I need to create a part as shown in the attached image. Is it possible to create it with SW sheetmetal features and also get a flat pattern for the same
Nope, SolidWorks only does developable surfaces in sheetmetal. There are a few companies that make add-ons for SolidWorks for flattening drawn surfaces. Blankworks is one example.
You will need two configurations to suppress the indents in the folded part for a flat pattern.
Hey Tony, Thanks for the reply. Can you please elaborate on this. I have very little experience with SolidWorks Sheetmetal.
The part i have shown is imported from CATIA. I need to create the same in SolidWorks and then create its flat pattern. I am unable to get to do the edge flanges after the Jog.
Thanks John for the info.
