I need to make a jog on this angle.
I can make something look similar to what I need using the shell command.
Unfortunately I need to create this part with sheet metal.
Is there some other command I need to use?
I FOUND A SOLUTION, it may not be right for everyone; however for my application it works well.
Thank you everyone!!!
Make the jog,
Then make the edge bends.
Next unfold the part.
Cut out the space left between the bends on the jog.
Fold the bends back
Make a sketch on the side surfaces of the edge bend facing the jog and convert the entities.
Then make a sketch on the side of the jog with the bends convert only the top line ov the profile.\
For this part I needed to use a sweep, however for a different part I used a loft.
The flat pattern will not work, however it is not required for this job.
Welcome to the forum. I rarely use the sheet metal function, so I'm afraid I can't help, but I noticed that this discussion is in the My.SolidWorks section of the forum. If you will move it to the Sheet Metal section you will probably get some help. (click on "Move discussion" in the "Actions" section at top right.
This is my first time on this websight. How do i move this to the sheet metal section?
Also, since you're new to the forum, here is a discussion that I'm sure you'll find helpful if you'd like to take a look: https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/39793.
find attached, a rough example of what i think you require in sheetmetal. There are 2 configurations of a similar theme.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for the idea, however I need it to be a bend with no cut lines. like a stamped part.
It looks like you are trying to bend in 2 different directions. Once you have a bend perpendicular to one plane SW won't let you bend a bend. It cannot stretch the material as needed for something like this. You will likely need to look into some of the add-ons that are for metal forming or stamping. (I'm not a sheetmetal master but that's what I've picked up from other posts here.)
Try searching the forum and Knowledge Base for metal forming software.
Arnold, SolidWorks sheet metal is mostly bend, break and punch. It's not really designed to do flat patterns for die press and stamping. There are some third-party add-ins that do that.
If your part's uniform thickness, you can convert it to a sheet metal part. Without ripping one of the corners, you're not going to get a flat pattern out of it, but you can add forming tools and get a cutlist.
