Insert & Reconnect Forming Shape

Feb 2013 Toolingtip2One of the first tasks in die design is creating a series of forming shapes, where the part is gradually unfolded.  When using Cimatron Die Design, each forming shape is associative to the next, so that an edit of an early step in the process will be updated through each of the successive steps.  But plans often change, and sometimes a new step must be added to the forming process.  The forming shape function Insert & Reconnect in version 10 will help you smooth out the integration of such changes, allowing you to insert a new forming shape at any stage of the process while still maintaining associativity throughout the project.
