I have tried everything I know to try and change the corner relief to a round or rectangle. I can not seem to get it to work. Solidworks 2014 SP3.
Have you try to insert corner relief...
In the Feature Manager, right click on Flat-Pattern1, select or clear Corner treatment. This is assuming you want a square corner.
I tried that and it did not seem to work.
I believe it only 'shows' when viewing the flat pattern.
True, but It will only show a tear relief, I can not get the flat to show obround or retangular even if I select those options.
I don't remember ever seeing a round corner relief option in SW. I have seen both rectangular and round (obround, oblong) and tear bend flange reliefs though.
Take the attached file and change to a rectangle relief and let me see how you did it.
Just as I mentioned earlier, this was done by checking Corner Treatment.
If I select round/obround this is what I expect to see. Am I looking for something it can not do?
Being a welder I never liked them, you have to fill them. It's much easier at the brake to 'pull' the square corner in with a minor change in setup even with a bend radius up to a material thickness. If you run 100 parts you're also punching 400 more holes, with the added tool change and travel time. It isn't as fast as everyone thinks. If it's a laser, you can loop there too. Maybe less of a fabrication time hit with the laser.
What you're looking to do requires an Unfold operation, Cut-Extrude and a Fold operation. They way it is right now it will be suppressed in the flat because it is after the Flat Pattern.
We laser just about every corner relief. I am still trying to figure out why they have rectangle and obround as corner relief selection opitions when they do not seem to do what one would think. Thanks for you help Bernie.
Yes you will only see it in the flat pattern- SAVE IT IN THE FLAT AS A DXF - then you will be able to use it
I had forgotten this was added and I forget what release. I'm guessing 2013. Personally for the reasons given I would still avoid using it. Wayne, It looks like this is the answer you were looking for.
I normally use tear for the reasons you stated. But I had one of my Engineer co-worker ask me how to use the relief command since I am suppose to be the so called solidworks expert here. Thanks for help.
I tried this and seems to work for circular and tear but not rectangle or square.
Thank You Krzysztof
square relief works as well for me... I forgot to mention that i'm on SW2014 SP4.
