Please somebody let me know what I'm doing wrong. When placing the forming tool (louver) onto the sheetmetal I was able to see the louver. However, when clicking the OK, louver disappear and in error popped up. Thank You in advance.
Was the pop-up asking if you wanted to create a derived part? If so, Right click on your forming tools folder and select "forming tools folder" then try placing the louver again.
Yes, I did exactly as described. Still the problem occurs.
How thick is your sheet metal blank? Will other forming tools work. If so you may need to tweak your louver to work with the material thickness you are using.
*edit - Also you could do a quick test of making the material thickness small to see if the louver works then you know you need to update the louver for thicker material.
How would I tweak the louver tool? Please advise.
