TerraFlat 3D, new patterning plugin for Rhino

Tri-D Technologies has introduced a new plugin for Rhino, TerraFlat 3D. TerraFlat3D will analyze and flatten 3D shapes for 2D patterning and manufacturing.

flattenUsed for:

  • Boat composites
  • Automobile parts
  • Shoe prototyping
  • Awnings
  • Glass applications
  • Furniture patterning
Specific functions include:
  • Ability to read all popular 3D CAD formats (including high-end NURBS files from CATIA, Unigraphics, IDEAS, Pro-E, SolidWorks, Inventor)
  • Color-coded strain analysis where relief cuts are required
  • Automatic cut lines generated by “understanding” the seams
  • Free-flow manual cuts anywhere along a complex NURBS surface (unique to the industry)
  • Based on Tri-Ds AccuCut technology

I had several instability problems with toolbars. The little I was able to test seems promising. OS Win7, 32 bits. Finally I gave up and unistalled the program. Would it work on Rhino5 also?
