Sheet Lightning Demo 5.2.4 description

Sheet Lightning Demo 5.2.4 is a combined parametric and 3D design CAD program for designing and unfolding the following products from sheet metal/material (Lite version includes only parametric design).

Sheet Lightning combines a powerful parametric design environment, a comprehensive design library and a full 3D CAD design environment for customized design. Together they provide an unrivaled tool for design in its product area and a capability for unlimited user library expansion. It is ideal for education!

Sheet Lightning is a unique and powerful specialist CAD design system for designing and unfolding 3D sheet metal products such as ducting, flue, chutes, hoppers, feeders, chimneys, tubular steel and a host of other related products (See: specification)

Sheet Lightning Version 5.0 (CAD and Parametric modeling) and Version 5.0 Lite (Parametric only) were released on 18 January 2003 using the latest Windows and CAD technology developed by Revcad from experience in a number of engineering sectors (sheet metalwork, steel detailing, automotive). This technology is called RAD CAD Technology (Rapid Application Development of CAD Applications) and is expected to lead to a number of new and advanced CAD products in related fields.

Sheet Lightning has unique and specialized design capability (See: examples) including its use on massive tubuar steel design projects and high profile civil engineering projects such as complex multi-branched conduit to hydo-electric turbines. Both versions come with comprehensive parametric design libraries (See: Libraries) but also with unique capability for creating one-off and complex designs, and for generating new parametric designs and expanding the design library.

Sheet Lightning is used widely in education and has unique CAD education potential due to the simplicity of 3D design and high productivity of the software. Sheet Lightning seamlessly integrates to general CAD systems.

Specialised engineering 2D/3D CAD and Parametric design for mechanical engineers. Create and unfold sheet metal duct, structural steel and fabrication designs for manufacture. It handles everything from simple cylinders, cones, rectangular ducts and ovals, to adapters, adapting any of these section types, interections and multi-intersections between of any of these types to any level of complexity. Includes a predefined parametric library. Libraries can be extended by creating new and original parametric designs from CAD designs. Lobster back bends (i.e. swept or segmented), Specials etc. Includes seamless integration to general CAD systems such as Autocad, Pro/E, Cadkey, Turbocad, Solid Edge, CAM systems and others. Exports 2D and 3D solid/surface designs and 2D flat unfolded patterns. The unanimous verdict of Sheet Lightning from software, freeware and shareware reviewers is a top 5-star rating award

Major Features:

  1. Primary Product Design and Manufacture
    • Ducts and Flues
    • Chutes
    • Hoppers
    • Chimneys
    • Tubular steel products with tubular intersections.
    • The types of objects handled are:
      • Cylinders
      • Cones
      • Ovals
      • Rectangular sections
      • Adapters (all sections) - Square-to-round, Oval-to-rectangular etc.
      • Any oblique or skew.
    • Intersections can be
      • Bends
      • Tees
      • Junctions/Cross-overs
    • Forming (for example):
      • Elbows
      • Swept/Segmented/Lobster-back bends
      • Divertors/BreechesTubular steel nodes
      • Feeders
      • Spiral chutes.
      • One-Off/Bespoke designs
  2. Secondary Product Design and Manufacture
    • The program has also been used very effectively for designing and manufacturing many other sheet and tubular material designs and products. Such products include exhaust manifolds, inflatable boats, inflatable bouncy castles, lamps shades and many similarly diverse products. Heavy engineering applications have included roof supports, tubular structural steel football stand supports, massive hydro-electric power station flow divertor conduit, and other major design projects.
  3. Sheet Lightning in Education
    • The program has proved to be a powerful and valuable educational tool for schools and colleges. The main benefit for education is that the program is specifically aimed at the design of certain products. This means that as a CAD system it is far more productive (in its product area) than that of a general CAD system.
    • Secondly the designs created by Sheet Lightning can be physically created/manufactured using any sheet material, including the paper output directly to the printer. Students therefore have a unique opportunity of connecting their 3D design work to the real world by using the program to create anything from very simple, to very creative and artistic 3D designs and then actually creating the physical design using the printed output.
    • The 3D system in Sheet Lightning bears a close resemblance to many of the general 3D CAD systems on the market, but it simplifies 3D CAD in a way that is made possible by the specific product area for which is developed. It also has the advantage of having a dual parametric/CAD design environment, which means that even before any CAD skills are developed students can get useful and interesting output just by loading parametric design templates and typing in a few dimension values.
  4. Sheet Lightning in Art
    • The most powerful specialism of Sheet Lightning is in its ability to create designs with complex intersections of many sheet material objects. This ability has proved to offer huge artistic potential. Sheet Lightning has an inbuilt and automatic facility for rendering 3D designs into solids with rotation/orbiting facilities. These images alone can be 'snapped' and used in presentations, but the 3D output can also be exported seamlessly to a CAD system and rendered with full control to produce some stunning images.
  5. Special Product Design and CAD Application Development
    • Sheet Lightning has been created using Revcad Software's RAD CAD technology (Rapid Application Development of Computer Aided Design). This technology allows for the rapid development of bespoke CAD applications for new and specific product areas. The result being that Sheet Lightning has highly specific design capability for certain product areas that are either embedded in the main product, or released as entirely separate applications with just this capability.
