I need create a view like this (see picture). this drawing is for CATIA. but I'm not sure if I drew especially or CATIA can unwrap the top of the preform.
solidworks can unwrap this forms?
Sure Miguel. Please see attached:
In Solidworks you will need to draw this view manually, there is no function to flatten anything other than simple sheet metal shapes.
You can cheat by creating cuts in the cylindrical surface instead of threads. Flatten that and you will get something similar to your top view.
could you explain with an example? attached file
please. help me with a example
this solution looks FANTASTIC!! thanks.
but I think is fantastic solution for thread =< 360°. for => 360° don't works. because the thread looks in two lines no in one line like the example in the picture. maybe trim the sheet-metal solid and moving to the final line.
I will work on it, thanks again.
