Some sheet metal tools greyed out

Discussion created by Nick Byrd on Dec 23, 2020

I am trying to add a sheet metal jog to my part but the tool is greyed out. I have tried two ways, the convert to sheet metal tool and the base flange tool. Solidworks recognizes the body as a sheet metal feature because I'm able to add edge flanges, etc. the sketch bend tool is also greyed out. I have other solid bodies and some surface bodies in the same part file. I have no problem creating the a jog on a sample part in new file using either method. I cant post the part as it involves a customers intellectual propery and Im bound to an NDA
