Forming Technologies Inc.'s BlankWorks v4.3 provides SolidWorks2011 users with a fully integrated tool for developing optimal flat patterns from complex 3D designs. New features in BlankWorks 4.3 include flange/blank synchronization with SolidWorks geometry, blank edge smoothing to generate tangent continuous arc and line geometry to enhance the translation to the manufacturing process. In addition to flat pattern development and flange unfolding, BlankWorks also provides a contour plot indicating the thickening and thinning resulting from the forming process. It accounts for material stretch and deformation as well as bending and can flatten any SolidWorks geometry. This tool can also be used to assess the feasibility of a part for manufacturing.
