Designing Graded Spiral Chutes with Sheet Lightning Pro v6 CAD Software
Sheet Lightning Pro v6 CAD software includes a powerful sheet metal spiral chute designer for designing graded chutes that can be defined with entry and exit slope angles, and a mid gradient
slope angle, thus allowing the chute to drop steeply in the middle but grade out before exit. The designs are created using typed dimensions only once the designer is loaded. This is an image of the designer in
