    v28 still missing thread modeling

    I have asked Alibre for this feature for many years. I have renewed maintenance repeatedly, hoping they would give me this feature. Unless Alibre brings this or something else I can't live without, I don't think I am going to renew again. It's a lot of money and I don't see anything new I...

    still no support to model real threads in AD v26 or later?

    Yes, most other 3D CAD programs such as Fusion 360 have similar thread making abilities. I don't know why this still isn't a priority for Alibre. I have been requesting it for a very long time. :(

    v27 Status?

    What new features will be added to Alibre Atom3D in v27? The reason I am asking, I am deciding if I want to renew my license.

    v27 Status?

    I have Moi3D, but I am not the artistic type so I don't use it much. I also have SelfCAD which I find to be a lot more useful for the type of work I do, but I still prefer Alibre. I bought SelfCAD as a companion to Alibre for the ability to easily make physical threads and gears. I have to...

    v27 Status?

    I am considering putting a hold on my upcoming annual maintenance until they get a physical threads/visual threads toggle. I have paid every year since my initial purchase in hopes that this feature would be released soon. Looking back, I could have saved a lot of money by waiting to renew. I...

    3D connexion space mouse

    Do your buttons for rotate and views work? What about your hotkey buttons? This is mostly the issue people are having.

    Importing STL Files

    I was wondering how well Alibre imports STL or OBJ files. I want to 3D scan some parts and import them into CAD for reverse engineering and/or modification. My 3D scanner software exports files as STL or OBJ. Thanks

    Atom3D and threads for 3D printing

    Most 3D CAD programs have a checkbox that lets you select visual threads or physical threads. I'm really surprised Alibre doesn't have this feature yet as most CAD programs have had this ability for many years now.

    Atom3D and threads for 3D printing

    We have been asking for this feature for a long time. I don't know if Alibre is actually working on it or not, but they do know we want this feature.

    SpaceMouse Buttons

    It doesn't work in Alibre because the 3DConnexion SDK hasn't been implemented in the Alibre software properly according to 3DConnexion. Alibre has since contacted 3DConnexion, so I think this might be fixed in the next release of Alibre Atom3D/Design... hopefully.

    Physical Threads for Additive Manufacturing

    I hope it happens sometime soon. I have been requesting this feature for a very long time. I know others have also.

    Physical Threads for Additive Manufacturing

    Since we are now able to 3D Print very strong and high precision parts using technologies such as SLA resin printing and SLS nylon powder printing, isn't it time that Alibre add the option for physical threads in the hole tool like many other modern 3D CAD programs? I know there are ways to...

    SpaceMouse Buttons

    3DConnexion followed up with me via email. This is what they said: Hi Jason, Wanted to send you a quick update. We have tested the latest version of Alibre Design (v25) and it seems even when trying to setup macros for the views the buttons do not work. It appears that there was a change...

    SpaceMouse Buttons

    I did this and programmed the buttons. They work sometimes and sometimes they don't. Also, the behavior is unpredictable. Sometimes they zoom in when they shouldn't be zooming and sometimes they don't do anything. For the most part, they work with the hotkeys, just very unpredictable. Not...

    SpaceMouse Buttons

    I also submitted a request with 3DConnexion. They told me they were trying to get a copy of the Alibre software for testing. I don't know if they tried to contact Alibre or not but if someone from Alibre could reach out to them, I'm sure that would move things along.
