Sheet Lightning is a specialised engineering 2D/3D CAD System for creating and unfolding sheet metal designs for fabrication or manufacture. It handles cylinders, cones, square-to-round adapters, ovals, intersections and mutli-intersections.
Description: Sheet Lightning is a specialised engineering 2D/3D CAD System for creating and unfolding sheet metal designs for fabrication or manufacture. It handles everything from simple cylinders, cones, rectangular ducts and ovals, to adapters, adapting any of these section types, interections between any of these types and multi-intersections of any of these types. This enables it to handle breeches, lobster-back or segmented bend and very unusual or complex one-off designs. All pieces can have centre line offset and oblique or skewed sections. Simple designs are handled with ease through a second 'parametric' environment that requires only the typing of
key dimension values to modify the design. A library of standard designs is included. Futhermore all designs created using the full
3D system can be automatically analysed and converted to a parameteric form, then saved as extensions to the existing library.
The software integrates to general CAD systems via DXF files, exporting both 2D patterns and 3D models. The product has been proven in the worldwide market place since 1990, offering truly unique design capability. It includes a comprehesive 214 page HTML manual.
New lightning pattern found on Saturn LOS ANGELES - The United States-European Cassini spacecraft has found that lightning in Saturn's atmosphere is occurring much differently now than when Nasa's Voyagers flew by in the early 1980s, scientists said. It has also discovered a new radiation ...
