    using for
    programming our punch presses, with something that works well with

    fabriWin is somewhat integrated into SolidWorks. It will flatten your
    part and convert it for you. It is a one at a time thing and doesn't
    have open API to automate going through an assembly. I didn't use it
    too much for a punch myself because we had replaced our punch with a
    plasma and pretty much abandoned the punch except for a few aluminum
    parts and some of the thicker gages that needed tighter hole
    tolerances. For plasma it was extremely easy to program though.
