I want to press 36" long spoons. I'll cut blanks and machine dies for a hydraulic press. I did a model using swept surfaces, but can't flatten to get the print for the blanks. Do I have to go about it another way?
Why is "Surface Flatten" not available in Professional
Why you want flatten it? Printing will be done as pad printing. You don't need a flat surface for this metod. Printing before pressing may be damaged when pressing. But of course its possible.
You meed a better solution like Blankworks or Logopress.
I think you could use a strip layout from:
Logopress3 Strip Layout, Tool Design, Drawings, and BOM - YouTube
[NETFORM] FTI FormingSuite ProcessPlanner - Progresif Pres Hattı - YouTube
When you got it, make the complete tooling on Solidworks
Here you got a How to on tandem die
