Flat pattern dimension not correct in drawing

Discussion created by Guest on Jul 19, 2006
For showing dimension for flat state I used: unfold>insert sketch>convert edge you want to get dimension>dimension it>fold. All these should be done before your last "fold" feature in your sheet metal part. Then go to "configuration specific">create new custom propert>select this property>in "value" column you should click dimension showing flat lenght of a part (converted/inserted sketch).
Open BOM template in Excel>insert new column>define new name for new custom property>save BOM. Make drawing for part, when configuration will be changed BOM reflects different length of flat part.

P.S. no need to use DT for new property. "config. specific" is prefered.
