Punch Design


Enhancement – Punch definition table supports filtering of cutting punch template with the file property “PRL tags”.
The file property “PRL tags” shall be added to the punch design template. And the value of the file property “PRL tags” will be used to distinguish the PRL template to be used with this punch design template.


The desired cutting punch, bending punch and user defined component templates should also add the file property “PRL tags” and set the same values as the punch design template.

In the punch definition table, only the cutting punch templates that have the same values as the punch design template in the “PRL tags” file property will be listed.


Enhancement – Create bending punch and create round extrude punch support filtering of punch template with the file property “PRL tags”.


Enhancement – Create user defined component supports filtering of punch template with the file property “PRL tags”.




Enhancement – Bend steps in interference detection supports dividing bend sections by entered angle value.




Enhancement – Manufacturing color supports adding mfg. color to standard component holes.

The standard component hole color data file “3DQP_SC_MfgInfo.xml” was added to the “3DQuickPressdatabase” folder of the 3DQuickPress installation. This data file configures the colors to be painted on different types of standard component holes.


The “3DQP_SC_MfgInfo.xml” data file defines the mfg. color code in the format below:


a) <Name ID=”…”> is the type name of standard component defined in the file property “3DQPComponentName” in the standard component document.


b) <Unit ID=”IN/MM”> is the unit of the standard component.


c) <swWzdGeneralHoleType ID=”…”> is the hole type to be drilled.
Currently supported hole types are:


d) <R>/<G>/<B> are RGB color values ranged from 0 to 255.




Enhancement – Tolerance on drill le depth is supported in SmartHoleTable.
