New 3D Unfolding Module in Jetcam Nesting Software

June 17, 2024

Jetcam-3D-unfloding-module-nesting-softwareJetcam International has launched its new 3D Unfolding software module, an optional extension to the Jetcam Expert nesting software and designed to streamline the process of converting a range of 3D CAD file formats to flattened 2D patterns.

The Jetcam 3D Unfolding module, developed in partnership with AutoPol, automates the flattening of 3D models during the CAD import process, handling everything from simple profiles to advanced pieces with single-curved and free-form surfaces. It seamlessly integrates with most popular CAD formats, providing outputs that immediately are ready for production, and works in conjunction with a CAD interface to pass all the required information to JETCAM Expert, allowing for automatic CAD import. The resulting tooled component files then are available for nesting.

The module can be used with a single Jetcam Expert system or licensed across multiple systems, also providing options for standalone and network configurations. For production readiness, output from the unfolding process can include important production data such as bend lines, angles and tool information, with extensive support for various file import and export formats.

“With Jetcam 3D Unfolding, manufacturers can expect a significant reduction in preparation time, eliminating the need for manual data entry and ensuring a direct path from design to production,” says Martin Bailey, Jetcam International managing director.

The software is available for immediate release and is available in various licensing options including cloud-based and on-premise solutions. And, stay tuned for coming module enhancements, including support for automatic unfolding of complete assemblies.
