NC Sheetmetal

I just found out that my company has a license for NC Sheetmetal and I would like to utilize it for nesting flat patterns in an attempt to maximize material/minimize scrap. I wanted to see if anyone could point me to a tutorial or recommend a book that would help me get up to speed wit this module? I checked the PTC learning materials and it appears that there is no training for NC Sheetmetal (only the Sheetmetal design module).

Re: NC Sheetmetal

Hy tractor,

PTC don't have updating the NC Sheetmetal material since years (release 2001 I think). So if you found some material is about thes 2001. I've tried NC Sheetmetal some years ago and it works fine.

Re: NC Sheetmetal

My problem is that I can't find any training material at all on NC Sheetmetal. I came across this: http://www.datajett.com/Cadd/ProE/Wildfire_Help/pro_nc_sheetmetal.pdf but it appears to be a reference for someone who already understands the program. Also, I found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hj9CzpqnIDk but it is just a demo and is lacking enough detail to be useful (also my computer doesn't have sound). I'm looking for a tutorial that will walk me through two topics:

1. Setting up the basica parameters of the machines that we will be using (laser cutter, press, etc.).

2. Opening an existing sheetmetal part and nesting it.

If someone has a PDF file or something that would walk me through these steps I would really appreciate it.

Re: NC Sheetmetal

NC Sheet Metal should have the same current layout, we are already in Creo 4 and the module remains the same since 2001. NC Sheetmetal is a great tool and should not be abandoned.
