how I can cut slot on a flattened cylinder so that when I roll it to cylinder the slot will be exactly at 120°? Can some one help please
Figure out the length of your arc on the od of your cylinder.. Use that dimension to define your slot length.
You could use equations to drive it in case you change the diameter of your cylinder.
thanks for that, I have modelled with that option. But I think there would be some other option .
Any way thanks for your help
I think in this case you have to use fold and unfold command.
Just model this without using sheetmetal and then use the turn this into sheetmetal after. I recommend using the feature found in 'Insert > Sheetmetal > Bends'.
