    Recommendations for a Hinge mate that behaves like a book spine

    Leonard Dichiara

      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.
