Sheet Metal Loft and Flatten with Complex Geometry

Question asked by Wyatt McMartin on Dec 17, 2015

I am currently a student working on developing my skills in sheet metal design and generating accurate flat patterns.  I am having an issue creating a Sheet Metal Loft between two sketches and can't figure out why.  (I have been able to model the piece as a solid body using splines however SW does not allow the use of splines in sheet metal parts.)  I know it is possible to get complicated, accurate flat patterns out of SolidWorks so it is frustrating that there isn't more information available. (I have checked numerous forum posts and tutorial videos but have found nothing with this specific issue.)

 

Any help would be extraordinary as this is an issue I have been coming back to for months now and haven't been able to come up with anything... My teachers do not seem to be able to answer this question..

 

Attached is my sketch

 

- Happy Drafting!
