Create Multiple Concepts in Minutes!
Due to Evolve’s unparalleled flexibility and construction history, Evolve users can quickly create and explore multiple iterations and make changes on the fly without any rework. Evolve enhances creativity by letting designers drive the design, not the software driving the designer.

solidThinking Evolve is an all-in-one industrial design tool that allows industrial designers to develop and explore forms faster than ever before, using either Windows or Mac OS X. It enables users to capture an initial sketch, explore styling alternatives, and visualize products with best-in-class renderings generated in real time. Evolve provides organic surface modeling and parametric solid controls, and polygonal modeling with NURBS-based surfaces and solids and a unique ConstructionTree history feature. It frees designers from the constraints of engineering-oriented CAD tools, while allowing the export of digital models required by others in the product development process.

New Features & Enhancement

Symmetry New Planar Symmetry and Radial Symmetry tools have been added to replace the Mirror and Polar Copy tools.
Loft and Sweep


The Loft and Sweep tools now provide additional feedback in cases of failure.
Length Parameter A length parameter has been added to the Line and Rounded Polyline tools.
Curve Offset When using the Curve Offset tool, you can now select surface edges directly.
Depth of Field All images which are rendered inside Evolve include a Depth Channel (tiff). This Z-depth channel can

now be saved in the Image Browser and used in post-processing tools such as Adobe Photoshop to

simulate the natural blurring of foreground and background scene elements when viewed through a

camera lens.

File of Import/Export The user interface for importing and exporting IGES and STEP files has been unified and now includes

the option to select either the Parasolid or the Core Technologies library. This eliminates the need for

two IGES and STEP options when opening or saving files
