From cad to prolink, ready for forming!
AutoPOL – 3d import to ProLink. We work together with the software developer AutoPOL and we have now taken a stride forward and upgraded the possibilities for file import for even easier integration of the machine in your daily work. With this upgrade you can import 3d-models and develop them further. From there our software will take the actual bend allowances from the machine and unfold a dxf file for the pre formed part to be cut on a punch, laser or other cutting machine. This ensure the correct blank size which means faster turnaround for small batch runs.
A 3D model opens in AutoPOL. The most common CAD file formats are accepted.
Materials are selected and a sheet extension is created with a simple push of a button.
The result is exported as a ProLink NC file, as well as a DXF file for laser / punch.
The NC file opened in CIDAN ProLink.
The DXF file can later be opened in a CAM program for nesting, laser cutting or punching.
