Anyone have any tips on how to create a crimp on the end of this sleeve? The crimp just needs to be at the end and on opposite sides as shown in the pic. I have modeled the sleeve already with layout pattern as shown.
See attached images
I would try to do it with a few lofted profiles.
Would there be any way I could use a Bend Tool feature or Sketch Bend feature?
I posted my choice though it's likely that someone else may offer that as a solution too. I'm hoping you don't need that to flatten.
sketch bend will not make that shape.
(a) forming tool(s) may - I have not played with them much - you would need to make your own (or heavily modify an existing one)
The tool used to crimp these I assume will be custom done by our machinist. What I might be able to do is make a tool in the program that will make a crimp close to what the part calls out for. If that doesn't work then what Bernie suggested might be the best option.
