Click to view contentI'm making a CAD model of a linear guide.

I had to do quite a bit of compression to fit all of them into… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi, I've made a sheet metal parts with a couple of bends and then mirrored the body (didn't create a mirror part) and it's now symmetric. The problem is when I go and activate the flat pattern (config or flat pattern function, doesn't matter), only half of the bends get flattened and the mirrored bends don't, how can I fix it? do I have to… (Show more)
