Cone Layout 2.0.4
A compact application that allows users to generate a sheet cutting layout or flat pattern projection, and print or export them to DXF, EPS, or a plain text file
The program sports a clean and intuitive GUI that gives you the possibility to view the designs in a 3D working environment where you can rotate the object to different angles, or analyze its flatten projection.
Cone Layout enables users to pick the page size and orientation, as well as set the margin coordinates. Plus, you can specify the diameter for the ends of the cone and angles, enter the distance between the centers of both ends of the cone, as well as configure the phi and theta parameters.
Plus, it features an automatic feature for minimizing the amount of wasted material, and offers support for different units (meters, inches, feet, yards, radians, degrees, gradients, minutes, points).
The flat projections and 3D models can be exported to DXF, EPS, or a plain text file, or printed. During our testing we have noticed that Cone Layout provides very good image quality and without errors throughout the entire process.
The program remains light on the system resources, so it doesn’t hamper system performance, nor interfere with other applications’ functionality.
To sum things up, Cone Layout provides an intuitive working environment and useful features for helping you generate a sheet cutting layout or flat pattern projection with ease. Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this tool, even less experienced users can master the operation with just a few clicks.
