FlexiDesign is an easy to use, legacy 2D drawing to feature-based, parametric 3D model, conversion software that puts the CAD designer in full control. A few highlights of FlexiDesign:

Automatic view detection
FlexiDesign accepts up to 6 orthographic views and can detect those views automatically with no manual intervention necessary.

Automatic alignment of multiple views

If the views in the drawing are in first-angle or third-angle projection then FlexiDesign will automatically align the multiple views, each with their own coordinate system.

Automatic correction of simple drawing errors

FlexiDesign automatically corrects many simple drawing errors like ignoring overlapping lines and disjoint entities. For other errors such as open profiles, misaligned views, views of different sizes FlexiDesign will prompt the user to fix the drawing in-process before proceeding.

Automatic feature detection

FlexiDesign will automatically detect numerous feature types (Extrusion Joins, Extrusion Cuts, Revolve Joins, ,Revolve Cuts, Simple Holes, Complex Holes (counterbore, countersink, tapped, tapered), Polar Hole Patterns, Rectangular Hole Patterns, Fillets Chamfers) from the input 2D views.

Add or Modify features on the fly

Did FlexiDesign miss a feature? Don’t like the features FlexiDesign generated for your drawing? FlexiDesign enables the user to add a feature or modify a FlexiDesign generated feature on the fly by providing minimal input (e.g. profile and depth). FlexiDesign still runs its algorithms to automatically locate and orient your feature, assuring the fastest way to add features to the 3D model.

Preview 3D model during conversion process

FlexiDesign allows the user to preview the model being created in 2D as well as 3D enabling the user to make the most knowledgeable judgment on the validity of the final 3D model.
