Alibre Design 11.0
(ab September 2008)
Alibre proudly offers this first look at the latest installment of its
ground-breaking 3D CAD, Alibre Design version 11, due for release in
latest performance enhancements and additions make this the most
responsive Alibre Design to date. A laundry-list of new features
drastically reduce the time it takes to perform common modeling tasks,
and expanded customization options give the user control over the design
interface. Both 2D and assembly modeling performance have taken another
leap forward from their predecessor Alibre Design 10.0, while the
addition of the Alibre Vault now provides true, completely integrated,
data and process management for all your files and workflows.
the leaders in Personal CAD/CAM comes Alibre Design 11.0, another major
innovation in opening up professional and affordable 3D design to

- Integrated PDM with the new
Alibre Vault: The new Alibre Vault by M-Files offers true,
completely integrated, data and process management for all your files
and workflows. The Alibre Vault completely integrates within Windows
Explorer and Alibre Design, making it a recognizable interface for any
user. File management is made easy by supporting all file types,
security and collaboration options keep your files safe but accessible,
and the many customizable search options save countless amounts of
time from being spent on data hunting.
This latest addition to Alibre Design is a true PDM integrated
solution. For a better idea of what the Alibre Vault offers,
- Drag and Drop Constraint
Mode: A powerful new constraint application mode using
visual feedback and real-time editing to apply constraints. Simply
drag a part near another and the system previews applicable
constraints on screen and allows easy changes and adjustments, like
flip or rotate, before applying constraints.
- External Thread
Representation: Get industry standard 2D drawings of
external threads without modeling the threads in 3D. Just specify
thread data while modeling simplified 3D geometry and this information
is used to create the 2D drawing, lowering you modeling overhead and
generating better drawings.
- Automatic Title Blocks:
2D Drawing Templates can be created which contain intelligent
links that read data from part and assembly files. Title blocks and
other drawing fields are automatically filled out, substantially
reducing drawing time and errors. If the data in the source drawing or
assembly file changes, these fields update automatically.
- Un-sectioning Parts in
2D: You can now select the parts in 2D Section Views that
won't be sectioned, providing full user control over which parts are
sectioned and which are not.
- Enhanced View Rotation:
New view rotation mode that automatically uses the mouse
location as the center of view rotation. If the mouse hovers over part
geometry while view rotation is invoked, the mouse location becomes
the center of view rotation, saving time by eliminating the need to
zoom in or out to get the desired view orientation.
- Dimension Alignment:
2D dimensions now snap to each other to make precisely lining
up dimensions fast and easy. Works with vertical, horizontal, and
- Better Part Dragging with
Assembly Constraints: Dragging parts within assemblies
while honoring constraints behaves more naturally. New constraint
interpretation means it is no longer required to change between move
and rotate tools to get the desired movement.
- Customizable and Easier to
Use: You can now customize the sizes and the colors of
several items, including endpoint nodes and inferred sketch projection
lines, making sketching easier and putting less strain on your eyes.
Also, midpoint nodes are now inferred and appear automatically on line
and arc segments by hovering the mouse.
- Further Improvements to
2D and Assembly Performance: 2D performance in Alibre
Design 11.0 is substantially upgraded over previous versions. Fast
Views, introduced in Alibre Design 10.0, are now on average 4 times
faster during view projection than in previous versions. You wait
seconds, not minutes, to see your drawings.
Alibre Design 11.0 also offers huge speed improvements for nearly all
common tasks in assemblies. Over 30 common tasks, such as editing
parts or creating section views, have been made at least twice as fast
on average. Combined, these represent a substantially more productive
modeling and assembly experience.
