SpaceClaimSMOPlus :3D CAD software for sheet metal and mechanics

The most intuitive direct-modeling CAD application for sheet metal and mechanical design.

SpaceClaimSMOPlus is the best CAD solution for Mechanics and Sheet Metal because of its very affordable price and ease of use.

Finally a comprehensive solution covering all tasks: preliminary drafts, quotes, design analysis, methods, industrialization, preparation, manufacturing.

SpaceClaimSMOPlus, an open and communicating CAD solution providing a top-down design approach, the most accurate and complete unfolding functions, and a true 2D/3D bidirectional associativity.

SpaceClaimSMOPlus is the only 3D modeling tool on the market that has been designed by sheet metal workers and is intended for any professional who develops cut-folded sheet metal products, regardless of their expertise in the field of 3D modeling.

SpaceClaimSMOPlus allows users to design from scratch and/or recover, repair, modify and combine numerous CAD models in neutral or native formats and with no need for re-entry or unfolding.

Usability: four functions only (Draw, Move, Fill, Combine) allow you to achieve 80% of your models.

Interoperability between multiple CAD, CAM, Analysis and PLM systems.

Support of all 3D models in native formats (SOLIDWORKS, Pro/Engineer, CATIA v4 and v5, Unigraphics, Inventor, Solid Edge, etc.) and in neutral formats (Step, Iges, SAT, XMT).

Multiple-level design: users can split and merge components and modify assembly structures according to the requirements.

Automatic calculation of flat patterns taking into account the folding technological properties.

Accessibility of SpaceClaimSMOPlus modeling and modification tools in 2D.

Main functions

Sheet metal work

  • Automatically unfold of any kind of sheet metal parts and export them in DXF/DWG files.
  • Simultaneously view both the folded model and the unfolded one in order to see the change effects in both.
  • Create folding tables.
  • Adjust thickness, bend tolerance and material properties at any time.
  • Create edge and corner reliefs, hems, hinges, punches, slots and many other forms using a library of customized forms.


  • Full part and assembly modeling.
  • Detailed drawings including all 2D/3D technical data.
  • Photorealistic rendering with Keyshot.
  • Opening/editing files from neutral and native CAD system formats.
  • Help and tutorials to help users get started.


  • Edition and preparation of data from any CAD system.
  • Easy conversion of DXF/DWG files into 3D data for machining purpose.
  • Templates, fixtures, tooling and mold design.
  • Model optimization by editing rounds and chamfers, hole sizes, draft angles.
  • Insertion of standard parts from integrated TraceParts or Cadenas libraries.
