I have a solid model id like to turn into sheet metal if that is the only option for making a flat pattern.
What id like to do is extrude the sheet metal off of the various faces such as the blue ones in the pic to create a single part. Multiple sheet parts would make up the model and when I make a change to the solid model it would change the sheet metal parts.
but for the most part id just like to have a thinner individual part from the solid model.
what ive tried so far is extruding the faces selected after creating a drawing for each one in the same part. This works but I have over lapping if I extrude inward, which is what I want.
Then I select the insert bends, it flattens but creates errors due to the overlapping and am unable to re-bend.
Any suggestions or options would be appreciated
