Brands with machining

In Microvellum, all AutoCAD drawings are a reflection of how the spreadsheet tells AutoCAD to draw. If you do something to a product or part in AutoCAD, as soon as the spreadsheet is refreshed and or order processed, the data redraws in accordance with the spreadsheet. In wCC, we can use AutoCAD commands, which writes to the database.

In Microvellum, with their extruded product builder, if you have a curved or curved and tapered diewall, their solid analysis works just like SolidCIM and ignores those parts. In wCC, we flatten them so that they can be machined.

Cut Rite Nesting and Optimization

Timberline Tests for NESTING and comment re Optimization: They use MV but changed to CR:


37 38
29 30
37 38
23 23

CR is also yielding significantly larger useable offcuts out of the sheets utilized, so the total material savings is more than just the one sheet per WO in these examples.
