Attached is a file and screen shot of a problem sheet metal corner.   My goal is to fill in a small notch of a sheet metal corner. Other than that notch the design is as desired. What is the path of least resistance to accomplish this?   The notch I desire to fill can can be identified with a tab late in the design tree. However when that… (Show more)

Click to view contentI want to connect a cylinder/tube with a flat plate and then flatten all of them. The picture below is what I get with non-sheet metal features. But I don't know how to achieve them in sheet metal.    For the tube and the plate, I can use two base flanges, but they will be two separate bodies, and how to combine them and flatten at the same… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello all, Shouldn't the program fix this part automatically? Why is it constructed incorrectly and I have to fix it every time. If this is my ignorance, please inform me!     Best regards, Ömür Tokman

In one of my steel parts there are 4 bends. I have updated this part and as such have unfolded, then modified, and then folded the part again. Now when I click on flatten, it only shows the bend lines for 2 of the bends (was only showing one but I have since resolved one of the bend lines not showing). Whatever I try it won't show the bend lines.… (Show more)

Hello all //referring to the file attached.   I am trying to flatten the sheet metal cylinder that has extruded cuts in it. But it won't flatten properly. Could this be because its a multi-body part?   In the end I am trying to get this to a .dxf for waterjet.   Thank you in advance,

Hello all,   We are a distributor of industrial sheet metal folding equipment. The control on out machines uses a DXF file of a specific format to define the part geometry, material, part thickness, and other parameters needed for programming the part automatically. Inventor can easily be configured to export a sheet metal part to the required… (Show more)

We are starting to use the PEM features from the SolidWorks design library in our sheetmetal parts (SLDPRT). We are doing this instead of making an assembly of the sheetmetal and inserting separate models of PEM captive fasteners into it in the assembly.   Is anyone else doing this?     Have you found an automated way to count the number of… (Show more)

I am working on a model for some large letters that are going to be built and installed on our campus. I have the font sized correctly and extruded using a thin feature and capped the ends to create the letters as (for now) 1/4" steel outlines with faces. I would like to be able to estimate both how much each letter weighs as well as calculate the… (Show more)

Doing a simple sheet metal bend, is it possible to add a groove/guide where the bend is, almost like a trench all along where the bend is to help when the bend is done in real life?
