Hi Gerald, Hi everybody,

I would like to present you this software with great abilities !!!.I was looking on the web for a software i have seen 3 years ago to unfold 3D volume (http://www.touchcad.com/). Finally, i have found a cheaper and easy to use software : http://www.laminadesign.com/ :cool:

I think a good help to go ahead with Mechmate cutting...
Have a look and tell me what do you think. thanks.

Very interesting I will have to play with the demo. It could be some great software.
Thank you, Pierre, for bringing this to the forum.

As you think , it is going to became a "master" software if it could accomplish correctly and easily all the functions it is made for : i'm going to use the trial tonight.

The photo-results of 3d realisations are incredibles thinking they came from flat parts materials !!!

Have you seen all the "automatic" possibilities to stick flat parts beetwen each other ???. I'm really exited by this software....

Bye, Pierre.

This is a link from Jonathan David Chertok's site , it explain strategy for new ways to work with mesh.
something in the same spirit for architectural drawing http://www.visualarq.com/ it is a beta but the video look promising.
