Alternative method

Hi,

 

A few months ago I had to model in sheet metal a component and create a flat patten for plasma burning.

 

This part came out exactly as we needed it to be. See attached Part

 

I basically worked out flattened size and bend line position and sketched these onto a blank plate.

 

Folded up, created an off set plane sketched the cut out then extrude cut, and unfolded to get the flat paten.

 

I would be grateful if any one would have a look at this model (done in SolidWorks 2013) and see if they could suggest an alternative method.

I am trying to see if there was another more efficient / speedier way of doing this part.

 

As I have said this way came out exactly like it should, so any other method would have to produce same results

 

Please do not be to critical

 

Thanks

 

Mark (SolidWorks 2014)
