Looking on sugestions on converting this file to sheet metal to unfold and laser cut? Not sure is this is a good part for lofted bends, dont have a lot of experience with lofts?
Thanks and happy holidays! Chris
you won't be able to convert the existing baffle but if you start with a new part you can add sheetmetal feature.
after which i would use the unfold feature to add the holes (while part was flat).
i left it as a single piece but you could easily split into two.
Why can I not convert this file. (I didnt think this would be possible) I need to tell my boss something, he thinks because I have SW I should be able to "push a button" and get a flat pattern?
you can "push a button" and get a flat with the part i created.
this is true for most "imported" prismatic models.
however, what you have falls into a different classification.
or ask the boss to show you which "button to push"
Yup, in the world I live in everything is 10 minutes and standard tooling! LOL
I finally got the PO for this one and I'm trying to move the seam from the corner to the middle of the small flat for a butt weld but I am having trouble with this? Can you advise how I might move the seam?
