Litio sheet metal for AutoCAD and GStarCAD

LITIO 2.0 is a sheet metal add-on for AutoCAD and GStarCAD, that calculates and draws the flat sheet development of ducts, rectangle-to-round transitions, cylinders, cones, pipe intersections, connections, bifurcations, elbows, etc. It is very easy to use and very versatile. It is ideal for the sheet metal-processing industry: for HVAC, hoppers, cyclones, dust extraction, ducts, conveying systems, silos, piping, etc.

Additional Info

  • Features:


    Some of LITIO 2.0 new features are:

    • Thickness: 3D objects are now drawn showing thickness. (You are able to see what kind of bevel preparation you will need to weld 3D objects together).
    • New patterns: oblique transitions; trifurcations; helixes; "S" pipes; conical bends; bends with various cross sections; more branch patterns; intersecting patterns*; free transitions*; etc.
    • 3D TRIM: You can trim (intersect) two 3D objects to get, for example, a conical branch on an square to round transition (or any other combination).*
    • 3D plane TRIM: Easier way to cut 3D objects with a plane.* You also get the intersection polyline, for example, to make a cover of a tank, which was cut on a x° plane.
    • New 3D developable ruled surfaces generator engine: You can create your own customized transitions, just by clicking on any two entities located in AutoCAD's 3D space, and which define both ends of the transition.*
    • New 3D to 2D unfolder engine: You can even unfold your own 3D meshes [N=2], just by clicking on them.
    • 2D profiles: You can get the development of the most common sheet metal profiles [L, U, Z, S, J, Omega], and also of any other 2D profile you wish*, just clicking on a 2D Polyline that defines a profile.
    • Enhanced error and dialogue messages: No more messages like: Not valid length X1.; Now these messages give you much more information to find out, what is going wrong.
    • Language capability: Dialogues, and error and dialogue messages in different languages (still adding languages).
    • Clearer dialogue images: Dialogue images are bigger. Dimensions that can be either positive or negative, have a + symbol drawn in dialogue image to show positive direction (E.g., dt X).
    • Independent IN/MID/OUT: You can select in/mid/out dimensions on both ends of transformations independently.
    • IN/MID/OUT contact: You can select in/mid/out contact on bend or bifurcation pieces.
    • Grooves: Allowance for grooved seams (for thin metal sheet) is made automatically.

    LITIO2 is a third-party application that is compatible with AutoCAD and GStarCAD. LITIO2 addon works within AutoCAD R 200X (and Mechanical Desktop 200X), from release 2000 onwards, and GStarCAD.
