SmartMachining is a revolutionary way of thinking about
designing custom cabinetry. With easy to set preset parameters, SmartMachining
will add holes in AutoCAD® solids in an intuitive way to your company’s
specifications. We have included samples of certain industry standard boring
patterns, but you can expand on these easily. SmartMachining consists of six modules, which are sold as one suite, for standard drilling tasks, each with
their own AutoCAD® button and each with their own menu and sets of parameters.
Any combination of metric or inch drawings or machining units can be selected. Please click on the links
below for a more detailed description of each module. Presets can now be stored
as a group to facilitate the use of different shop standards for different jobs.
SmartMachining, by itself, makes applying boring patterns
easy in AutoCAD® solids, but its real strength is shown when it works in
conjunction with MillLister, Inc.’s product, SmartLister. You can find out
more about this product at www.SmartLister.com
SmartLister is a unique program that allows for easy manipulation of AutoCAD
solids. Here is a list of some of its other substantial abilities:
Measure 3D solids, regardless of orientation and symmetry.
Stretch 3D solids, even multiple 3D solids at the same time.
Feature recognize 3D solids on six sides.
Generate CAM ready 2D dxf files.
Create CSV and MDB files for import into optimizers and accounting systems.
Group, sort and filter your cut lists.
Scale 3D solids from Imperial to Metric or Metric to Imperial on export.
Group hundreds of solids almost instantly for easy selection.
Control the visibility of all the objects in your drawing, regardless of
Move and copy assemblies as if they were 2D.
Limitless export profiles to export the data in any order you want.
Export 3D solids and lay them flat.
Create exploded 3D assembly views.
Add balloons that auto-fill will with the part’s number.
Modify the way your feature recognition works depending on material type.
Move, copy, array, erase, copy-rotate and mirror holes in multiple solids in
SmartLister now creates individual layered DXF outputs for
each piece in the drawing in a format easily read by AlphaCAM or MasterCAM or a multitude
of other CNC specific post processors. This allows for direct input into your CNC machining operation whether it be a
point to point machining or CNC router with the most efficient application being
nested base manufacturing.
One of the strengths of SmartMachining is to let your
manufacturing facility create the joints and holes you want to, without being
tied to parametric predesigned cabinet configurations by others. This is
especially useful in one of a kind products. The six SmartMachining modules
are: line boring, drawer slide boring, hinge hole and hinge plate boring, tongue
and groove joinery, doweled or Confimat™ joinery, and a botton to remove all
holes from the part. By combining certain of
these modules, KD fittings can also be bored for. Please click on the links

the SmartMachining modules.
