I have been having problem inserting this forming tool feature (gussett) into a formed sheetmetal.
keeps on getting error and will not show up. Can anyone let me know if my forming
tool has the wrong geometry.
Thanks in advance.
I think the sheet metal part thickness is not matching your forming tool
This is the error message I am getting
"The part's thickness may not be compatible with this form tool. The thickness must be less than the minimum radius of curvature for the form tool."
Please see this Video
Hope this helps
In other words you cannot have a radius on the tool that will generate a zero or less inside form radius as a result of using the tool with the material thickness.
I have 2012 version so i am unable to open your file please upload in .igs or in lower format ,may be i help you
Does anyone have a sample part with the gussett inserted?
I tried many ways with my part following youtube video and still no luck.
I am still requesting you to upload .igs file ,i can help you
The above video explains the form tool creation in detail.
There are similar videos available with more details in YouTube.
Which part fail? Either form tool or sheet metal
Please see the attached PDF File
You have to suppress the Gusset Form in the sheet metal to enable flat pattern
