Picture pretty much says it. I can't get the bend table to work. It keeps resetting to K-Factor. The units in the part are set to 3 decimal points. I'm using the template tables. Any ideas? NOTE: click the image to make it clearer.
Good afternoon James,
I don't have an answer for you, however could you extrude the part and then add the sheet metal features? I have found more errors and other issues when I start a part with the Base Sheet Metal feature. Extrude and then bend works best for me..
Be careful about bend tables. The excel sheets will embed into the file. If you make changes to your excel sheet it will not update automatically. You would think because the filename is the same and you save it into your file locations for bend tables that it's looking at it, it's not. It's looking at the excel sheet in your part file which is the old bend table.
I am only guessing of course that you made edits and that thickness wasn't on the old table and your thinking because you saved the excel file and the solidworks box says its pointing to the same file name that it will propogate. If that's not the case upload your file so we can see it because there are more things it could be and I don't want to type a novel.
If someone knows differently please let me know because it sux it doesn't update automatically. Or if there is a trick to get all the files pointing at that bend table to update to the 2nd revision of the table ( tweeking out the length )
