Attached I have both the part and the assembly of a lid that i am having issues with...


to make the sheet metal part i am using the sheet metal comands and everything seems to work in solidworks works and lines up when i flat pattern the part it flattens out no problem as you can see... the issue i am coming across is when our shop people go to shape the parts with the cut out flat patterns i provide it does not line up.... i also notice in solidworks the flat pattern parts have a straight cut edge witch does not seem correct to me.... please help me im not sure if im doing somthing wrong. if the solidworks flat pattern is off or if the shop is slightly off on the bend its hard to tell....


Thank you very much
