Yes you can use LoftedBends. Please let me know the following
When using Lofted Bends in sheet metal, make sure both of your sketches have the same number of entities, and there MUST be a small gap in each one (no closed profiles). Also, make sure the gaps are aligned with each other.
I agree The above image is shown as two parts.
Most manufacturs will form this part as shown above then weld the two parts together.
I don't think that your part meets Guest's requirement that the inlet and outlet be on different axes. If the axes are simply offset, then I think that a Lofted Bend will work. I'm not sure if it will work if the axes are at an angle to one another.
Well, you could cut the cone after the fact to get the inlet/outlet angles you want. If you did it as a normal cut, I predict that it would still flatten.
I just realized this question was asked 7 years ago by someone who isn't even a member. I get the feeling they are not still waiting for an answer...
This is still fun to talk about. Does anyone have a image of what the original request was asking for. I think Lofted bends is definetly the answer and these are not on the same axis with different diamiters.
I agree, this is fun to discuss. I was playing and this is what I come up with. Different diameters, different axis and can be modified to suit just about any shape.
I added one with complete circle. Chad
These are great! I see how to upload a picture how did you upload the files?
Once you click reply, look at upper right of reply dialog box and click on Use advanced editor. There you will find all that you need.
Wow thank you Chad!!! this will be realy help full. Lets start a new discussion on something with sheetmetal does anyone have any questions????
