I've tried everything on this part to make a flat blank with no success. Be a big help!
There's a trick of sorts that will let you do it. See this thread:
Why is "Surface Flatten" not available in Professional
Search for 'seed'.
Honestly, its greek to me, but thank you..
..here's the greek translation... (is it realistic... maybe plausible??)
..and, using a sweep flange.. (not sure this is realistic either)
Thank you for attempting, I’ll review on Monday! All the best...
I do think neither converting into sheet metal nor designing a similar part in sheet metal is possible. But making changes in design may make it possible.
OK, what is your goal here? What's the purpose for the "flat blank"? Because this cannot be manufactured using sheet metal working methods. Some sort of stamping/forging/deep drawing will be required. There's significant stretching/forming going on that will have to be designed by a die engineer. Any "flat pattern" bodged together in a CAD package will not be useful for manufacturing.
I am VP of Engineering for a metal stamping and deep draw manufacturing facility. For some reason for years I’ve used unfolding to calculate blanks for stamping process. Worked perfectly each time.
For some reason I can’t flatten this model. So I reached out to peers wondering why or what I’ve may drawn wrong in this part.
Getting flat blank us my end goal.
