we get lots of 3D-parts created with other software than Solidworks. We have to unflat and create Drawings for our shopfloor.
Our way to get to the best result is:
1. Import the file
2. create a new configuration (one configuration is the sheet metal part, one is the original)
3. edit holes / fill up the holes to get the tap hole.
4. Create flattened part and drawings
For a better understanding, I attached a demo file.
Is this the best way to get to this result?
In the case that it is the best way: Is there a posibility to get it done in a semi-automated way. I have experience with the API. What do you think is the best approach to support the user (e.g. get all edges of conical faces on one surface and create a drawing + extrude to fillout countersinks...
Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
