I've tried all my know how and cannot seem to get this to work. Can you flatten a dumb solid part? I've attached a sample of what I need to flatten......Any insight woul dbe appreciated.
If you remove the fillets and knife edges you will be able to get a flat pattern of the part. Once it is flat you can add the fillets and chamfer back to the model to get what you are looking for. I have attached an updated file for you to reference.
The thickness faces can't be sheared at an angle, and they can't have fillets or chamfers on them. So no, that part won't flatten in SW sheet metal.
Please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a small job for you if you are interested. Send me an e-mail and I'll send you the part. It'll be much like what you did for the part in this post.
