Sheet Lightning - Version 6 - Released Feb 2011

Sheet Lightning v 6 is here! With powerful new features including the ability to generate whole chutes (spiral and other) by simply typing dimensions, and most of all to import DXF files containing 3D center line layouts (Pro Version) - automatically turning them into 3D intersecting pipes and cones, with intersection of any level of complexity.

Trevor Maddison, the company project manager has said - ‘Our purpose is to create affordable solutions for the whole market, not just large corporates. The pricing structure reflects the true spirit of Revcad’s commitment to keep the little guy at the leading edge’.

This release includes a completely revamped parametric library and includes some special design features - such as a parametric designer for pressure vessels.

  • Direct export to CAD programs (such as Autocad) - no need to save and pick up files.
  • New object cross sections with variable radii for all rectangular corners.
  • OpenGL support.
  • Enhanced matching capability.
  • Closer relationship between 3D and parametric environment.
  • Full printing capability of full size patterns and design images - for manufacure or reports.
  • Version 5 is fully backwards compatible (able to load files of previous versions).
