I am a student. I am making sheet metal in SolidWorks 2014. I have been working with complex patterns (i.e. cones, cylinders, pyramids, and variations of each).
I have been having trouble with an offset cone (which my instructor said that just making a solid feature would work) and a pyramid. I am trying to make one solid piece for the pyramid. It has no bottom/base. Attatched is the raw construction line sketch of the pyramid base as well as the faces.
I have the metal thickness at .029" with the sheet metal forming on the outside, the base is 2" square, and from the center of the base to the tip is also 2"
