Logopress3for SolidWorks Offers Progressive Blank Companion

Thursday, March 1, 2012

LOGOPRESS Corp., Besancon, France, along with its North American distributor and technical center Accurate Die Design, Inc., New Berlin, WI, has introduced a new add-on to its SolidWorks-based Logopress3 die-design software. The add-on, called Progressive Blank Companion, allows die designers to model, in minutes, the 3D complex-shaped intermediate stages of a progressively formed part. Use it to design progressive, transfer and line dies, or for creating prototype tooling.

Says Ray Proeber, president of Accurate Die Design: “Designers can, very quickly, partially unform specific areas of a complex-shaped model and leave the rest of the complex shape intact.” (Proeber invites readers to view an online video illustrating the use of the new add-on at his company’s website,

Progressive Blank Companion includes tools for constraining specific edges, faces or pilot holes, and allows the designer to lock the material in a specific direction. It also provides localized information about thinning and thickening, as well as measuring stress and strain.
