is best for 2D (with some basic 3D) and replaces traditional CAD such as AutoCAD. Files can be exported to almost any CAM system for post processing. Ideal for profile shapes and is a perfect companion to Plate’n’Sheet when additional drafting or shape manipulation is required.
is a specialised sheet metal development software, typically for the HVAC, plastics and insulation industries. Contains a huge array of standard parametrically modifiable shapes, each with different configurations. Can be used on its own or with CAD software for further editing of the flat patterns.
is used as a companion to modellers such as IronCAD, SolidWorks, Creo or Inventor for complex organic surfacing. Often used to repair poorly stitched surface models and IGES files. Is a great file translation and modification tool in preparation for CAM.
is the industry’s premium 3D design tool with productivity well in excess of traditional CAD modellers. Can be used with almost all CAM software. Extremely easy and comprehensive parametric solids modeling including sheet metal design and development and complex surface modeling.
