Can someone please help me draw this top lid up- I've tried several different ways..I don't know how to get the corners to emerge either from a destruct or building it up- Any help would be appreciated.
What are you having trouble doing? The corners or the cross-break?
It's hard to tell from the image ... are the corners notched or folded (crumpled)?
Sheet metal with edge flange on an angle. I don't really see anything else. From the the edge flange function you can edit the profile to get it to what you desire, its hard to tell if they angle out wards.
I can do the cross bend and I can do the miter flange or extrude it and shell it but I can't do the corners - they have a jig that pushes down all four sides at once and leaves the corners reliefed ?? I added a bigger pic- Don't worry about the cross check it's the corners I am working on ....
I am pretty sure that the only SW sheet metal feature that can make that shape is a forming tool - which you would have to make or find.
forming tools can do this but keep in mind that the won't unfold
I am not sure if this will work, but its producing some curves that would look like it could match the cornersSolidWorks - Sheet Metal Tutorial | Lofted Bends - YouTube
