New to sheet metal and have been working on an example strip for a progressive die. I am not too familiar with configurations and only started using them after I had already created my finished part so I believe that plays a role in my issues here. My strip was working fine when I decided to change the pilot hole size but after I played around with the configuration manager trying to perpetuate the cut through all my configurations I managed to break the strip.
Originally I was controlling the progressive bending of the part by turning on and off (suppressing) the various edge bends in the flat pattern part of the feature tree. I do not know if this is proper or the easiest/best way to accomplish this but now its not working. I think while making changes to the way I was punching out the part and the pilot holes I suppressed a bunch of components that I had to undo and now its not recognizing the part as having bends. I tried to use the fold feature and it would not let me select any bends and clicking collect all bends it collected the bends but gave me the error: "This part contains features that cannot be unbent". So now I am lost and confused because the bend lines still exist in the flat but it appears Solidworks believes it is just one boss and not a sheet metal part?
Any help is appreciated.
