Rotation on Perforated Pattern

This feature has been exclusively added for circular and spiral pattern type. This feature will give the user more freedom in designing perforated pattern for their sheet metal perforation project. In the circular pattern type, user can make all the tools rotate toward the centre of the sheet and this will give a different perfective of the perforated pattern design. In the spiral pattern type, the user is not only able to rotate toward the centre of the sheet but also is able to rotate toward their adjacent tool after and before it. Thus, this will give another design perspective.

When user opens the Perforated Type Pattern dialog box and click on the spiral pattern, he or she can define the angle of the tool for the perforated pattern design by selecting a particular option on the Angle Direction Group. The first option is to follow the angle direction originally defined when creating the tool on either the tool database for punching tooling mode or the automatic tool generation for laser tooling mode. The second option is to rotate the tool to the center of “gravitation”, which is the origin point of the spiral. The third option is to rotate the tool according to the adjacent tool, or according to the spiral direction.
