AutoPOL Piper for Windows has a modern and intuitive user interface, which is extremely easy to learn and use. Parts are designed through dialog boxes. The user enters parameters for the part, and a 3D solid model is automatically created. The dimensioned 3D model can be printed and used as documentation for the manufacturing process.
All shapes are created as CAD models with manufacturing methods in mind. This means that surfaces are always defined in the best possible way for sheet metal forming.
AutoPOL Piper for Windows generates 2D flat patterns from the complex curves in 3D models. The 2D flat pattern can be exported in DXF format when these curves are automatically converted into basic arc and line drawing entities. This ensures acceptable geometry in CAM applications for cutting and punching.
