ExactFlat Joins OnShape Partner Program To Bring 3D To 2D Flattening To The Cloud

ExactFlat flattening solutions for industrial fabrics, carbon fibre composites, and stamped sheet now available via the OnShape Apps Store.

TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2015 -- The leader in pattern and blank creation, partners with the leader in 3D CAD in the cloud


ExactFlat, a leader in 3D to 2D flattening software, today announces the availability of an integrated solution to bring their capabilities to the rapidly growing community of Onshape users. This combination:

* Merges the design and production automation of soft goods,
* Eliminates high upfront product and training costs associated with previous solutions,
* Allows everyone on a design team to work together via a web browser, phone, or tablet.

Increasing profitability for soft goods and stamped metal fabricators.

With the combination of ExactFlat and OnShape, manufacturers and fabricators of industrial fabrics, carbon fibre composites, and stamped sheet metal will convert their 3D design into patterns and blanks in minutes. This significantly improves productivity, reduces time to market and virtually eliminates physical prototyping cost.

Moving First and Fast

"We are delighted to be working with OnShape as they have a clear vision for the future of CAD, and a strong commitment to move first and move fast" said Eaton Donald, CEO of ExactFlat. "User innovation continues to inspire us as they find new ways to collaborate on the design and development of products. Our vision is to eliminate the barriers to innovation and we will continue to aggressively partner with other industry leaders to make that a reality."

Designers and Production Managers of companies fabricating Soft Goods or Stamped Metal parts can visit www.exactflat.com/onshape to learn more and test the solution. The ExactFlat Plugin for Onshape is currently in private beta. Manufacturers interested in participating in the beta testing program can request an invitation at onshape.com/app-store-beta.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
