How do I make a twist in my sheetmetal part. I tried SM loft but the faces also twist.
The part attached shows a non-sm center section.
There's no part attached to your message.
HMM! I used the "Attach" link at the btm right corner of the message page, must be missing a step because it's still not attaching.
What am I doing wrong?
Upper right "Use advanced editor"
then you can attach a file
Did that, but when I use threw "attach" link and click open on the part file, it closes the dialogue box but nothing is attached!!!
Sheet metal loft works very well or the Sheet Metal Swept Flange feature, not sure on the shape for which one would work best for you. For the Sheet Metal Loft - you need two separate sketches and you also need to pick the sketches on the same end to keep them from twisting - also the sketch needs to be lines and/or arcs....
I tried the loft first of all, but the end faces also twisted so do not lies flush with the start or finish faces.
Are you using 2017?
Yes. I am using 2017
Managed to attach the part file this time!
Could you model you part and then use the Flex Feature to do the twist? or since it is a Sheet Metal Part, maybe try the Sheet Metal Loft instead of the Loft Extrude..
I attempted flex but same result. Maybe there isn't a way to twist and flatten!!
