Bandsaw Designer

Bandsaw Designer Demo

Bandsaw CAD(Computer Aided Drafting) program to assist in saw design and selection.

Bandsaw Designer is now compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 (32 and 64 bit).

Advantages and Features of Bandsaw Designer.

Bandsaw designer was created for saw manufacturers and saw filers. Bandsaw Designer simplifies the design process and has a very short learning curve. There is no need to know how to use a CAD program nor is it necessary to have any knowledge of geometry or trigonometry.

Using Bandsaw Designer saves time over standard CAD programs. Designing a bandsaw in a CAD program can take anywhere from twenty minutes to one hour. Using Bandsaw Designer the process can be as little as five minutes, therefore significantly reducing the total design time.

Bandsaw Designer allows you to see the changes as you make them. The bandsaw is displayed in a viewer window and updated with every change, therefore allowing you to view the bandsaw exactly the way it will look when completed.

Features Include:
  • Windows Design (point and click).
  • Choose from seven tooth shape styles.
  • Calculate power requirements.
  • Choose between imperial and metric.
  • Step by step design process.
  • Variable tooth pitch and gullet depth.
  • Specification reports.
  • Export your bandsaw to a DXF file.
For more details see the following:

Tooth styles include:
  • Square back.
  • Round back.
  • Double radius (two different arcs at the bottom of the gullet).
  • Triple radius (three different arcs at the bottom of the gullet).
  • Flat bottom (flat gullet bottom).
  • Narrow Style.
  • "O" shape.
Variable pitch can be adjusted segments of three to seven teeth.
Gullet depth can be adjusted independently of the tooth pitch.

Some of the other values Bandsaw Designer calculates include:
  • Gullet area.
  • Gullet capacity.
  • Tooth bite.
  • Estimated horsepower.

You can either use a step by step process using input dialog boxes where the program guides you through the bandsaw design, or use the various editors to design a bandsaw. This allows greater flexibility and options in the design process.

Upon completion of your bandsaw, you can export it to a DXF file (drawing exchange format), compatible with many CAD/CAM programs including Autocad. You can also print out a detailed specification report with all the bandsaw information, including drawings.
