Hi there. I'm trying to design a pulse jet engine and I'm not understanding how to use Solidworks to generate the sheet metal template.


I've been following this Youtube tutorial, and now I've got the cone I need, but when I try to unwrap the cone and make it flat using either the "Convert to Sheet Metal" or "Insert Bend" tools, I get an error, where it won't let me select a reference side that generates more than a small slice of the cone.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the help!
