3DQuickTools Ltd, HongKong (www.3dquicktools.com) was set up by a group of experienced tooling specialists and CAD/CAM programmers in 2002 with mission to enable tooling engineers to use the power of 3D design.

The flagship product - 3DQuickPress was introduced to the international market in 2003 and was the Certified Gold Product by SolidWorks in June 2006. In 2005, 3DQuickForm was launched and soon became one of the most preferred stamping simulation software offering accurate blank prediction at affordable price. 3DQuickMold was introduced in 2009 to the world market to compliment the need for plastic mold design solution.

3DQuickTools users are mainly coming from automobile, aircraft, electronics, and medical industries located in over 20 countries including USA, Canada, Germany, and Japan. The demand from China and India market has been increasing significantly in recent years.

DesignSense represents 3DQuickTools in India and offers the full portfolio of 3DQuickTools products. The promoters of DesignSense have been associated with 3DQuickTools technologies since its introduction in Indian market for over 5+ years and are specialized in technical support and consultancy in tooling business.

3DQuickPress® is a SolidWorks® add-on for progressive die design. With a 3D solid model of the part, a 3D strip can be created quickly and easily, and also be communicated clearly throughout the work group using the free SolidWorks eDrawings® viewer before further detailing of the die without time wasted.

Powerful Unfold, a feature recognition technology, can handle native SolidWorks® sheet metal parts for imported data, and provide a knowledge base for spring back and bend allowance. Form features can save valuable time from die designs and give them more design productivity tasks.

Strip Layout Manager provides users with intuitive tools to quickly complete the strip simply by drag & drop command with instant graphical feedback. It has extensive functionality including optimization and support for multiple parts.

Die Set Design begins after finishing the strip layout. 3DQuickPress® will automatically create all punches defined in the strip design. It supports user definable databases, tools for component placement, standard components library and support for compound die & transfer die etc.

Production-Ready-Libraries (PRL) assists users to insert home-made components into die sets structure with minimal manual operations.

3DQuickForm is a powerful SolidWorks© add-in application for inverse forming simulation. High speed, accuracy, and full associativity with SolidWorks© data are taken into consideration to make 3DQuickForm a production design tool for die designers. Users can either import different types of CAD data or build the die geometries in SolidWorks© environment for the forming studies. It helps OEM manufacturers, material suppliers, and die manufacturers to deliver precision tooling in the shortest time and with minimum physical try-outs

The built-in mesher is automatic and allows user adjustment to meet needs in different situations. Tool designers may fully concentrate on the die design processes and virtual try-outs. Simulations are run in project driven manner and support multiple projects; thus streamlining design feasibility study, process simulation, and optimization. Simulation results are displayed to show initial blank shape, different material thickness, and stress/strain distribution. Customizable material database allows designers to test their design with different materials. Fully integrated with SolidWorks©, 3DQuickForm is easy to use and rich in functions.

3DQuickMold® is a professional plastic mold design solution that helps solve very complicated plastic mold design problem. 3DQuickMold® follows the industrial practices and use the same workflow in mold shops. The ease of use and powerful mold design capabilities have been verified by the early users of 3DQuickMold®. With the introduction of 3DQuickMold® in the market for less than two years, 3DQuickMold® is leading in market acceptance and growth rate in the market. 3DQuickMold® makes itself stand out from the competition in the mold splitting functions and the ways it guides mold engineers to complete the design task with flexible workflow and high level of performance.

3DQuickEDM is running on the powerful SolidWorks CAD platform for designing electrodes. It reduces a lot of steps in traditional electrode design. Without missing any detailed design steps, the overall electrode design work can be completed quickly for workshop EDM machining requirement. The key benefit of 3DQuickEDM helps user to reduce their most demanding workload, i.e. production document management. It includes document handling, drawing & detailing, interference checking, minor design modification, etc. A set of intelligent functions guide user to select the right location for electrode, automatically search and match with electrode base against the standard fixture, automatic rounding coordinates, automatically offset electrode clearance, and auto generate electrode BOM, etc.
