I have a sheet metal tube that has already been done in SolidWorks. I now need to add a dimple ring near the end to help retain the hose that will be attached.


Has anyone done something like this that could supply a sample file? I have tried several method but cannot get it to work when I flatten it out. Material is .050" thick and the depth of the dimple would be .050"-.075".


Thanks in advance.
