What kind of workflow are you trying to achieve?

what would be your ideal workflow when starting a fresh sheet metal part?

Our workflow ist the following;

 

Select Material Type

Select a Sheet Metal Material Thickness (that is possible (available within your company) for the previous selection)

Select a Bend Tooling Setup

 

and that's it.

NX12 is then capable of modifying most of the bends you create according to the bend angle !

That means if you have a very loaded bend table, you can design as it will become in reality.

Bend Radii and Bend Neutral Factors are being modified on the fly (with interpolations if needed)

At this moment only following features are supported:

Flange

Contour Flange

Sheet Metal From Solid

 

I haven't tested the Bridge Bend yet.

 

Don't work yet:

Lofted Flange

Convert to Sheet Metal

 

We testing an import tool to go from an EXCEL file to the bend table file;

All I can say from own experience; If you're trying a similar workflow, I would advise an automated way of setting up the new Sheet Metal Material/Bend Table.

 

We're not finished yet - work in progress...

I guess Dave Walker (NX Product Manager for Sheet Metal) will have things to add here.

 

Once set up it will be VERY powerful. For us as a subcontracter it's the tool I've been waiting for for years!

Thankyou @frank_nx.

 

I am trying to help @daniel_aguayo via direct email.

One thing to note - I don't believe everyone will need a fully automated method, it really depends on how many material changes your company has to manage.

 

Will share some techniques, tips and templates just as soon as I can.
