“I finished 2 designs and do strip layouts for quoting. We finished building the first die that was designed in Logopress3. Made samples for our PPAP process. It went smooth. Working on building the 2nd Logopress die. Thanks for convincing me to switch to Logopress. I’m glad I made the switch, should of done it years ago, when I think of all the dies I designed in 2d because I couldn’t figure out the [competitor’s 3D die design software]. I could kick myself. But all is better now. Thanks”
“I work for a very large metal stamping company that produces a large quantity of individual new parts and assemblies each year. I have been designing various types of dies with Solidworks since 2007. I would estimate that I’ve got hundreds of tools under my belt by now using Solidworks software alone: this includes complex progressive tooling with intricate forming as well as deep drawing tools. We purchased Logopress3 in 2011 and have reduced our design times dramatically, especially for progressive tooling design. But I use it for all manner of die design work now, with a savings in design time of 20-25 percent on the more complex progressive dies. That time savings is even larger in some situations. Logopress 3 has allowed us to design and build more tooling faster, with fewer mistakes than ever before. Thanks to a great support team, inquiries are answered quickly and intelligently. Logopress 3 is must have software for the fast paced world of the metal stamping industry.”

“I am very happy with the software and especially happy with the excellent support. As far as management is concerned, I know they are happy with the purchase of Logopress3 mostly because we are able to accomplish things that you simply cannot do in 2D. (My boss) likes the fact that I can create a strip layout for quoting purposes so quickly. I looked back through my notes, and I am now finishing up my eighteenth die designed with Logopress3. 4 of the 18 dies that I have designed with Logopress3 were done using the Save as With New Project Name feature. This is an awesome feature. There are 2 methods for doing this. Most recently I used the second method in which you do not have to create the strip for the second tool and wow, what a time saver this was. We were in a crunch to take care of a good customer and basically had less than a week to get two dies designed and detailed.”

“...I also have to comment on the tools in Logopress; it is so nice to have tools that work every time. I think the fasteners and the autosketch tools are the best. Not to discount the other tools but it saves a ton of time to fasten the blocks like you can with logopress. I also appreciate the templates and tool structure tools, these are the items that I was missing while using Inventor. Having the whole process from strip to finished design gives me so much more freedom to design; I am not spending my time trying to figure out how to make the software work. Making changes to a design is also much easier than any other software I have used, including 2D. What a time saver. Thanks to Logopress and SolidWorks, I am excited about die designing again. Four months ago, before I started using Logopress, my designs were taking too long and the quality was just not there. Logopress has changed all that.”

"Logopress3 has proven to be an asset to our business. Not only the software, but the support from Accurate Die Design goes beyond the call of duty. They are not just another software supplier, but more like a business partner."
Scenic Tool and Stamping, Inc.
“I honestly feel this is great software which aids a tool designer (and Company) immensely. This software has proven its place in my arsenal of tools to quickly and efficiently tackle any project. This software has also opened the door to other business opportunities such as draw dies (huge for us) and delivering quick and accurate quotes. I am lucky to have found LP3 and am thankful you are there with Customer Support. You and your team provide a service which is just as valuable as the software itself. Together you can’t go wrong. As I have stated before “You treat everyone like family that cares about you and goes out of your way to prove it.”
Sun Microstamping Technologies
"I started out using a competitor's die design software and I was never able to fully use the product. It was just too complicated and not the least bit user friendly. In my opinion there was nothing intuitive about the competitor's product. Every time I tried to use the product I felt like I was butting my head against a wall. Now I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the dullest. Switching to Logopress has completely changed my opinion of die design software. Logopress is extremely user friendly and intuitive. Two months after purchasing the product I was able to complete a 2-out 10 station progressive die from start to finish. (Their) support has been excellent. Any problems or questions have been addressed the same day and sometimes within 10 or 15 minutes. I was contacted many times by Ray before purchasing Logopress (something one would expect ...) but to my surprise Ray has contacted me just as many times since I purchased the software. Accurate Die Design really cares about their customers."
T & C Stamping, Inc.
"It was great seeing you again last week, and thanks for all the helpful tips and tricks. Please extend a big “thank you” to Matt for all his help over the last few days. I wish everybody would have such a fantastic tech support as you guys."
“Thanks to everyone for making this request very simple. It just reinforces Logopress and Accurate Die Designs commitment to great customer service. You guys are the best software company I’ve ever worked with; and I’m serious about that.”
Omni Manufacturing, Inc.
"I'm very impressed. Your support is outstanding the best in the business as far as I'm concerned. I've used many different design software's over the years so I can base my opinion on that. Once again thanks and keep up the great work."
"As you saw in the slide show I sent you, I have done hundreds of progressive dies in Solidworks, but your software brings everything to a new level to say the least. I love this software and what it can do. I do many progressive dies but also have very complex draw dies..."
Berkshire Manufactured Products, Inc.
"Having the software for a little over a month, I have designed 2 small dies and 1 large die. If I knew three years ago how quick I could design in 3D with SolidWorks and Logopress3, I would have done this sooner."
"As for one thing in particular I like about Logopress3 that would be the round draw module. This module has been a big timesaver for me. I have a customer that I design draw dies for and before I purchased Logopress3 I would spend a substantial amount of time calculating the draws, strip width, and progression. With Logopress3 I am able to design a strip layout for a draw in 15 to 30 minutes depending on the complexity of the part. If I need a quick strip for quotation purposes I can do that in 5 minutes. So like I mentioned the round draw has been a huge timesaver for me."
(Note: This independent designer was not trained yet in Logopress3 when he wrote these comments.)
"Once you've turned that corner from 2D to 3D you'll never go back. I know I never would. I've designed a few dies with Logopress3 so far and I know they went faster than they would have with (2D CAD)."
Strattec Security Corporation
"The combination of Logopress and SolidWorks has substantially improved our company's ability to respond more quickly and accurately to requests from customers for quotations. Our tool and die professionals have used advanced Logopress3 features, such as the automatic nesting function, to reduce the time of creating optimal strip layouts. Our professionals have achieved time savings in some instances of up to 75% when creating strip layouts and estimating material usage compared to prior practices. The support from the Logopress3 team has been outstanding."
Chirch Global Manufacturing, LLC
“The interference detection caught dimple clearances and a c’bore depth mismatch between my T.R. Jones pins and my stripper bolts. Worth it right there for me. (It also caught a tap depth that was not deep enough for the chosen screw length, which I thought was incredible)”
Buhrke Industries, LLC
"I can design small dies using Logopress3 twice as fast as I can using SolidWorks alone. With big dies, the difference isn't quite as high as that, just because there's more thinking involved with big dies.”..."We sure like it; it's everything you claimed it to be."
Oldenburg Metal Tech, Inc.
"We've been using Logopress3 for about eight months, and it's made the transition from 2-D to 3-D simple and easy. The software is easy to follow, and it's enhanced our tool building and decreased our debugging time by about 80 percent. I'd never want to go back to 2-D after using it." "I love coming to work now that we have Logopress. It makes my job so much easier. There are so many things about the software that make my job more efficient and accurate that I wouldn't know where to start."
"I feel that Logopress currently works really good and I can't complain about anything whatsoever. The enhancements with each new release are extraordinary and phenomenal! I would consider anyone designing dies in Solidworks who does not use LogoPress as really wasting valuable time! Ray presents information in a very clear and concise way and I would like to thank him for that. I would say that Accurate Die Design's Logopress support is 1st class and second to none."
Rozell Die & Special Tool Company
"Now that we used Logopress3 we can share our experience to the confirmed salary that:
- Software has covered all our needs with design, having reduced the time of development of a tool small type/median which before took 1 week us either the more, now it takes 1 day us
- Software is of easy understanding
- The attention and the response time of technical support have been very fast and have covered all our needs
- The extra costs and the setting times of the tools have been reduced until a 80%, in some cases have tried on tools of satisfactory form in the first assembly of test and the rest of the tools with minor adjustments
- In cases where we have applied changes of engineering after to have finished the design, these have been realised of form fast and easy"
"I recently had 2 jobs that had several changes done in the strip layout and design stages of the die. The strip tweaking and optimizations were easy to do, but for one strip, the part was rotated and flipped upside down from the original concept and although it was still work, I would have dreaded the task without using LogoPress3."
Quality Tool Design, Inc.
"Our move to Logopress 3 has been a very positive experience. After attending training classes at Accurate Die Design, Inc. we started using the strip layout portion in our die estimation as well as design. We find that we can make a more comprehensive and competitive estimate in less time than ever before. The 2 out strip layout functionality has been especially useful as well as the round draw module. We look forward to utilizing the die design capabilities in the near future."
DIEnamic Tool & Die Inc.
"Logopress3 provides an extensive library of Standard Components (punches, buttons, springs, fasteners, etc.) as native Solidworks part files. They can be inserted (with catalog numbers and all the corresponding holes) into the design with just a couple of clicks. Custom made components (die plates) are quickly inserted, resized and positioned into the tool design. There are also dozens of tool & die specific functions which greatly reduce design time. If you design stamping dies with Solidworks, you would be foolish not to take advantage of the resources Logopress3 provides."
Aggressive Design Services Inc.
“With Logopress3, our designers only have to worry about designing the tool, not about how to assemble it and how to place the 3D components, since the software handles that. And with material usage so critical, the software allows simple adjustment of strip progression and width, saving material and allowing us to modify strip in process without starting over. We notice much less slug-clearance issues and do not have to open up the dies during tryout due to poor-quality parts.”
BesTech Tool Corporation
“Thanks for the quick response! You guys are amazing to work with. I have been using CAD/CAM systems for over twenty years and worked with a lot of different software. Logopress has been the best software supplier that I have dealt with. Many thanks from the engineers here to your whole organization. Our experience with logopress confirms that we made the right decision to purchase and use your software.”
Lutco Bearing, Inc.
“P.S. Yves – My hat is off to you and your team at LogoPress for the superb product you have developed in LogoPress3. It provides users with a clear, well-thought out approach to die design, easy to use, and with plenty of flexibility for individual customization. The longer we work with the LogoPress3 program and 123GO, the better we like it. An important part of that satisfaction is the great responsive support you have provided. Also, it is no less important that you yourselves are designing dies with LogoPress3, which gives you a full understanding of the problems we face in the design process.”
L.H. Carbide Corporation
“After training and a couple of years with another SolidWorks 3D die design software package, we felt it was time to look at other options. We contacted Ray at Accurate Die Design who distributes and supports LOGOPRESS3, Ray was eager to schedule a trip to our facility. After the demo, Ray was gracious and left us with a 30-day trial with full technical support. Within the first week, we were able to design a strip layout and virtually a complete die using our own part. This was accomplished without training other than the demo. A few other added benefits for us are…all die sections, punch retainers etc, are all SolidWorks created parts that can be edited with or without LOGOPRESS3…Eager and excellent tech support from actual toolmakers and designers…”
Rome Tool & Die Co.
“We’ve spent a number of months researching 3D die design packages for SolidWorks. After careful evaluation, we have chosen Logopress3 based on several important factors.
A few key factors include:
- Easy to use and therefore short learning curve
- It keeps SolidWorks features intact
- Straight forward and very clean work environment
- Phenomenal integration with SWx
- Standard Components are excellent
- Drawings are very clear and annotations work very well
- If you know SWx, then you know 80% of LP3”
“AWESOME, OUTSTANDING, FANTASTIC!
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I noticed that you sent that e-mail to me at 1:32 am,
”WOW” that’s what I call service!
As far as how it went, it was a piece of cake. After I changed the “Z” positions on the assembly…
Once again, Thanks for all your assistance! I think Logopress is awesome! It’s so powerful and easy to use. If you have any potential clients that need to speak with a logopress user I would be glad to talk with any of your customers and give them some positive feedback on how well logopress works for designing tooling etc.”
Lutco Bearing, Inc.
“I’ve designed two dies with LP3 so far and I love it. Below are a few lines about LP3
After taking four days of training, six months of evaluating a competitor’s 3D design software Ray at Accurate Die Design came to our company and gave us a DEMO of LOGOPRESS3. The very next day we decided to buy LOGOPRESS3. Ray came to our company; put a new hard drive in my computer and installed LP3. I’ve designed two dies so far and the software is EXCELLENT. The service and tech support is OUTSTANDING.”
Triangle Industries, Inc.
“I AM LOVING THE SOFTWARE. I know I have not yet had any technical training, but I do tend to adapt to software faster than some, however I think that the ease of use in logopress is amazing, so far I have only been given cutoff dies and blank thru dies, no forming yet ( I am only half way through the 1st year) but Logopress is helping me save at least half the amount of work I normally have to do.”
Tella Tool & Manufacturing Company
“We have been using Solidworks to design dies for two years. We purchased (a different SolidWorks 3D die design software package) and attended a week’s training. While attempting to use the product, we were hindered by the software stability, the fact that the designs were not portable and final designs were not easily transferable to the customer. Even after training, we were unable to complete a design with the software and went back to designing dies with only Solidworks.
After downloading the LogoPress3 demo, we were able to start using the software to create strip layouts. We found LogoPress not only delivers native Solidworks strip layouts FAST… the Tool Structures (templates) and Standard Components Library are phenomenal in allowing you to add components to your design. The tools that LogoPress3 provides can also be used to design fixtures, gages, and other tools – not just dies. Best of all, when designs are finished, the files are all one area and can be opened in native Solidworks.
We not only found LogoPress3 software more stable, but realized that if you know Solidworks then you know LogoPress3.
Finally, the support from AccurateDieDesign comes from a team that actually uses LogoPress to design dies not just sells software. They are toolmakers like us.”

“I just ran a test on this and PERFECTION. That’s just what I was looking for. You guys are awesome. This was exactly what I needed, Thanks.”

"Logopress3 allows me to teach students more about die design in a shorter amount of time. One reason for this is that it automates the mundane tasks of die designing which speeds the overall process. Students can quickly choose from different styles and brands of die components found in the software's component library, allowing them to learn about various components and brands available in the tool and die industry. Once the students complete their design, or at any point during the design, they can click an icon and, using the software's built-in animation function, watch the die operating as if it were in the press. This includes the strip lifting and progressing through the die. This same tool enables instruction on clearance issues and other interference that often will not be discovered until the die is built."
