opened this part today and i'm unable to flatten the part.
was working perfectly before and I haven't changed anything drastic since that, just changed hole dimensions.
any help appreciated
If you expand Flat-Pattern1 you will find four suppressed bends. If you unsuppress those it works fine.
I was able to unfold the part but I don't understand why the two flanges won't flatten.
Using the "Unfold" sheet metal command and "collect all bends" unfolds the part.
Hope this helps,
I just noticed that the last 4 bends in the flat pattern feature are suppressed.
Unsuppress and the whole part will flatten.
thanks guys so much for your help. don't know how I missed this and even less of an idea how they became suppressed in the first place!
