Alibre Design is 3D CAD software with 20 years of development that’s easy to learn, easy to use, precise, uncluttered, extensible, and inexpensive.

Comprehensive 3D toolset

Create 3D parts with unlimited complexity for whatever application you need. Skip dozens of extra clicks, poor sketching environments, and strict modeling paradigms for a straightforward modeling experience. Precision is built in, and changes are easy.

Create complex assemblies

Test fit, function, and form before going to production. Easy drag-and-drop constraint creation and WYSIWYG tools get the work done fast. Create parts in an assembly based on other parts, make exploded views, and perform analyses.

Precision sheet design

A dedicated Sheet Metal Modeling environment provides you with everything you need to model nearly any sheet metal design, including lofted transitions and closed corners.  Convert regular or imported solid models into sheet metal models. View flat patterns with one click, and then take it into 2D for manufacturing.

Why we’re different

Focus

Alibre Design is not for every designer, and we like it that way. We focus on the tools that most people use. This keeps usability high, training fast, and cost of ownership low.

Easy to work with

Our sales, support, licensing, and pricing policies are all designed to make your life easier. If you have a special need, let us see how we can help.

Access is important to us

Our mission is to make professional design tools available to everyone that needs them. That’s why our cost of ownership is lower than other CAD packages, and our training is free.

“The simplicity, power, and flexibility of Alibre Design makes it the first tool I reach for in my role as a consulting mechanical design, development, and manufacturing engineer.” Lew Merrick

PE, Consultant

“With the ability to share our concepts and ideas with our customers using 3D images, our ability to understand and provide the customers exactly what they need has been very much improved. We are tapping into new market areas that we simply could not have competed in before we started using Alibre Design. I am very satisfied.” Cincinnati Automation
