It allows concurrent engineering between the folded or unfolded representation of the part. CATIA - Sheetmetal Design 1 (SM1) can be cooperatively used with other current or future applications of CATIA Version 5 like part design, assembly design and drawing generation. As sheetmetal design may start from scratch or from an existing solid, communication between suppliers and contractors is empowered. CATIA ? Sheetmetal Design 1 (SM1) offers the same ease-of-use and user interface consistency as all CATIA V5 applications to drastically reduce training cycle time and unleash designer creativity. It is available as a native Windows interface across Windows and UNIX for companies running mixed networks. Product Highlights Dedicated Sheetmetal feature-based modeling Allows Folding/unfolding of the sheetmetal part Includes Reverse engineering from drafting Concurrent engineering between unfolded and folded part representations Access to company-defined bending tables Dedicated drawing extraction capability includes unfolded view and user defined extraction settings Compliance with industry standards such as DXF Product Key Customer Benefits Feature-based Modeling CATIA Sheetmetal Design 1 (SM1) offers users design flexibility and functionality for the creation of sheetmetal parts and assemblies. Designs can be created from scratch or within an assembly context. Dedicated sheetmetal features including Wall (based on a user defined plane or perpendicular to an existing wall), Bend, Relief (rectangular and round), Wall cut (round, oblong), and Thin extrude are provided. Designs can be produced from an existing solid, using bend and wall auto-recognition and auto bend creation from a sharp edge.
