Designing for manufacturing reduces errors and saves time for everyone involved. One of the most effective ways of linking CAD and fabrication is by ensuring that your flat patterns contain all the necessary manufacturing information.
This is easily achieved with the help of SPI Sheet Metal Solutions!
Both SPI SheetMetalWorks and SPI SheetMetal Inventor allow you to add manufacturing information to your model so that it is always output during unfolding. The information is displayed according to your chosen output format, e.g., as bend lines, tool IDs and other attributes for GEO files, or as layers and colors for DXF files.
