OK so I've got these parts that I've been asked to convert to sheetmetal for a prototype mockup. I tried to use the convert to sheetmetal feature and it works great for most of the bends. Some of the bends are not exactly planar, there's a slight bend to them. It's not to critical that the bend even be there. So I've just straightened it in my mockup. I've tried it a bunch of different ways and was able to flatten the part but it seems like there should be an easier way. Also when I do get it to flatten with the convert it puts funny relief cuts all over. So basically what I do to work around this is, I do a quick convert to sheetmetal, flatten the part create a sketch on the part convert entites copy the sketch and create a new part and use sketch bends, also while in the new part I would try to take out all of the funny relief cuts it put in. Now that seems to work OK but it seems like a lot of work and a huge work around. So I figured hey why not post it here and have the guru's take a look and see what they come up with.
So if any of you have time take a look if not no big deal I'll just keep plucking away at it using the method I came up with. It works but it's cumbersome.
