Check.jpg NEW: Springback Compensation

VTube now uses standard springback-compensation variables in the Part Setup menu. Here are some points about the feature:

  • The fixed springback value is a degree value added to every bend.

  • The proportional springback value is a percentage multiplied against every bend.

  • The values are used to anticipate springback of material in bending and compensate by over bending if necessary during correction.

  • The values are always used automatically in the Bender Setup menu. (See below for more details).

  • If the values are ZERO, then they are effectively switched off.

  • The values can be calculated using the Advanced Tubular Technologies Overbend Calculator.

Check.jpg ENHANCED - Bender Setup Menu With Springback Values

The Bender Setup menu now includes columns for springback adjustment calculations where you can view how much the part is changed by the springback values.

These values are automatically calculated in this menu from the Part Setup "Fixed" and "Proportional" Springback values.

Check.jpg ENHANCED - Bender Setup Menu Popup Menu for Rotations

Sometimes the corrected rotation value may move in the wrong direction.

The Bender Setup menu has new popup menus for the rotation and rotation adjust cells that allow you to quickly invert the rotation to change the rotation directions (to help in bender setup).

  • The Part Setup grid cells resize vertically if text no longer fits.
  • The caption in VTube-LASER updates to the correct file name after a file save.
