i am new to sheetmetal . i am using sw 2012. pls give tips to unfold this part
This is indeed a FORMED sheet metal part NOT A BENT sheet metal part. If you want to do blank prediction, you should look into products like 3DQuickForm or BLANKWorks.
This part is not a shape that could be flattened and re-folded in the real world without a great deal of complex machinery to be honest. It would be made using a single piece of metal in a forming / pressing tool or moulded from plastic. For sheet metal, the material is to thick, the radius angles are way out and the curvature makes it an almost impossible task.
If you still want it done, I can do it, I just think it's the wrong route to go =)
pls do it
you are correct about forming / pressing tool actually i want the blank size of sheet.to reduce the material wastage(length & width).
