Plate 'n' Sheet Development is a software program designed to unfold shapes commonly encountered by fabricators and sheet metal workers. The dimensions and other parameters that define the shape are entered by the user and may be any reasonable value. These may be altered at any time and the appearance shape will change dynamically.
The shape may be viewed as either a 3D model or as a flat pattern at any stage of the process. Tools are supplied to zoom in or out to see the shape in detail. If it is being viewed as a model, several viewing angles (top, front, side, end and four isometric angles) are available at the click of a button and true length measurements may be taken from the model.
Where possible, error messages will let you know if a parameter is not valid for the shape being created.
Several dimensioning modes are available and the resultant pattern may be printed or exported as a DXF for use in other software.
