Is it possible to bend/fold a sheet metal part like I show in the attached file? And make it flat afterwards?
What version of SolidWorks are you using? 2012 2013 2014?
Solidworks sheetmetal will bend just like a press brake, the only forming is with form tools and they do not flatten automatically.
The picture you show could be done if the sides ends start after/below the down bend.
Thanks for the reply.. The flattening would be a nice bonus, but I already guessed that it was not possible.
But I don't really get the bends in... I would probably form the outside (front and back) first and then make the bending with loft tools and such. Or do you know a better solution?
