BY HEXAGON Software Title

DESIGNER CAD software – bridging the gap between design and manufacturing.

It is purpose-built for smarter manufacturing, providing a variety of solid, surface, sheet metal modelling capabilities, creation of 2D drawings, electrode design, design automation through macros and scripting, and a link to Hexagon CAM software and reverse engineering functionalities.


DESIGNER’s powerful design and detailing capabilities open up new possibilities for smarter manufacturing for a wide range of manufacturers. It also provides a link to all Hexagon CAM software including EDGECAM, ALPHACAM, RADAN & WORKNC. The workflow linking DESIGNER with CAM software has been streamlined, ensuring a simple and automated process.


DESIGNER offers an optional reverse engineering solution, REcreate. It provides a suite of dedicated functionality aimed at creating a full CAD model from a physical part. Either scan directly into the application, or import scan data in any format.

DESIGNER Sheet Metal

DESIGNER’s dedicated Sheet Metal module brings powerful sheet metal expertise. It enables parts to be redesigned from solid or surface models to sheet metal parts, ready for manufacturing.


DESIGNER’s Surfaces module enables the creation and manipulation of complex, freeform surfaces such as lofted, helical, swept and tangential surfaces. Included are more specialised surface creation tools including splitting parts into cavity and core, parting and split plane and more.

DESIGNER Electrode Design

DESIGNER has an optional Electrode Design module. It provides dedicated and intuitive functions designed by engineers with experience in the mould and die industry.
