Strengthening Ribs on Sheet metal Parts

Latest reply on Mar 5, 2008 by Mark Fischer
We have sheetmetal parts that we work on for a company, the model files are in the IGES format.So they come into SW08 as an Imported object.
Many of the 90° bends in the parts have strengthening ribs in them going through the corner and SW08 will not or does not allow the part to be flattened or unfolded.
We have tried removing the faces of the Rib with no luck.
Has anyone had and experience with dealing with imported files and ribs?
