LVD Company nv has added a new module to its CADMAN® Suite of programming and shop management software. CADMAN-SDI (Smart Drawing Importer) simplifies 2D and 3D CAD file import and calculation of cost drivers so users can more quickly and accurately create job estimates. CADMAN-SDI includes BricsCAD® Sheet Metal, a robust 3D direct modeling CAD package. BricsCAD allows the 3D drawing to be reviewed in detail, modified or corrected as required.

BricsCAD Sheet Metal provides recognition of features, allows the user to modify a junction into a bend, change overlaps, create notches and lofted bends, program parametric parts and even import entire assemblies. CADMAN-SDI adds yet more functionality to the integrated suite of database-driven CADMAN products designed to help users optimize programming and maximize throughput in the workshop.

SMART IMPORT

A CAD drawing file is imported into the module with simple drag and drop action. A file can be imported part by part or in a batch of parts using STEP, SAT, IGIS, DXF, DWG, SLDPRT, IPT, STL, WMF or a number of other file formats. Once imported, the file is converted to OSM (Open Sheet Metal) format and stored in the central CADMAN database.

CADMAN-SDI displays key cost driver information obtained from the 2D/3D file import and automatically saves the converted OSM file directly into the CADMAN database. The stored OSM files are also immediately accessible for all other modules of the CADMAN Suite for fast and efficient generation of laser, punching, bending programs and jobs scheduling.

ALL THE COST DETAILS NEEDED

CADMAN®-SDI provides all the details needed to create an accurate cost estimate, including all relevant part information, such as part name, 3D and unfolded 2D drawing, material type and thickness, as well as all cost drivers such as contour length, netto and bruto part area, bounding box 2D, 3D outside dimension, the mass of the part, cutting length, number of contours, number of bends, and more. All the data is visible at a glance on the control screen. Data can also be exported to an Excel, PDF, XML or CSV file.
