Good morning all,
I always seem to have issues when trying to convert an irregular curve into sheet metal. Please see the attached file and the below snip. Its just a basic rectangle with a few bumps on the brake. I will give a template to the shop guy but would like to get a nice flat pattern on a sketch that he can use for reference. Its basically a parabolic curve sketch. I tried using sheet metal boss / base flange but that won't work. I can get the curve to a thin feature extrude but then can't convert to sheet metal. Any suggestions? I also tried "insert bends" with no luck. Must be something trivial I'm overlooking. Thanks in advance.
