Hi, when I flatten a sheet metal I get on type of flat, and when I have the same file without the flatten its different... how can I have both working the same way?
Do you have Corners set to Tear for both?
Can you attach your example files here?
Hmm, I just ran an experiment and got incorrect Unfold with Tear.
I guess, just use the Unfold for reference in creating other features and then verify the Flat Pattern when completed.
This is an option of the flat pattern.
Right-click and edit the feature:
Check/uncheck corner treatment.
Looks like someone has been practicing their quick draw..
Wow! I out drew Dennis Bacon!
Perhaps the sun's glare off my sheet metal part caught your eye just enough to give me the edge this time
That must have been it Kevin
The resulting glare from my cataracts are giving me problems. In order to keep my quick draw status I will have to go ahead with the surgery.
It looks as though you have "Corner treatment" selected in your flat pattern options. You should unselect that. You can do that by right clicking on Flat-Pattern(x) in your tree and selecting edit or in your options > doc properties > sheet metal.
