I can flatten the sheet metal part except Edge-Flange1. Can someone tell me why? Part is attached.
Please let me know if anyone can flatten the entire part.
Just go to the Flat-Pattern1 feature and unsuppress the two Flattens at the bottom.
There was another recent thread where the bends had become supressed ... any idea what causes that?
No, I just turn them on and away I go. Haven't found the trigger yet.
Somehow you managed to get the two edge flanges under edge flange - 1
Deleted one and recreated. Can now flatten
That's not an error - you can select multiple edges for an edge feature. The benefit is that they will all maintain the same bend angle and adjoining corners will be handled well. The disadvantage is that the you can't change the bend angle or suppress one individually.
What I should have said was the cause of the problem appears to be related around the Edge Flange 1.
By going back & editing (re-selecting) the second edge it allows the part to flatten.
I can't explain why!
