Thermal Insulation Cover Design with ExactFlat & SOLIDWORKS

The ability to flatten a thermal insulation cover design is a perfect example to demonstrate the power and flexibility of ExactFlat software and how it can save you time and money.

You might not think that pipe insulation sounds like a difficult task to design but it was very labourious before ExactFlat came along, as it requires very precise cutting of insulation layers as well as exact positioning of fasteners and straps. It can also be very difficult to wrap complex valves and piping but with Exactflat it’s a snap.

Featured Technology:


ExactFlat is a SOLIDWORKS certified gold partner product that accurately addresses the traditionally tedious and labour intensive processes in the soft goods fabrication industry.

ExactFlat takes complex geometry of soft goods CAD models (textiles, furniture cushions, fabrics, and more) and accurately flattens the shape for cutting as well as fully analyzing the flattened shape for stretch and sag to make sure that it fits perfectly the first time.
