Ok, so there is CAD and there is CAM. Those of you who have read Jon Banquers blog have already been hammered with the term “Integrated CadCam” and the benefits. And why is Jon going on and on about this stuff? Well, because it kicks ass!
If your like me you send DXF files back and forth between your softwares all day long and when there is a change of design… well, let´s do it all over again.
If your in France then your in luck because then you can benefit from the awesomeness that TopSolid’SheetMetal 2012 offers. And if your outside of France… bad luck, because it´s not available outside of France.
If you want a glimpse of what truly inegrated CadCam for Sheet Metal can be like check out this video:
It´s not everyday we have a guestblogger here, so therefore it´s with great pleasure i present to you Ulrich Alt.
Representing West GmbH from Germany,
Ulrich Alt has an impressive twenty years experience of working with TopSolid and i guess that qualifies him as a true TopSolid veteran.
So here it is, Ulrich Alt sharing his thoughts and dreams on TopSolid.
A few weeks back i did a video on how to create you own Sheet Metal forming tool in TopSolid 7. And i mentioned that you can (and you most probably want to) easily add your own sketch to represent you brand new forming tool in the unfolding document.
But as some of you pointed out i never explained how. So here´s a short video showing how to import a DXF and use it for representing the forming tool on your unfolded sheet metal part.
So what are you wating for ? Check it out! HERE!
I like rendering. In fact i like it alot and so i´m very happy to announce that TopSolid’Image now has a home of it´s own on the international TopSolid Forum.
TopSolid’Image has been around the French forum for some time now so it´s about time the non French speaking community has a place to share knowledge, tips&tricks and discus graphics and rendering techniques in TopSolid.
Ok, so we have seen a bit of the new “Deformation” command already. And as i mentioned before the 7.6 is still in Alpha and while things are under development they are also subject to change. And in this case the new “Deformation” tool got an update called “Profile on Profile deformation” and basically it´s creating a deformation following a profile.
In the video below i modeled a tube which i then applied the deformation to using a spline. Of course it doesn´t have to be a pipe or a spline, the choice is yours.
And by the way, check out the updated Sketch Radius tool!
