I have done sheet metal modeling for a few years, using the base flange and edge flanges etc., but now I have moved to aerospace and hydroforming and have no idea how to flatten parts containing what I would have thought was impossible forms. I have included a model of an extremely simplified version of what i'm talking about, but I couldn't do it as sheet metal and had to chop away at a cube to get this.................please help, everyone here uses Catia, I'm the only Solidworks user so I have no help here.
