Sweep Cut - Pressed Steel Disc

Question asked by San Wong on Apr 17, 2014
Latest reply on Apr 22, 2014 by San Wong



We have a simple circular pressed plate with 4 cut sections for weight reduction.  When pressed I want to show the formed cut sections.  One method ive attempted is to sweep a profile along a path but want to keep sweep 90degrees to the part surface to represent the part correctly being pressed from a flat sheet.


I have also tried to perform this task in sheet metal using the punch / die feature but instead of forming and flowing the existing material it just adds.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
