Body convert then flatten curved part?

Question asked by John Summers on Apr 2, 2010

This probably has a simple answer (I am hoping)- I don't use sheet metal with any frequency so am not that familiar with it.  I have a master part in which I am saving many bodies out- some will be used as-is- others need to be converted to sheet metal in order to gather flat pattern information from.


Attached is one of many bodies that I need to flatten- is there a simple way to do this quickly without remodeling in SW?  I attempted to convert to sheet metal using a base flange but it deletes the body.  I exhausted my attempts at finding a similar example both in SW help and in the forums (I don't have SW 2010 yet so some examples I couldn't view).  Any help would be appreciated!
