Hi,I have created a part using Sheet Metal. When I use "flatten" icon, some of bending edges remain folded:
The part file is also attached.
I will be very thankful if anyone can help.
un Suppress these bends
The part on your screenshot is not flattened.
There is no unfold feature
The flat pattern is not activated.
So what is your intension..? If your intention is to show the flattened view, then upon creating the drawing SolidWorks will create the flatten view on a different configuration called SM_FLAT_PATTERN.
Also, if you've pressed FLATTEN and nothing happened, that means your flat pattern and features are suppressed.
Hello Alex,many thanks for your quick reply and I am terribly sorry for my mistake.the original message is updated now with correct image and SW file. I had mistakenly used image and SW file from my other problem which was posted previously.my apologies and warm thanks to you Alex,
Many many thanks Justin.
You were absolutely correct.
Thanks a lot,
No worries Mehdi
As Justin said, you have 4 bends that aren't flattened, unsupressing them should fix your issue.
Thanks to Justin and Alex the problem is solved.
Always there is a simple solution which I cannot find, no matter how hard I try!!many thanks to Justin and Alex,
