How to draw this part? Sheet metal cylinder with overlap for welding. There is also shroud on bottom end and swage roll in the middle. How to?
Can you attach the *.slprt file of your attempt here?
What version of SolidWorks are you using?
I had nothing, because I was trying to play with features and nothing came up.
But finally I have managed to get something like that.
Still need to make that swage roll and shroud on the other end... im now trying to play around with swept flange
Use the Swept Flange Feature..
start with your top plane
Sure I got that. But still dont know how to make swage roll in the middle and shroud flange at the end.
Take a look at this post & solution here, looks like a similar part.
Ok I got the model and nice way of doing this from this thread: Sheet metal Round duct with overlap joint+flange
However it will still not be the same as per picture to have it bend without extra flanges and overlap on whole length including swage roll.
Lukasz Stanislawski - What I would do is use the Swept Flange to produce the flat pattern and if you need to add the swage profile for a pictorial view then I would just model that. That swage shouldn't affect your flat pattern development..
I think I'm going mad because I can't do things you advise me to do What I want to achieve is a overlap for welding + swage roll. Model has to be flatten. Exact copy of real product.
