I created a multi-body sheet metal cabinet and now I want to add a flatten pattern details to the drawing for the four sheet parts.
Does SW allow for this option?
Yes you can have mutli body flat pattern into drawing.
I have tried the split command and it gives me an error. I also saved theses parts out to Iges, but lose the relationship.
is there another command I should be using?
No need to split, just select the body and add flat pattern for that. Let me add a quick video.
Here is the video.
I created a multi-bodied sldprt. Four different sheet metal designs within a sldprt.
I can hide the bodies except for one to flatten, but I encounter problems when adding configurations to the drawing. I would expect SW would allow me to split these four bodies so I can flatten and keep the relationship.
Thanks for your suggestions
You can still do the same. Just place view, select bodies like in the video above, and pick the view you need instead of picking flat pattern view.
