Recommendations for a Hinge mate that behaves like a book spine

Question asked by Leonard Dichiara on Jan 9, 2014

Hi All -

I have a project where I am building something along the lines of a gift box that opens up into two halves.

I want to model this so that I can show it in the closed and open position; the design is something very similar to the way a book spine

would work. Is there a way to do this is solidworks so that I could build the spine section (3 pieces I suppose) - the material woud be a uniform thickness.

If I built it as 3 pieces and mated the components Im just not sure the best way to do this (if there is a way to do this) so the material would conform correctly to the bending.


Any suggestions are appreciated.
