ExactFlat Add-In for Fusion 360 streamlines the path from CAD to Cutter
Tri-D Technologies announced the introduction of the ExactFlat Online plugin for Autodesk Fusion 360. ExactFlat Online is a 3D to 2D flattening solution running entirely in the Cloud. The new Plugin allows users of Fusion 360 to publish and upload surface models directly to the ExactFlat SaaS engine for flattening. Once flattened the pattern pieces can be downloaded into Fusion 360 or AutoCAD for finishing steps such as adding seams and notches or for creating assembly drawings and cut files.
"We've been evaluating Fusion 360 because of the functionality and the fact that it runs on the Cloud." Said Aram Goganian, President of Predator Cycling. "Automated flattening is incredibly important to us as well and once we found out that there was a Cloud-based ExactFlat Plugin the decision to use Fusion 360 was a no-brainer."
Fast, affordable 3D flattening that works with your existing team and tools.
ExactFlat automation software promises to dramatically reduce the time associated with flattening, pattern making, and cutting tasks. Fully integrated as an add-in to the Fusion 360 cloud-based 3D CAD/CAM/CAE platform, ExactFlat OnLine brings these benefits to smaller manufacturers or organizations that have critical but infrequent needs for flattening. Manufacturers are invited to visit www.exactflat.com/OnLine to register and try the tool now. There is no cost to upload and flatten 3D files. Fees are charged for downloads of 2D patterns on an annual ($695 USD) or per-job basis.
The Fusion 360 Plugin program enables Autodesk to rapidly extend the functionality already present in the software. The vision is for a new and diverse ecosystem of connected applications. The partnership with ExactFlat exemplifies this process of democratizing technology that was previously reserved for only dedicated high end users.
