solidThinking has today released solidThinking Evolve 2015, packed with features that make 3D concept creation and modeling faster, easier, and more realistic. The new release features an enhanced user interface, cutting-edge rendering technology, and a new PolyNURBS toolset.

"Evolve 2015 gave us the opportunity to focus on what matters most to our user base," commented Darren Chilton, Program Manager for solidThinking Evolve. "This release gives users more control and flexibility for efficiently creating visually stunning models. Adding polygonal modeling and state-of-the-art rendering to an already robust set of tools truly makes Evolve 2015 the Swiss army knife of modeling and rendering software."

Key enhancements for solidThinking Evolve 2015 include a new PolyNURBS toolset that allows converting a polygonal model to an organic NURBS surface with a single click using the new Nurbify tool, a completely redesigned rendering tool that creates life-like images with an enhanced user interface, enhancements to the surface moadeling toolset that create a seamless experience with greater control over modeling outcomes, an updated user interface focuses on creating more efficient workflows, and 64-bit Mac OS X compatibility.

solidThinking Evolve allows industrial designers to develop forms faster, using either a Windows PC or Mac. The software captures an initial sketch, allowing exploration of styling alternatives and the visualization of products with high-quality renderings generated in real time. It combines the modeling freedom of organic surfaces and the control of parametric solids with a unique ConstructionTree history feature.
