Part Design

This course is an introduction to the application of AutoForm-StampingAdviser for early product formability assessments. Following a tutorial overview of AutoForm-UserInterface functionality – for geometry import, manipulation and pre-processing – participants are introduced to a systematic approach to identifying potential stamping issues on product geometry.

Participants are lead through a number of real-life examples that help illustrate the above approach; these examples also serve to clearly establish the benefits of upfront formability assessments based on nominal design specifications and minimal but essential manufacturing inputs.

The course also instructs participants on using AutoForm-StampingAdviser for blank development, as well as the use of nesting for optimization of material costs based on the above developed blank.


This two-day course is intended for product designers, methods planners or process layout engineers, as well as for sales (quoting and bidding) engineers. No prior AutoForm training or experience is required.
