Can anyone design the attached part in sheet metal (or convert it ) ?
Adel,,, Since SW doesn't like flanges at separate locations around a cylinder, whether it is modeled or converted, I had to do some hokus pocus with this. I made another configuration called "flatten", split the part into two bodies, insert bends on both bodies, did an unfold on each, then did a move/copy bodies to piece the two bodies together (along with a combine). The sheet metal "Flatten" will not work on this (unless you flatten each body individually) so go from one configuration to the other to go from formed to flatten.
your suggestion is good , but it is complicate also .
Is there another easy way?
Not that I can think of Adel,,, To me this seems fairly easy, but, maybe someone else will come up with something that will blow us away with simplicity. Anybody up for the challenge?
This is should give you a rough idea of a possible way to make the part.
I started out with a sheet metal profile, and started adding to it.
It is still possible to flatten the part like this, so it should accomplish what you need.
(There is a goofy Equation error, because I had a property that was also named "Thickness" in the template that I used - not a big deal, I just wanted to show a way to make the part.)
I use SW 2016 , & i could not open your file
I tried "round-tripping" the part (save as parasolid and bring it back in) but it didn't recognize everything, so here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what I did:
Not the prettiest solution, and in doing the step by step screenshots, I noticed that the separate tab does NOT flatten . . .
I'm thinking that Dennis Bacon may have the best solution for this, because mine seems to have failed.
(I'll mess around with it a little more.)
hi adel here is one sizes are not right it was just to give a direction i'm on 2017 if some out there can look and save for him on 2016 thanks steve
