- 3DESIGN: 3D parametric CAD software enabling clients to design and create as they would at the workbench. Parametric technology allows the software to save each parameter of the design in the History Tree. This parameter can then be modified at any stage of the design process, without having to start from scratch. It is a great time saving factor when designers have deadlines to reach and quick changes to make.
- 3SHAPER: this plug-in allows for organic modelling and the freedom to create animals and object d’art. This module works within the same interface as 3DESIGN making it an easy transition from one module to the other.

Training Sessions:
- Online: each session is recorded for the client to download and review at their convenience. This can be group or one-to-one.
- Face-to-face: this gives us the opportunity to cover aspects of the software that the client maybe struggling with or needs to revisit with the help of an expert.
- Top-up: For those who are struggling with time and can only do 30 mins to 2 hours max.

Support Packages:
- Remote control: we log onto our client’s computer to resolve the issue.
- Creation of mini videos and tutorials when clients get stuck on a design.
- Ongoing phone, WhatsApp and email support to ensure our clients are feeling confident every step of the way.
