New sheet metal CAD/CAM software from Radan

Metalforming Machinery Makers' Association : 19 November, 2006  (New Product)
Radan Delivers New Levels of Material Utilisation and Productivity Radan, the latest release of its world-leading CAD/CAM software for sheet metal applications, is now available from Radan Computational Ltd. Many of the software
These include enhanced nesting routines for components that stack at specific angles, improved common line slitting and the ability to store and automatically nest part used sheets. Automation is a further theme in Radan 05, with new features including the ability to define, store and retrieve tooling templates that specify the required tool blow combinations to be used whenever particular geometry is programmed.

Further productivity improvements include new heat avoidance options for all types of profiling machines and enhanced parts removal and unloading capabilities. Radan 05 also supports ACIS 14, allowing the direct import of latest ACIS 3D models. In addition, native AutoDesk Inventor files can be imported directly into the system, along with an extended range of optional 3D file formats, including Parasolid, CATIA V4 and V5, SolidWorks, Unigraphics, VDA-FS and Pro/E. Equivalent support for SolidEdge models will be available shortly. Latest upgrades to the software’s user interface and working environment include enhancements to auto-dimensioning, easier set up sheet and nesting report generation, and more effective DNC flow control. Furthermore, Radan 05’s support for Visual Basic for Applications provides simplified handling of macros, improves integration with third party software, and enables users to easily customise their working environments to individual requirements.
