Sheet Metal Design

Sheet Metal Design Software

Newswire estimated that the demand for sheet metal in the U.S. alone in 2016 was around $20 billion dollars. This material is used in all kinds of metalworking areas, including automobile and aerospace manufacturing, roofing, and HVAC products. Manufacturing is dependent on on 3D mechanical design software, such as TurboCAD Platinum.

For the past several versions, TurboCAD has included powerful 3D modification tools that are ideally suited to sheet metal design. And with TurboCAD’s broad support of CAD file formats such as STEP, IGES, SAT, and DWG, you can import and further modify existing designs. Once created, sheet metal parts can be exported to a DXF format that can then be used by most CAM software packages for CNC manufacturing.

Tools in TurboCAD that are well-suited to sheet metal product  include Bend and Unbend, Tube Bend and Tube Flange creation, Imprint, Unfold and Tweak Faces, and Hole creation.

The release of TurboCAD 2019 Platinum has added significant 3D design features, many of which are perfect for sheet metal design. To see some of TurboCAD's Sheet Metal features in action, watch any of the videos below.
