I am trying to convert this joined part into sheet metal, but it is really giving me some trouble, so much for trying to make a short cut.
I could just redraw it, but now I am just annoyed it won't work. What seems to be the problem?
Works fine for me. I'm on SW2017, not sure if that makes a difference. When you convert to sheet metal, use the back face of the vertical section as shown in your image.
ARGH! I tried that already, it just didn't collect the bottom bend automatically, and it wouldn't let me select both edges on both sides of the round part. Not before now I tried to only do it with one of the edges selected. I feel silly.
I guess I just needed someone to tell me it was possible. Thx
sometimes SW just doesn't do what you expect until you ask someone else
Yeah what probably threw me off the most is this message you get when you select the other edge.
Working OK for me too in SW2017. I selected the bottom face in your image with no issues.
Yeah I don't know if it is me or the program there is to blame, it won't work if you select both edges that needs to have bends, probably because it's the same bend in solidworks chain of thoughts.
Uh, but I have another question for you guys, why does solidworks screw up my chamfer on the hole? Seems like Wayne Schafer didn't have this issue.
The convert tool will remove any such features and change then to 'normal to profile' Depending on which face you start with determines the size of the hole.
Ah alright, anyways a quick redraw, the join still saved me a few hours of redrawing.
