Deep drawing is one of the sheet forming processes, in which a metal sheet with mechanical operation, reaches the desired shape. One of the most important issues in deep drawing is the optimal design of the initial blank. In this paper, the main purpose is to design the optimal initial blank (with minimum circumference and minimum defects), for deep drawing of parts with a rectangular cross section. To this end, in this study, a program in Visual Basic has been written in SolidWorks software, in which a rectangular piece and press velocity variables take the tensile depth as input and design the optimal blank. Also in this program, blanks with rectangular, circular, octagonal and rhombus contours have been obtained; So that they are tangent to the initial contour. A separate program has also been written to display contour blanks at different times. The blank design program obtained in this study has this unique feature that for any type of rectangular piece and with any desired dimensions, according to the dimensions of the piece and the depth of tension, it will be possible to design the optimal blank. To ensure the accuracy of the program written in Visual Basic language, the results of the program have been compared and validated by performing experimental work. Experimental results prove that the blanks obtained by the program are of acceptable accuracy. In experimental parts, defects such as earring and shrinkage have also been observed in parts produced with optimal blanks.
