I have created a part using sheet metal that is formed around a radius (see images below). I need to put a hole pattern in here (air vent), and have been using a flat face on one side of the part to reference my holes. The workflow is as follows:
- Create initial formed geometry
- Insert hole pattern (using fill pattern feature)
Doing this doesn't work as the part fails when I try to unbend (apparently the split line I used to define the fill area, as well as the hole and pattern themselves (?) cause the unbend feature to fail. How can I put this hole pattern in and still maintain the formed radius?
