Hi guys, I don't know why when converting to sheetmetal, there is a cut that is added to one side of an opening. please take a look and if possible not to have it, I'll be happy.
It's cutting the part to create as close an actual sheet metal part as possible. The part that you created was solid so not bendable/formable.
ok, did someone have any clue on how I can correct that. Not that we can't do with it but just to learn something new.
You'd need to recreate the part, ideally as a sheet metal part. There looked to be some bits that may need to be welded on as well. You could recreate the part starting from the sheet metal feature you added, but that would just needlessly clog your feature tree.
Here's one way to fix it, be interesting why solidworks not able
to make that bend, you may have found a possible bug. I personally
on this one would've started as a sheetmetal part or used flat stock
and then converted to sheetmetal. I sent jpegs cause I've got sw2014.
here's a similiar method to Mark's example.
roll back and make center cut through all
then edit the convert to sheetmetal
add center section with base flange / tab
As a suggestion I would concentrate on the overall shape first.
Then add cutouts, holes, etc. "after" the convert to sheetmetal feature.
pretty funny that it didn't work at first but I really like the idea.
man you rock!!!
