How to use InsertConvertToSheetMetal2

Using: swModel.FeatureManager.InsertConvertToSheetMetal2(0.005, False, True, 0.005, 0.001, swSheetMetalReliefTypes_e.swSheetMetalReliefTear, 0.5, 1, 0.5, False)


I have tried

  1. Manually select face before calling InsertConvertToSheetMetal2.
  2. Selecting the largest face before calling InsertConvertToSheetMetal2
  3. Selecting all faces before calling InsertConvertToSheetMetal2


The "FindBends" bit doesn't seems to work as getting the fold details and thickness too.


If one does the process manually, ie click a surface, convert to sheet metal, collect all bends, it seems to work great and automatically get the thickness, bends and radii.


Has anyone had any success with this method?


Part I have been testing on attached below.
