3-D die design software allows you to build the die on the computer screen, fully assembled and ready to run as if it were built and sitting out on the shop floor. SolidWorks-based Logopress3 software even allows you to then simulate the die running in the press. Even better, it detects crashing and strip feeding interference problems on your computer screen rather than after the die has been built.
