Can a 2" dia disk with a 1/8" flange all around be created in sheet metal?
Edge flange in SW2011 now works for non-linear forms
The Sheet Metal part would have to be manufactured with a press like a pop can.
I couldn't get the round flange to work in 2011. I tried the indent feature to press the shape, but it didn't like the fill pattern.
Check if this helps.
This was done with a sheet metal ring around a perforated base extrusion. Not perfect, but reasonably close.
ya that can be tricky
i'd probably just use a fill pattern on the top using a slightly smaller circle and let the sides be solid.
If you start with a round sheet metal base flange of 2" you can create an edge flange from the circluar edge on the outside of the piece. You will have to make sure that your bend radius is smaller than the 1/8" edge that you are wanting to add. Attached is an image of what I think you are asking for. Hope this helps.
I will give it another try. Perhaps my radius was larger than the flange. Previously I could not get an option for a flange on the rounded part
