Forming Tools

Forming tools include several enhancements that improve the workflow.
You can:
  • Select configurations of the forming tools or target parts.
  • Change the placement face where you locate the forming tools.
  • Create links to forming tools, so that if you change the original forming tool, the changes propagate to target parts where you use the forming tool.
  • Replace existing forming tools with different forming tools.
  • Set the appearance of placement sketches in flat patterns.
  • Assign punch IDs for use in punch tables.
