nPower Software has released Power Solids 1.1 and Power Booleans 1.1 with support for Rhino 2.0 and 3.0. Power Booleans supports polygonal and NURBS Booleans, while Power Solids extends Rhino to support additional solids modeling functionality. The company says the combination of Rhino with Power Solids provides a geometric modeling tool set equivalent or superior to those found in high-end and high-priced solids modeling products.
Power Solids includes three new Rhino tools: Filleting Tool, Shelling Tool, and Boolean Tree Tool.
The Filleting Tool is designed to handle difficult large radius, self-intersection and roll over cases and to save fillet data for easy modification/revision. Features include variable radius, constant radius, and constant distance tracing; fillet/chamfer; and circular, linear and blend curve fillet surface cross sections.
The Shelling Tool features solid offset with extension or rounding and shelling with extensions or rounding.
The Boolean Tree Tool saves Boolean history to facilitate CSG tree editing and allows for the union, difference and intersection of solids and surfaces, merge overlapping of surfaces to create solids, and automatic filleting of intersection, operator or operand edges.
Power Booleans is designed to produce quality STL files and allows for union difference and intersection of solids, surfaces and polygons; high-quality mesh generation with optional polygon reduction; NURBS Booleans and polygonal Booleans.
Power Solids is priced at $295, Power Booleans is priced at $195 and the combo goes for $395.
