solidThinking Evolve

solidThinking Evolve allows industrial designers to develop forms faster, using either Windows or Mac OS X. It enables you to capture an initial sketch, explore styling alternatives, and visualize products with realistic renderings generated in real time. Evolve provides organic surface modeling and parametric control, with NURBS-based surfaces and solids and a unique ConstructionTree history feature. It frees designers from the constraints of engineering-oriented CAD tools, while allowing the export of digital models required by others in the product development process.

Please note: Paid solidThinking licenses are permanent (unless otherwise stated, as with "annual"). Teachers and schools are eligible for educational pricing.Those that purchase an academic license may receive special discounts when switching to the commercial software direct from solidThinking.

Features of solidThinking Evolve


  • Organic Surface Modeling Freedom
    State-of-the-art NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines) geometry definition methods offer the greatest flexibility and precision.
  • Fast Integrated Rendering
    Evolve’s integrated progressive rendering gives immediate feedback on the final image with a fast preview of the lighting and materials in the scene.
  • Parametric Solid Modeling Control
    Direct modeling used alone can burden you with time and labor intensive rework to accommodate even a small dimensional change.
  • Model Quality Tools
    Evolve includes a full suite of advanced analysis tools to calculate area, volume, length, and curvature, as well as a real time shaded surface analysis display system.
  • Unique ConstructionTree History
    The ConstructionTree is more than just a history of changes to your model. It provides a graphical view of the objects and actions that built your model.
  • Model Export in Multiple Formats
    Ensure simple data exchange with CAD and other tools used during the product development process using Evolve’s fast translators.
