Go All-Digital

Supporting the global environment we supply all software as digital downloads only. How can you participate?

We all can be part of the solution. Digital downloads are the "green" answer to demanding fewer resources for your computer's needs. What you get is software with an environmental footprint of zero while still staying up-to-date.

Digital downloads are one part of the larger trend in making our lives - both professional and personal - cleaner, more efficient, and better. Continue reading to see what else you can do to improve your green computing.

Limit screen-saver use. A screen saver does not save energy. In fact, more often than not, a screen saver not only will draw power for the monitor, but also will keep the CPU from shutting down. Instead, set your computer to turn off the monitor first, then go into standby mode after a longer period of inactivity.

Disconnect your Virtual Private Network (VPN) when not actively using your corporate network. Being connected may limit your system's ability to enter standby mode.

Many popular computer games and other third party software packages that run in the background will not allow the computer to go to sleep - even if they are paused or the active window is minimized.

Some web sites or pages that have active banners and or animated advertisements will not allow the computer to sleep on its own and must be closed, or the computer put manually into a sleep state.

Enabled power management to place your monitor, hard drives and computer into a low-power "sleep" mode after a period of inactivity.

Monitor/display sleep: Turn off after 15 minutes or less

Turn off hard drives/hard disk sleep: 15 minutes or less

System standby/sleep: After 30 minutes or less

Advanced users may wish to establish multiple power schemes to address different usage models. For example, you can create a power scheme for playing music CDs that shuts off your hard drive and monitor immediately, but never puts your system into standby mode.

To further reduce power consumption, turn off computing and peripheral devices that are not being used or being used for an extended period of time such as overnight.

Plug all your electronics into one surge protector, so you can easily switch them all off when you leave the room or go to sleep. Most power supplies (such as your cell phone charger) continue to draw power and generate heat even when not attached to a device.

Develop and communicate 3D product designs from concept to final surfaces.

Concept design

Sketching and illustration tools Capture and communicate concept design ideas freehand without switching applications. Alias includes a comprehensive set of sketching, illustration, and image editing tools—pencils, paintbrushes, airbrushes, markers, erasers, and special texture and effects brushes. The integrated 2D/3D environment enables product designers to create sketches at real-world scale and draw over imported 3D CAD data to evaluate design feasibility.
Flexible product modeling Experiment with ideas in shape and form. Pursue innovative solutions to your design challenges. Quickly explore and visualize any form using a range of 3D modeling techniques. Alias software combines fast, repeatable, curve-based modeling tools with the ability to directly edit and sculpt 3D models. Choose the best modeling technique for the task at hand. Generate multiple design iterations quickly, and make subtle corrections or radical changes with flexible tools.
Dynamic shape modeling Quickly manipulate your product model and explore shape variations on 3D forms without rebuilding geometry. Make real-time modifications and shape objects dynamically in design reviews. Manipulate a customizable lattice rig created around an object to sculpt geometry, or bend it using a curve to control deformation. You can also twist geometry around a single-axis curve, or conform it to the shape of another surface.
3D sculpting Refine your 3D models through an intuitive, iterative process. Sculpt surfaces by directly adjusting surface control vertices. Use curve-based tools to define a shape at its edges, and use direct modeling to adjust the shape at any point. Maintain complete control, achieving the exact form and surface quality you need.

Product modeling

Stitches and seams Automate the creation of stitches and seams for surfaces that will be stitched together.
Surface chain select tool Select an entire chain of surfaces with just one pick.
Automatic arrays of shapes Simplify uniform and nonuniform objects by using arrays. Use multiple methods to create arrays of lines and surfaces in both 2D and 3D.
Mathematically precise surface creation Alias includes multiple tools that help modelers and designers create mathematical shapes. For example, control pitch in the Revolve tool, which creates objects like springs and threads.

Surface Modeling & Class-A Surfacing

Multiblend tool Fill an enclosed area with 3 or more surface inputs to make smooth transitions between surfaces.

Surface Analysis

Light ray effects and reflections Create linear reflections on a model in a cylindrical tunnel of light. Study your surfaces in a virtual lighting studio. The Light Tunnel is a visual surface evaluation tool that provides a controlled lighting and reflection model to help you understand your designs better.
Shading in clay Shade your model with a low-specularity clay color to study the subtleties of surface shape and shadow. Temporarily change all of your shaders to a clay material with the Clay with Ambient Occlusion feature. When you're finished, your model goes back to its original form.
Isophotes for surface flow Use isophotes—thin, sharp lines that show the path of surface flow—to find possible errors in your design. They can show the movement of sand over a desert or represent the underlying shape of snow in a mountain range. In Alias, this surface evaluation tool highlights spots of the same brightness in your design, alerting you to possible imperfections in your model.

Design Communication & Product Visualization

Interoperability with other tools Alias interoperability tools streamline operations with other products used in the design process, including cutters, scanners, printers, meshers, and engineering applications.
Ability to switch shading assignments When designers need to look at different color combinations, shader switches provide an easy way to make color combinations and easily switch between them. These switches move easily to VRED 3D visualization software for high-quality visualization and renderings.
Variant configuration sets Capture the state of your current view, so you can get back to it whenever you want to. Share your configurations to VRED for visualization.
Interactive product visualization Evaluate design options with real-time, interactive product visualization. Tell the story of your product design in context using geometric environments.
Compelling photorealistic renderings Image-based lighting supports high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) for interactive product visualization and rendering. The result is high-resolution imagery for evaluating, presenting, and marketing your product designs.
Convenient data exchange Share your design data with downstream mechanical design and engineering software, using the DWG™ format.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY

Ibrahim, SA
I recommend everyone who wants to own a very reliable original Photoshop copy, to get it from here without even a little hesitation ... thank you for providing us with this. I wish you all the best. I give this website and the program as well 5 if not 10 stars.
Janet, GB
Great product, had a problem initially downloading, emailed customer services, they responded within two hours giving me a detailed work list, it worked, I now have office 2010 and I am thrilled with it. I will certainly use this software store in the future. Thanks Guys.
Sandra, NZ
I had some trouble downloading the software myself but the customer support team helped promptly and solved all my issues to the highest level of satisfaction. Thanks.
