Sketching and illustration tools for concept design and fast content modeling-draw and edit with integrated tools. With predictive strokes, capture lines, circles, and ellipses, and more.
Flexible modeling of products-Fast, repeatable, curve-based modeling tools allows you to edit and sculpt 3D models directly, AutoDesk Alias Concept 2015.
Fast concept modeling overview-Walk through the workflow of a quick concept model from sketch to the final concept model.
Downstream model use-Alias and VRED software easily move your data.
Improved layer color assignment-Random custom layer and layer folders color assignments.
Custom clutch keys-define key assignments for the clutch.
View options in Planarize Curve — Add options for viewing in Planarize Curve, AutoDesk Alias Concept 2015.
Improvements of surface filets— Add the option of checking Inter Continuity and Inter Tangent Angle in surface filets.
New Skin tool options-Add the Skin 2012 tool option to control the Skin surface area CV layout.
Variable degree surface fillets-In fillet surfaces you have the ability to have a variable degree.
Interface enhancements-The latest release enhancements include customizable keyboard controls, snapping, menu markings, and more about AutoDesk Alias Concept 2015.
Dynamic shape modeling-Explore shape variations on 3D shapes without rebuilding geometry quickly and manipulate your product model.
3D sculpture-3D sculpture of surfaces by direct adjustment of the vertices of the surface control. Use tools based on a curve, direct modeling, and more.
Mesh-like 3D sculpting modeling-use push-and-pull techniques to conceptualize models without the need for spline surfaces to be developed.
Exploration of concept-Explore concepts to quickly create revisions.
Better theoretical and feature lines-Check your product’s shape to follow a curve, AutoDesk Alias Concept 2015.
Non-destructive detailing-Cut, separate, and add detail to the design without affecting the sculpted shape.
Rendering and management of materials-Use real-time raytracing and allocate materials directly to Alias.
The Stitch and Seam Tool has been added to Detailed Design and Surface Analysis Deck Seam-Deck Seam (similar to a flat fell seam).
Creation of surfaces with mathematical accuracy-Access tools that help you create mathematical forms. Control pitch with the Revolve tool, for instance, and more.
Multiblend tool-Make smooth surface transitions.
Effects and reflections of light rays-Study your surfaces with the Light Tunnel tool in a virtual lighting studio.

Stitches and seams-Make stitches and seams automatically.
Surface chain select tool-Choose one pick from a chain of surfaces.
Shading in clay-Change your shaders temporarily into a material of clay. Your model returns to its original form when you’re finished.
Surface flow isophotes — reveal design motion and underlying shape— for example, sand movement or snow shape on a mountain, AutoDesk Alias Concept 2015.
Enhancements to Surface Modeling and Class-A Surface Modeling-The release for 2018 includes enhancements to Surface Filets and Curve Planarize. Data Transfer now offers import and export of STEP AP242 standard and DWG.
Interactive product visualization design communication and product visualization-evaluate design options with real-time visualizations. Use models of shading, apply color, add texture, and more, AutoDesk Alias Concept 2015.
Photorealistic renderings compelling-Visualize your product with images of high resolution.
Convenient data exchange–Share mechanical design and CAD software industrial design data, including Inventor, CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, and many others.
Interoperability with other tools-Interoperability helps streamline operations with other products that are used in the design process, such as cutters, meshers, etc.
Switch between assignments of shading-switch easily between combinations of colors.
Configuration sets of variants-Capture your current view to easily return to it.
