    Wrong drawing view of a sheet metal flat pattern.

    Diego Matiz

      Hi everyone,

       

      I have a problem with a sheet metal part and its corresponding view on the drawing.

       

      On the part side everything is ok including the flat pattern. Now, in the drawing for this part, after i place all my common views (front, top, ...etc), i finally call the flat pattern view, however it appears like if "mirrored", and in the text for the bend lines, where it should say "down" it says "up" and vice-versa. I tried regenerating the flat pattern on the part file, erasing and replacing the view on the drawing, but it doesn't seem to work.

       

      For the moment i cheated and modified the text on the bend lines manually, but it's not supposed to be that way.

       

      Any hint about how to corretct this if possible would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks.
