Live Demonstration of a Complex Strip Layout and a Die Design Using LogoPress for Solidworks
Join MetalForming magazine and Accurate Die Design Software to see—from start to finish—a live and thorough demonstration of the LogoPress DieDesign software package, Thursday, February 8, 2-3 p.m. ET. Starting with only a complex, “dumb” imported part, a nearly complete strip layout is created including cutting punches and form punches. Designing around this strip layout, a substantial portion of the die assembly is created, 2D detail drawing functionality is demonstrated, and the computer-generated Bill of Materials (BOM) for the die is inserted into a 2D drawing.
