Good morning All,
Trying something different to develop a sheet metal piece but not having too much luck. I originally had a 1/2" thick piece from detailer that was developed in flat that had to be rolled to a certain diameter. I accomplished this by use of sketched bend and got a close enough of degree bend to make it work. Now the shop wants a 3/16" piece to be used as a template to locate the holes on a pipe. Since it is thinner, the flat will be a little different along with the hole c/c dims. So I took the original piece and selected the inside rolled surface and knit it as I believe you have to do first in order to later convert to sheet metal. Then I thickened this surface by 3/16". Now tried "convert to sheet metal" and "insert bends" but nothing seems to allow me to get the rolled piece into a sheet metal part. Any comments on what I'm doing wrong would be appreciated!
