Drawing process is an important technology in shaping products. In the paper, the geometric surfaces of tools and sheet were modeled by Pro/E software, and a 3D finite element model of the cylindrical drawing process was developed by DYNAFORM. Numerical simulation results showed the distribution of stress, strain and thickness. FLD showed no material was in crack area and risk crack area. The drawing process could be successfully completed in one stroke. The simulation results were helpful for the die design.
