How i do a punch threaded hole in a sheet metal?
I attached a picture.
We do flow drill operation here to sheet metal parts and tubes. We have created design library forming features to create threaded holes like you want.
Is this library one that you can share here? It would be nice to use and interesting to see how you created them.
Sorry no, but watch this video:
SOLIDWORKS - Creating a Forming Tool - YouTube
Thanks Wayne, i will watch the tutorial and apply it.
Solved, i followed the video instruction from @Wayne Schafer
I don't think a thread hold can be punched. The thread hole can be made thru a second operation.
Yes, we know that, the thread comes after in the draft indication, im a Solid Edge designer learning Solid Works. The exact punch forming tool for the threaded punched hole was the big deal, the trumpf 3000 do the punch thing, the thread is another process after forming...Anyway, thanks for the comment!
That can be done on a Trumpf punch. Pre-hole, form, threading...

what I mean it's not direct punch as you stated it's thru 3 steps
What I meant is that you need a rotating head. Which isn't available on all punching machines. Trumpfs have indexing heads which makes it possible no matter what.
Yeah, when i send the drafts to the production, the pre hole and the punch form is the key, i just have to indicate if the thread is a M3, M4, M5...MN. The Trumpf operator knows what to do.
