How would the shop create that? The only thing I can think of is to use a die to press that gusset into the formed part, and then I would be very doubtful it could be done.
I could be wrong and often am....but that doesn't look like something that would be normal to me.
I use it all the time and yes, it would require some kind of tool. But I fail to get why you'd get that message
You are right.This would have to be made in a separate operation. However, SolidWorks still shows the warning that I have attached. I have tried numerous options to see if this gusset feature continues to post this particular warning. After two hours worth of attempts, I am no closer to discovering the reason for this warning than I was when I first started. I thought that the feature failed due to giving the gusset thickness a different value than the default metal gage and that the inside and outside radii of the feature caused a thinner area than the default metal gauge. This seems to have no effect in this particular case. This example is pulled directly from "SOLIDWORKS 2016 Learn by doing - Part 1". After tr
The faces in the front corner intersect before you add the gusset. SW must do a check after creating the feature and finds it then. I don't know why it does not find it before
It's not the gusset. Hem1 intersects Edge-Flange 1. SW does not catch it until you add the gusset and it does a geometry check.
This is a better view:
The edges were created with the closed corner "Butt" option. Even after removing this corner feature from the model and rebuilding the model I still get this warning. However, after creating the simple sheet metal part I have pictured there was no warning. ?????????????????
When I suppress Hem1 the error goes away.
Also if I move the gusset feature to be before Hem1 the error goes away.
Even though the intersection is still there:
Very interesting. Thanks for the help. Maybe this will be fixed in the next Service Pack.
I think SW does not like zero thickness geometry, that is why that intersection is an error. Whey it doesn't catch it until you add the gusset is a mystery. You'd expect it to be when you create the hem.
