a tool that helps me.

 

if i want to make a part, og a cut plate end then bend it.

from my tool, i start choosing fx, how to make this part - cut.

when i choosen cut, then i can only pick metal plates.

after that I choose what type of material - stainless steel.

after that i pick my type of stainless steel.

 

when i make a selection, i want the program only to show me, the next possible selection.

if i want to laser cut it, i dont want to ba able, to select a round bar.

 

hope it gives a picture, of wjat im looking for.

Best regards

we have created different material groups to our material list, to help when creating components for different purpose. we have alum sheet metal, stainless sheet metal, steel sheet metal, and then structural. that's just what we have, giving an example.

 

then when you create a .par file, that is NON-sheet metal, so you choose the structural material group. when we create .psm it is for sheet metal parts, and you pick the correct type of material from the material groups.

 

just how we do it, sure others have different suggestions.
