Benefits

The totally integrated CAD/CAM solution to design and manufacture sheet metal parts, from the simplest to the most complex

Based on the Parasolid exact modeler, TopSolid’Sheetmetal retrieves all the external data using powerful functions:

  • Automatic sewing - simplification of geometries
  • Multiple conversions into sheet metal, with recognition of a project with the thickness
  • Identification of folds and deformations

TopSolid’Sheetmetal integrates specific functions to:

  • Create sheet metal parts from simple or complex surfaces
  • Calculate solid and wire flat perspectives (multiple unfolding operations)

An expert solution for punching and cutting

  • Automatic machining: recognition of special tools, customizable machining macros
  • Automatic mounting of turrets and/or use of predefined turrets
  • Common splitting/cutting, shearing
  • Management of the part and off-cut evacuation modes: micro-attachments, flaps, unloaders
  • Integration of optional equipment
  • Machining strategy
  • Simple or complex nesting
  • Common cuts
  • Customizable post-processors

Data centralization for higher productivity

  • Integrated operations manager
  • Centralization of the parts to be produced
  • Optimized production launch
  • Management of traceability (marking of the sheet metal and parts)
  • Choice of the best type of nesting
  • Creation of workshop data sheets
  • Label management
