hello , i want to add a pattern to a half cylinder then flatern it so i can cut it from material, i am having some trouble, i know how to use the flat pattern option in sheet metal but how do i use it with a cylinder
Could you upload either a part or picture of what you're trying to do??
I would start by drawing an arc and then making this arc a base flange. Then you can flatten the part using the unfold feature and then make a cut normal to the flat surface. Once the cut is finished you have to use the fold feature to make it into a formed part again. I've attached a part for example.
