Sheet metal design is an important part of delivering equipment chassis, frames, brackets, and enclosures
PTC CADDS 5 Sheet Metal Design Option automates the design and development of sheet metal components and folded plates. In a single application you can create your sheet metal design from a simple model, produce flat-patterns, using attributes such as thickness, bend angles and bend allowance, and deliver the finished, fully-featured 3D solid model, including manufacturing data. PTC CADDS 5 Sheet Metal Design Option saves time and helps you optimize your design and manufacturing processes.
