can add up fast. The two part libraries that come with Alibre Design Professional and Expert cover a huge variety of industries from Aerospace to Food and Beverage. Fasteners, brackets, actuators, LEDs, consoles, and many other items are available.

Save money

By having extensive part libraries at your disposal, you can search manufacturer-specific components to determine what components can be off-the-shelf. Custom typically means expensive - if its already out there, theres no reason to remake it yourself.
