Sheet Metal Tooled Features Available for Download as 3D SolidWorks files
Nashua, NH, August 10, 2011: Rapid Sheet Metal Inc, specializing in the rapid turnaround of sheet metal prototypes, is excited to announce the release of their online 3D tooling library of features such as embosses, louvers and half shears. SolidWorks users can now download a SolidWorks model of their specific tooled feature and immediately integrate it into the design they are creating on their desktop. Recognizing many mechanical engineers don’t have the time to design their own basic features for sheet metal parts, Rapid Sheet Metal is providing tooling designs to ease the pain.
“By making use of Rapid’s library of sheet metal tooled features, our customers will be able to save time and potentially money in both the design and fabrication processes.” said James Jacobs, President of Rapid Sheet Metal. “Users will be able to literally drag and drop native SolidWorks features in the Rapid Tooling Library into their designs. By integrating these features into their design, the user will be confident that Rapid already has the in-house tooling for fabrication and that additional time and expense will not be required to obtain specialized tooling.”
Rapid Sheet Metal is consistently adding new tooling downloads to their library, most recently a series of embossments and louvers. The Rapid Sheet Metal Tooling library can be accessed at www.rapidsheetmetal.com/tooling.
