Im Having trouble trying to convert this part to sheet metal is it posible?
Look at the model attached and walk through the steps that were done to make that model.
I am sure there are others who can do better but here is my attempt!
If Jason's part isn't what you want, you might want to move this thread to the SolidWorks/Sheetmetal forum. You should be able to move it with the Actions box to the right of the page.
Maybe this will help
wayne so do i have to have a flat surface to select on my part in order to make it sheet metal
Yes, It does not have to be much of a flat but than you can convert it to a sheet metal part.
I modified this so it has a smaller flat area.
ok so I started out with two plains and loft with perpindicular plains that had a guide sketch. than i split it to get two parts out of it so i would have thr right mitter cuts for latter. then i took that part and shelled it to get the thickness.
I tried to had a little flat to the part but it will not let me select the curved surface for sheet metal bend edges like in your model.
I finaly got it all worked out i learned that a splin line does not work very well for sheetmetal i had to use two arc lines then it let me select the surface.
I am glad you got it worked out. This forum is a great learning tool.
