For Inventor®

COPRA® MetalBender TD-i

  • Automatic creation of sheet metal parts
  • All designed parts are fully parametric
  • Automatic creation of the corresponding assembly
  • Flat pattern calculation for each individual part
  • All parameters of the flat pattern calculation for each individual part are pre-set.

COPRA® MetalBender Analyser-i

  • Flat pattern calculation directly inside the Inventor workflow, no external add-on package, no need for data conversion
  • Unfolding of solids created inside Inventor®
  • Unfolding of sharp-edged transitions
  • Automatic unfolding with or without bending technology (Calculation of the shortening factor or K-factor)
  • Shown in the unfolder window in Inventor® and exportable as a separate design
  • Corner and bending zone relief cuts
  • Interface for Cybelec / Delem / ToPs
  • Calculation mode according to DIN, machine data and position of the neutral line
  • Automatic calculation of the overbend angles taking the material's spring-back characteristics into account (can be chosen according to various methods)
  • Intersection point optimisation for laser manufacture can be selected
  • Smoothening of the unfolding
  • Transfer as DXF file to NC programs
  • Automatic corner recognition also for solids imported from other CAD-systems
  • Associativity solid-unfolding
  • Selection of bending tools for the design process
  • Flat pattern meets manufacturing standards
