Hi, I'd like to make a blade weld on the roller, the blade is made of sheet metal, anybody can tell how to make this part and I can flat pattern, I tried lofted bend, then I got 3 bodies, and I cannot flat all the 3 bodies in the same time. Thanks
The way I understand this Simon is that you want to flatten the blade only. I also see that you are using 2011. If you have Fit Spline available to you in 2011 you can do this. Also since the loft is twisted you will not be able to to use the bent loft option which would normally give you bend lines but that should not be a problem. You will have what is called "Freeform Bends". I don't see this as an issue however. In my screenshot below I have my lofted bends (profiles from your geometry) in the part (gold color) without the chamfer around the top edge. Your blades do not have a uniform thickness. Perhaps you plan on grinding that in. I would send you my file but I doubt it would do you much good since I did this in 2015.
This is one of the "Fit Splines" for the loft profiles.
Can you attach the part?
Thanks for reply, how to attach the part, sorry I am here the first time
In the upper right corner, click "Use advanced editor"
Then click "attach" in the lower right corner.
Thank you very much for the instruction
This is your main issue. This part will be impossible to flatten.
You have 3 bodies in this part.
I am not sure (maybe someone with more sheet metal experience than me can answer better) but I think that you will need to separate the 3 bodies into separate parts.
With #1 and #2 being your sheet metal parts and #3 just being an extruded part.
Then you can get the flat pattern for each of parts 1 and 2
Then assemble them together using an assembly and add the welds there.
Hi, I think that the first bend on the large side is your problem.
You will separate in the bend your body
That part is going to overlap itself when you flatten it out.
Thank you so much Dennis, You really solved my problem, based on your suggestion, I do the something get the result as following, the procedure maybe different, but the concept is the similar
