This new version with its enhancements specifically meets the requirements of the US market. EasyBlank rapidly calculates a developed blank outline from imported 3D CAD part geometry, using the well known AutoForm-OneStep simulation technology. Material optimization and nesting layout are also calculated, making the software particularly useful at the quotation stage of a project.
EasyBlank is free to download and use, and users of the software need only purchase the results they choose, making it attractive for both tool and die shops and stamping companies alike. Users who purchase their results online also receive a detailed report that contains information on material consumption, thinning distribution of the part, blank outline and optimal nesting layout.
EasyBlank provides users with an early cost analysis, allowing the minimization of material costs and material usage and scrap.
The new release contains the following enhancements:
– American unit system: in addition to the metric unit system, users can select the American unit system in order to better meet the US specific market requirements.
– 64-bit version: EasyBlank now runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems (Windows XP and Vista).
