Powerful Flat-Pattern Development Integrated into SolidWorks
New features in BlankWorks 4.3 include flange/blank synchronization with SolidWorks geometry, and blank edge smoothing to generate tangent continuous arc and line geometry and enhance the translation to the manufacturing process.
In addition to flat-pattern development and flange unfolding, BlankWorks also provides a contour plot indicating any thickening and thinning resulting from the forming process. It accounts for material stretch and deformation as well as bending and can flatten any SolidWorks geometry, and also can be used to assess the feasibility of a part for manufacturing.
