CAD Software Development for the Continuous Flexible Forming Process
The software for the continuous flexible forming process was developed using Visual C++ platform. It can directly read the triangular mesh data of the CAD model. The three-dimensional model was reconstructed rapidly by using the core function of the OpenGL. Moreover, the mathematical model of adjusting the flexible rolls and the longitudinal curvature were established by this software. Using these mathematical descriptions the simulation of the continuous flexible forming process can be finished from the viewpoint of geometry.
