Alibre Solid Modelling 
 

Fully parametric design

Everything in Alibre Design is parametric – driven by dimensions you specify. Beyond precision, a huge advantage of parametric modeling is that you can easily change the design by modifying the dimensions. You can also use the built-in Equation Editor to set up complex relationships, or import data from Excel to drive the design.

Infinite complexity, easily

Create parts of any complexity with advanced modeling tools. The features in Alibre Design are geared for the design of mechanical systems. Lofted parts allow you to achieve more organic shapes and transitions.    Get the 15-day free trial: https://www.alibre.com/trial

Drag and drop assembly creation

To put parts together into a mechanical system, simply drag parts onto other parts using intelligent snapping. The correct constraints are automatically

applied, and you can modify them on the fly. When you’re done, the assembly will move like it would in the real world.


 
Exploded Views
Create exploded views using the auto-explode tool or by manually exploding your assembly. Publish exploded views into a 2D drawing, or into an animated 
3D PDF so others can walk through assembly or disassembly step by step.   Get the 15-day free trial: https://www.alibre.com/trial


In-context part creation and editing
From within an assembly, you can create new parts or edit existing ones using other parts as a reference. Using a technique known as top-down design canspeed up the design process by creating parts in the context of an existing assembly.   Get the 15-day free trial: https://www.alibre.com/trial


Create complex assemblies
Alibre Design can handle large and complex mechanical systems with many hundreds of parts. However, it is not intended for assemblies with thousands of parts.   Get the 15-day free trial: https://www.alibre.com/trial


Convert a mesh to a solid – mechanical

Using the mechanical conversion type, Alibre Design will attempt to find common model features such as flat faces and holes. If successful, these features will be merged together to form a simple, clean representation of the model. This process is extremely dependant on mesh density and geometry, and willnot work for all mechanical meshes.


Analyze your design
Using tools like Interference Detection, you can quickly find problems and fix them before the first prototype. You can also find the combined physical characteristics of your model, such as its weight.   Get the 15-day free trial: https://www.alibre.com/trial
