Free time limited copy of ToolDraft: ANCA offers the chnace to perfect tool drawing skills with software trials and technical support
ANCA customers can take up the opportunity to learn new software skills and trial ToolDraft software for stay-home productivity
ANCA is launching a free time limited copy of ToolDraft software to ANCA customers globally, to learn how to create 2D cutting tool and wheel pack drawings in under five minutes.
ToolDraft is the perfect drawing package to create quick and easy 2D drawings of fully dimensioned cutting tools, wheels and wheel packs. This software package enables tool and cutter manufacturers to create drawings of cutting tools and wheels, including wheel packs without relying on third party software.
The current global pandemic due to COVID-19 means that many manufacturers are working from home or experiencing changed working conditions. Reduced on-machine time may provide the opportunity for some to explore new software packages, undertake skills training and diversify their product ranges. Improving functional expertise, upskilling and engaging with online learning platforms are becoming common activities for many employees in coronavirus lockdown situations. Learning new software skills can increase productivity for a return to business as usual.
ToolDraft is packed with clever features – it’s the ultimate drafting package
ANCA Software Product Manager, Thomson Mathew explains: “For some, creating fully dimensioned tool and wheel drawings would take hours and hours. With ToolDraft this has become a very easy process, saving our customers time and helping them to produce high precision tools for a range of industries. ToolDraft is easy to use software that supports technical expertise and manufacturing capabilities.”
ToolDraft is a standalone product independent of ToolRoom and CIM3D releases but has the option to export 3D models from both into accurate 2D projection views like endface view, side view, and isometric view into ToolDraft.
Features and benefits include:
  • Dimension all tool features with tolerances
  • Annotate drawing with text, images, and drafting symbols
  • Insert tables to create title blocks
  • Load and save user defined drawing templates
  • Export drawing as PDF with ability to print drawings
  • Core, cutting and blank profiles can be added
  • Side, endface, shank and isometric views can be added
  • 1st and 3rd angle projections can be added
  • Detail and cross section views can be added
  • A library of drafting symbols
  • Default text, line and colour style properties can be changed to suit company standards
  • Wheels and wheel pack drawings
Technical support and tool drafting tips
Trialling this software is an opportunity to learn the wide range of uses available. ANCA will be running informative webinars to guide new users in the operation of the special features of ToolDraft. The software is available on ANCA Club to download, as well as a helpful series of tutorial videos.
Online support is already available as ToolDraft features are regularly highlighted in ANCA’s weekly tool tips with our #ANCAToolTipTuesday series. ANCA software expert, Thomson Mathew will also be standing by to have a live Q&A sessions with users after an initial week’s trial.
