Hi all, question if the following would be possible to execute with sheet metal in SolidWorks. I have an artist illustration show a 90 degree angle but half way the bend splits in 2 separate bending lines. Se... Can a press brake bend a part like this? My intuition tells me no, but i'm hoping that you guys might know something that i don't. They would have to put the backstop at different offsets to accommodate the angle of t... I'm trying to duplicate this feature, my best attempt was using a forming tool. I can't quite get it right, can anyone offer help? I have a base in the shape of a "D" and need a flange in the 70-80 degree range. I am having loads of trouble getting absolutely anything to work. I have almost zero experience in sheet metal, so this is proving very ... Does anyone know how to avoid creating these strange merged bends (see attached images)? When using "Convert to Sheet Metal" I would like to be able to use the normal relief options rather than adding material a... I created a forming tool based on a model. I added a delete body to remove the referenced feature. I even broke external references, but I still got the error message "A form tool part cannot have external refer... I used Base Flange to make my U-shaped panel and then I added an Edge Flange on one side. The part fits the way I need it to in the assembly and, creating the feature didn't give me any errors but, don't I need a bigg... Hi all, I'm having problems getting bendline to export from slddrw files. If I make a DXF directly from the SLDPRT file (bendline1.png) then in the mapping settings Bend line up and down are available ... 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 pa... I'm pretty sure the answer is "No it does not do that in 2018" and "You have to make an extra cut to remove the remaining material"....but I thought I'd ask anyway in case there was some super slick trick. I'm... I am designing a sheet metal trough to be driven by equations, which means extruding the profile of the trough a certain distance. I am unaware of how to set up the depth of the sheet metal piece to be linked to a glo... Solid edge has this feature. I am using Solidworks 2019. When making a bend in thicker sheet metal there will be a small bulge, or displacement of material at the end of the bend. Specifically I am b... I'm trying to make a dxf sketch for a flat pattern of a growler to be able to cut it out of fabric and sow it together to make a growler coozie. Is there a way to flat pattern this shape? Thanks, ... This is a simplified example of a part that I am working with currently. The attached part was created in SolidWorks 2018 SP5.0 I’m back in the office, so I can’t test it with SolidWorks 2019 or 202... I want to create a sheet metal part consisting of two concentric cylinders using sweep feature like this: But I don't know how to flatten it. If the transition between cylinders is vertical, the flatten w... What the easiest way to make this go 360 deg? 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 resis... Hello 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, Öm... Hello Guys, I would like to have tear-extend type on left side and tear,obround whatever on right side. Is it possible? I sit on 2019sp4. The bottom picture shows preview, but I get an error.
