Hybrid Modeling with ZW3D: A Highly Flexible Modeling Technology

Date: Issue 111 - December 2021

If you are working on product design with a 3D CAD system, you must know the technology of hybrid modeling, which combines surface modeling and solid modeling methods in one CAD system, and is usually applied to product prototype design or structural design. However, it’s more than a simple combination. What’s the meaning of “hybrid”? Have you ever probed into this concept? Are the current solutions of hybrid modeling “hybrid” enough?
