Vacuum Wizard

The Vacuum Wizard is a plugin based 3D-Editor. Its intuitive user interface makes it the ideal tool for the design of vacuum chambers in full 3D. Vacuum wizard lets you visualize your construction: You can rotate, zoom and flip your chamber model. Once you have entered the necessary parameters which the wizard needs to build your chamber, a set of data is generated (i.e. a flange table) which contains all necessary information which the manufacturer needs to build the chamber.
