SOLIDWORKS-based 3D die design software.
ExactFlat is an add-in for SOLIDWORKS that automates the design and development of products covered in fabrics and made from composites. ExactFlat does this by:
With these benefits, manufacturers that implement ExactFlat increase their productivity and profitability by 30-50%.
Create a flat patterns from any 3D shape. The Create Piece tool allows the user to define the surfaces, solid faces, edges to cut and materials that define a single connected piece.
2D pattern features such as Edge Features, Notches Grain Lines and Markings are added in Pattern View.
Optimized nest files are created in Marker View. Material information is used to determine flat pattern information.
Technical documentation is created using drawings. ExactFlat enhance the SOLIDWORKS tools set with Edge Feature Callouts, BOM tables and 3D, 2D and nested views of the design. The drawings environment allows the user to quickly document a sewn product design using ExactFlat tools in SOLIDWORKS.
