Sheet Metal Design and Unfolding Software for Tees, Bends, Junctions, Intersections, Cylinders, Cones,
Ducts, Flue, Diverters, Adapters, Chutes, Chimneys, Hoppers, Structural Steel and much more.
Sheet Lightning is a specialised engineering 2D/3D CAD System for creating and unfolding sheet metal designs
for fabrication or manufacture. It handles everything from simple cylinders, cones, rectangular ducts
and ovals, to adapters, adapting any of these section types, interections between any of these types
and multi-intersections of any of these types. This enables it to handle breeches, lobster-back or
segmented bend and very unusual or complex one-off designs. All pieces can have centre line offset and oblique
or skewed sections. Simple designs are handled with ease through a second 'parametric' environment that requires
only the typing of key dimension values to modify the design. A library of standard designs is included.
Futhermore all designs created using the full 3D system can be automatically analysed and converted to
a parameteric form, then saved as extensions to the existing library.
The software integrates to general CAD systems via seamless DXF transfer, exporting both 2D patterns and 3D models.
The product has been provensince the earlienst version in the worldwide market place since 1990,
offering truly unique design capability.

Key Features of Sheet Lightning - Sheet Metal Design and Unfolding Software:
New Design Features:
The adapters available in the library at the time of release include adaptions between circular, rectangular, radius rectangle
and oval sections with or without oblique skew.
One of the designs provides all the required parameters to provide for universal section to section adaption. This takes the form of a
radius rectangle andapting to a radius rectance of different proportions with oblique skewing in X and Y directions. By zeroing parameter
this design can be reduced to any of the other adapters shown.
The bends available in the library at the time of release are shown below. One of the designs provides all the required parameters
to provide for a universal bend. This takes the form of two tapered radius rectangle objects adapting to a radius rectance of
different proportions with oblique skewing in X and Y directions. By zeroing parameter this design can be reduced to any of the
other adapters shown.
The parametric tee intersections available in the library at the time of release are shown below. The library tees are divided
into sections with and without take-off offset. Tee with offset are provided and 90 degree, a specified angle, with and without
matching to maximize the intersection.
A number of flow divertors are included in the parametric library, with turned and oblique/skew branching.
A number of junctions/crossovers are included in the parametric library.
The library includes basic single objects including simple cones and cyliders, with and without oblique skewing.
