I am trying to add a cut to a Unfolded part then Fold again, but the part won't Fold if the cut goes past the bend line. Its a pretty basic part, I think. Does anyone have a suggestion? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I drew you part and added a very small flat section (.010 in) at the top of the big diameter. I then unfolded the the one side of the part and did a cut past the bend line everything folded back up nicely
The cut feature does not seem to have a problem on the opposite side of the part where the cut crosses the bend line, just the one side has issues. I'll try the flat section technique to see if that works.
You can also do cut extrude in the folded part and then can check for any issues by flattening it.
I could do it in the folded state, but I want to give the vendor a nice flat file for laser cutting.
If I move the cut to only cross the inner bend line then it works, but it does not like to cross both bendlines at the same time.
Ok, Got it figured out. I was cutting through the edge that was referenced in the Fold feature. After referencing a different edge for the Fold feature it worked well.
Thanks for the suggestions. Hope this helps someone else down the road.
