I am trying to make a sheet metal cap for this railing, I would like to flatten the cap out and have it laser cut. Any ideas on how to draw this as sheet metal. It has compound bends in it witch is causing issues.
Laurence,, I was able to do this relatively easy with a sheet metal loft (If this is what you were looking for). Started a new part in the assembly and converted your edges to two 3d sketches. The loft wouldn't work with that (curvature curves on the splines were wacky) so I tried fit splines. Couldn't get that right either so I simplified the splines (first had to remove the on edge relations) then no problem. I'm assuming you wanted .125" thick. The part is virtual and does flatten quite nicely.
Very helpful, thank you!
