TORONTO - Germany's PYTHA Lab will make the North American debut of its PYTHA 3D CAD software at the Toronto Wood Machinery & Supply Expo, November 5-7 at the International Centre. For several years its developers have been steadily expanding the international distribution of their software.

Partners sell the software in Europe, but also in the worldwide market. PYTHA Lab is located in Aschaffenburg, Germany.

Described as a "powerful, intuitive software," the range of applications includes high end bedrooms, wardrobes and closets, or luxury-level kitchens. Current users apply it to commercial joinery, contract furniture and highly detailed bespoke joinery.

Since February 2015 the new PYTHA version V22 with numerous novelties is available. New is for example the PYTHA “Smart Parametrics“, the PYTHA „Profil functions“ or the point “Managing PYTHA Liberaries“, which are briefly introduced here. 

PYTHA Smart Parametrics
With parameterised parts it is really easy to quickly modifying a designed part. The intelligent scene analysis integrated in the new PYTHA “Smart Parametrics” modifies your construction with no time lag.
Profile Function
The new profile function allows arbitrary radii at the bottom and top of the profile. This also works with profile cross-sections of organic shapes. 
Modulated profiles can be generated using arbitrary cross sections and guide lines from the new fish hook library.
On top of that, the user interface is completely redefined: All settings and profile modifications are displayed immediately.
Managing PYTHA Libraries
The new “fish hook” icon makes loading library elements simple.
By picking the icon, a dialog is opened and your library elements are graphically listed in a column.
Group Structure
PYTHA allows to place parts into group structures. You can comfortably drag and drop parts into a group, rename them or simply select a group by clicking it in the group list.

PYTHA Workshop  Application
Using its patented footprint technology, PYTHA ‘Workshop’ automatically creates construction methods for pieces of furniture (dowel, screw, cam & dowel, etc.). Edgebanding, router paths and other manufacturing tasks can be assigned directly to the 3D model. This data can then be transferred to a CAM postprocessor, and takes into account many factors on project execution:
•    Automatically generates boreholes
•    Integrated miter and joinery connections
•    Edgebanding assignment
•    Own boreholes definition
•    Routing of parts and edges
•    Sawing
•    Nesting and part optimization
•    Grain direction
•    Label Plotting
•    CNC connection
PYTHA says its Workshop is easy to use for speeding up productivity.

PYTHA advantages include
•    2D and 3D construction within one system
•    Easy and intuitive meaning a fast learning curve
•    Integrated parts list
•    High end presentation of your designs
•    Fast technical drawings 
•    Associative sections
•    Saw optimization and nesting
•    Data interface and seamless integration to CNC machines
•    Extensive parts library (fittings, profiles…)
•    One-stop integrated solution
•    Made with German precision
