I'm looking for a program that can help me calculate costs for sheet metal parts. Bricscad was mentioned to me, but google didn't offer me much on this specific feature.
The aim is to import a step-file directly from the customer. This will comprise of sheet metal parts, ranging 1mm to 100mm thick, along with tubes and axles, and other parts like rubber seals, wheels, bearings, nuts and bolts, etc...
The focus is on the metal parts. These need to be calculated in terms of cutting time (laser, plasma and autogene), material usage (area, weight, volume).
For thinner parts also bending time. Thicker part often require milling and/or drilling, so if this could also be calculated, 't would be swell.
Is this possible with Bricscad (maybe with an 3rd party add-on)?
Please advice, our Sales team is heading for a collective burn-out...
