Modeling of sheet metal parts

Linking directly to production saves time and reduces errors

Plechy3Developed shape, fully staffed information and bending tools can be generated from the model of sheet metal parts directly, without the need to create a drawing. And this in a form ready for direct use in a machine or processing CAM system. When you create flat pattern parts are generated variables external dimensions that have built control limits.

Unmatched processing of foreign data

Plech2Only Solid Edge can read the sheet metal parts created in other systems, and work with them as effectively as its own data, including changes in the parameters of bends, sheet thickness and the like. This leads to a reduction in the cost of changes to make more efficient use of data suppliers.

Synchronous technology for sheet metal components

PlechyUsing synchronous technology for construction of sheet metal components represents an important step in the utilization of this technology even beyond the current modeling of parts and assemblies, and determines its use in other areas of the structure. With the integration of synchronous technology environment for designing sheet metal parts, the user incredibly easy to create models using a minimum of orders in record time. Unique features allow modeling of new components using "drag and drop" without much consideration as to create a model.

Process-oriented elements

Part of Solid Edge is a special environment that is dedicated to working with components manufactured by bending and shaping metal. This environment simulates the specific processes that are typical for the production of sheet metal parts, and simplifies and accelerates. Among the features specific to this environment include cutting the material in the folds perpendicular to the surface, hem, embossed, vent, or pulling between profiles leading to developable shape with the possibility of generating triangulation lines. Profiled bend like rim can be guided along a curved edge. A separate group of commands to support the technology. Directly in the model, it is possible just to generate bend table and then determine the order of their creation. When you create flat pattern parts are generated variables external dimensions that have built control limits.
