The attached vid is a demonstartion of what can be accomplished with what I call the parametric box method and a lot of work within the variables and annotation table.
My hope with this is that they expand the bend tables to include back gage and stick out. the would only require one additional piece of information into there bend tables. what direction the bend is comming from. There is already a way to input the bend sequence. With the sequence and a direction, they could build the back gage and stick out into the tables. This would save me about 12 hours of template creation time.
What good is a bend table without the back gage and stick out?
The result is I can resize my boxy tanks, and create a new set of drawings, and downstream exported flat patterns, bend tables, and fabrication drawings in about 30 min.
