Software Overview

MPanel Production was developed specifically for the Marine Canvas industry.

MPanel Production has a wizard type interface that guides you step by step through your project. Working in Rhinoceros software (v5-7) as an add-on plugin, MPanel Production has tools that allow you to input all of the ‘extras’ that are needed…from drawing your model to seam allowances, panel stamping and output options

Version change log

Version 10 2022-04-29
Adjust mesh...New "Add adjacent marks" adds points and match marks where multiple meshes join a single mesh.
Adjust mesh...New "Add extra marks" adds points and therefore match marks where multiple edges join.
Arrange mesh....Tool now ignores any items other than meshes and points.
Arrange mesh....Adds any selected items other than meshes and points to the "Delete old objects" list.
Output....New option to invert panels.
Utilities…. Draw mesh edges added to mesh utilities that can be used to fix a mesh edge during cable edge relaxation.
Utilities…. marks and detail correctly preserved during panel split and panel split by hole.
General....Units are now shown on all relevant text entry boxes and the seam table
Version 9 2021-05-10
Add mesh...New "edge filter" simplifies adding meshes by restricting selection to valid edges.
Paneling....Make panel from 3 or 4 entities added to paneling.
Paneling....Make panel from single entity added to paneling.
Paneling.... Join Colored points joined… all the points join, irrespective of where they are in the panel.
Paneling....Use 3Dpoly as cut line added to advanced paneling.
Seams… Copy old panel edge is suppressed on edges where seam allowance are zero or negative.
Utilities…. Mirror mesh added to mesh utilities.
Utilities…. Join meshes with differing edge point count added to mesh utilities.
Utilities…. Divide curve into points tool added.
Version 8.0 2020-05-29
New "Add mesh between intersecting curves" speeds up model building.
New "Add hole in Panel" for clear fabric windows with simple split panel with hole to split the surrounding panel into parts.
New "Selection filter" tool simplifies selection of meshes, points, curves, lines or polylines from your model so you can copy, move or delete them.
New "Show seams and panel numbers on mesh" provides a new visualisation of the model to help production with correct panel arrangement.
Split panel by fabric width tool has been updated and improved.
Push old objects to back of view to make it simpler to select new items.
Panel numbers shown are the same as the MPanel panel ID numbers.
