I am trying to end up with a tab sticking out from a sheetmetal profile as per the attached pdf.
Although I have created it it seems to be a long winded procedure.
I created it by drawing the sketch for the extruded cut, creating the cut then spliting the base flange to allow me to create a sketched bend on the edge.
By doing it this way I can achieve the flat pattern for laser cutting.
My questions are:
1 Is there an easier way so you do not need to create a split line?
2 Try as I may I cannot create a linear pattern of the resulting feature?
3 Is it possible to save the feature as a design library item for easy insertion into a sheetmetal part?
Hopefully someone can help.
