I can't convert this part to sheet metal to which flatten, somebody help me pls.. thank
Quan,, I take it you already have this modeled and would like to convert to sheet metal.. You won't be able to do that. If you have SW Premium (or can use a file with the flatten feature already in it if you don't have Premium) you could (probably) use surface flatten and if done correctly get a close enough flat pattern.
Now,,, since you have circled just the hole maybe you just want the extruded hole? You could add an edge flange to the hole edge.
If you want the entire part made from sheet metal features you would have to remodel it that way. A couple of bases, swept flanges, and edge flanges.
I will assume you have a way to manufacture this?
thank you so much, I had done
can you send me that 3D files ? my email: email@example.com
What version are you on Quan? I did this in 2018 but could do it in an earlier version if you like?
Consultation fee Dennis haha
I am using solidwork 2018 now, I come from VIỆT NAM, thank for your support,Dennis Bacon. Can you send me the file which did draw ? I can open it to see
My entire world was Vietnamese for a period of 5+ years.. Doesn't mean I can speak the language though. As you go through the file you will notice a couple of minuscule irregularities. Also knitted a couple of slivers in the flat pattern. This is just an approximation of the file I see in your screenshot. Angles, sizes are approximated. I could probably spend some more time on this and iron things out but you will get the idea. Pay special note to the order that things were done.
Can you please attach your file.

How to add Edge Flange to circular edge?
Your product is for a die stamped part...
020- Stamp die
030- Punching and Plunging
The first one maybe will be easier than this one because a compound make trim all arround an one previus hole...depends how much money you have for this projet.
a stamp die with springs or gas springs maybe will be for define a better product but if some wrinkles are aceptable with the springs is enough. All the punching maybe will be allways at the end because you have the complete product form and the final position of the hole will be guarantee a ±0.1mm of tolerance position.
If you needs a big production maybe you need to think on a progresive die...and at this new case everything we talk, will be too different
That is interesting Ruben. I was thinking something similar. It looks like you have much more expertise in this area than I.. I thought perhaps it might require a shallow draw first, then stamp (press), then pierce and trim. I have made similar tooling but not quite this complex. Anything this complex (a lot of material to squash) I would farm out. I left the real tool and die making up to people like you! I was just a hack.
I design tooling here in Rual, but sometines design cabinets for gamming too (everithing on sheetmal) process plants (piping and structural members) and so and so. Each challenge what my employer needs, I need to make do able. But for eg. you got excelente expertise on sheet metal than I or for structural member Igor Fomenko rules...and at this cases I only read. Thanks for share knowledge pal...
If you need a good handbook of tooling I have something if you need it....
