is there a way to an edge around a radius and flatten. I wish this was an option
In Solidworks 2012 there is an option to add flanges to rounded edges.
For those of us who do not know what a vanstone edge is, can you post a picture?
This edge is made by rolling the metal thru some dies and usually a half inch is allowed in the flat
Yes, if you are wanting to roll the cylindrical portion from the flat flange ... but only if the flange is an incomplete circle.
No, if you are wanting to roll the flat portion from the cylinder edge. But if you were wanting this option, you don't need to create a sheet metal part because you would be unable to flatten it anyway. Just do a simple revolve instead.
