I am new to sheet metal and need help with converting surface to sheet metal. If there is something wrong with the model please tell me, i would be so grateful if somebody could help me.
model is in solidworks 2013
Antonio... How important is it that you keep the same exact shape. The issue here is the 3 surfaces are not planer. Think of a blank of sheet metal - nice and flat then bending straight lines in a press brake. The resulting flanges and surfaces are all planer. Flat. Your "Boundary-Surface1" does not produce flat (planer) surfaces. They are twisted non-planer surfaces. Because of this you cannot use "Convert to Sheet Metal" on this.
How do you plan on forming this? Can we alter the geometry where we have all planer surfaces?
These are the surfaces in question. The rest of the part is no problem.
it would have been nice to keep the same shape but i made the surfaces planar and it converted to sheet metal, thank you very much for your time and help.
