I am working on a bend tubular chair frame. The company which will prototype this using cnc bending doesn’t work with 3D files and requests 2D drawings. I have made such drawings before, they include radii, angle, rotation and lenght and take me a lot of time to make. I need to make plenty of guidelines to be able to calculate the various angles. All dimensions are not perpendicular to the views so I use leaders to be able to dimension it.
There are plugins for packages such as Solidworks which automate this process. (BendTech, AdvancedTubular).
Does anyone know a way an easier way how to make these 2D drawings? Or a plugin? Preferably with a bend table.
ps. Working on Rhino Mac but posting this here since the Mac doesn’t support plugins yet. If someone knows a solution for Rhino Mac that would be great.
