COPRA® MetalBender Analyser-i
COPRA® MetalBender Analyser-i helps you perform precise flat-pattern calculations with a single button click. The Analyser-i is the logical enhancement of the flat-pattern calculator included in Autodesk® Inventor® software.

Newly created, imported rounded, sharp-edged or combined parts can be easily unfolded. The flat pattern calculation inside the Inventor workflow provides an associative flat pattern. Extended calculation methods, like DIN, machine data and neutral line as well as automatic corner and bending zone relief cuts are also available. Flat patterns can be easily exported via the interfaces to DXF, Cybelec and ToPs. Tools for optimizing laser cutting and calculating tube laser cutting are also included.

Benefits:

  • Flat Pattern Unfolding
  • Calculation of sharp-edged 3D Solids
  • Calculation of Sheet Metal Parts imported into Inventor

Target Industry Segments:  Automobile, Construction, Aviation, Storage

Compatibility:  Autodesk® Inventor® 2014, Autodesk® Inventor® 2013, Autodesk® Inventor® 2012, Autodesk® Inventor® 2011

Integration: Window presence inside the Autodesk product

Languages: English, German

Countries: Worldwide

COPRA® MetalBender TD-i
COPRA® MetalBender TD-i provides additional functionality to maximize efficient sheet metal design in Autodesk® Inventor® software. All COPRA® MetalBender commands are integrated in the native Inventor “SheetMetal” environment and easy to use. For Parametric Transitions, basic contours like circle, rectangle and filleted rectangle are available and can be combined with the required dimensions. Depending on the defined cut positions, different parts can be obtained all automatically positioned in an assembly. Individual flat patterns can be created for each single part, and with the help of ToPs-Interface, the information on the flat pattern can be exported to the special ToPs format.

Ne cessary modifications of the full parametrical model can quickly and easily be achieved by changing the dimensions of the defining parameters in a dialogue box. The assembly with all associated parts will be automatically updated to the new dimensions. The additional TD-i library consists of standard parts as used in HVAC applications. For heating, air-conditioning and ventilation application, where it is often necessary to design 3D parts consisting of two different contours, a special sheet metal lofting command is available.

Benefits:

  • Sheet Metal Lofting
  • Transitions
  • Sheet Metal Part Library
