Somebody has a better practice to add a constant radii of 5mm on this corner? I attached my solid file
Without looking at the file I would guess you have some minimum radius of curvature violations. Have you tried using delete face to clean up some of those surface breakups?
It also looks like a tooling insert? If that's the case, why do you want a radii on your parting line?
The largest radius I can add is 1.5mm and that can make it down the entire length by using a face fillet.
I believe Mr. Voss is correct.
There's some weirdness where I circled below. I was doing a sweep cut along that edge to see if that works and you can't even make a continuous spline of the edge. I had to delete the blue segment and add a new spline to get the sweep to work.
I tried for a while...but I need to add it this constant radius to prevent some cracks in the stamping part...I attach some pics.
At this path you must to have a constant radii to prevent too scratchs, it's a BMG component for automotive industry.
My die maker at shoop could use some manuals method but if I could add it at file I will machine it at our CNC milling
Yes Kev. I did it to your value but this component need a min radii of 5 to prevent scratches and cracks.
I would do a sweep cut. You should be able to get a relatively constant radius with a sweep cut and the right paths.
Looks fun. I have zero experience creating stamping dies.
If it is just to prevent marring from the top plate and your part feature is below the parting surface, couldn't you just do an angled cut feature in that trouble section to represent a chamfer if it is just to create a relief? That way it is still fully machinable.
As you can see the component #withe must to be transformed for this one
To this one, this is the reason you need to add a radii there...the sheet metal must flow inside the die. When you use too tiny radii sheet metal has scratches and cracks...
Sometimes, when I had such a problem, I solved it on the surface.Edge offset (which you want to round) and by 5 mm on the vertical and top surface. You remove these small surfaces Delete Face with the option Tangent fill or build surface with.guide curves.
...a way to get the 5mm.. sweep and trim and loft the rest, split, delete and loft.. I did a crude loft but if you take time with them it could be fairly clean? And,.. does it really need to be "tangent"?
I think that its simple way. Your model have a bad faces.. I find it when I check Curvature. After fix it 5 mm round is possible.
Done It With 5 mm Radii
Cool....you don't change original faces don't ya? Some faces came from product definition...
Some faces came from product definition and I can't change it my stamped part because it will given an erroneous definition when I will check it at MMC machine. Can you show me original face vs the new one?
the red one is the automotive component
I have only changed the marked areas. When comparing geometry SW shows the difference in geometry. When I measured it, it is between 0.002 and 0.003 mm. That is less than machining accuracy.
Why I couldn't give a correct to no one?
David is guilty. Only his answer can be correct! Collects points for beer. https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/214460?messageTarget=all&start=650&mode=comments#comment-1024944
This original geometry is very "tired"
Gap between top this "edge" and Rund path is about 1,5 mm It is what you can use for Fillet without change. This ""edge" is troublemaker! So... I thin that you must change only this and this from left side surfaces.
Here we got a complete product made it with a complete SW solution

Ruben,.. how many tons needed to form (or hits?) the main beam?
Thanks for publish!
Yes, a nice feeling when we see the effect of our work. Once, when I was dealing with product design, it was nice to look at finished products in the store. A different feeling than in the production hall.
The complete process for the beam are:
1-Cut blank RH/LH 254 Tn
2-Pre stamp RH/LH 242Tn
3-Trim half RH/LH 285Tn
4-Trim half RH/LH 244Tn
5-Bend / Restrike RH/LH 250Tn
6-Punch half RH/LH 180 Tn
7-Punch final RPS RH/LH 160Tn
