This is such a simple part, but I just can't figure out how to convert it to sheet metal. Can someone help?
Sure Bill - here are the steps I took with your model:
Delete feature Rip1
Select "Insert Bends"
For the "Fixed Face", select one of the flat faces of the part (inside or outside, depends on how you want it "unbent")
For the "Rip Parameters", select Sketch2
That should do it.
What version of SW is this created in? I can not open it, maybe newer version or corrupt file.
Remove the Rip1 feature, and just use "Insert Bends" and select the sketch line for the rip parameters.
I tried this, but get a "cannot process bends" error. Can you be more specific about how to do this?
I followed your instructions but still got an error. It turned out that "Bend Deduction" was active, rather than "K Factor". Everything worked properly once I made this change. Thanks for your help!
Take a look at my example.
Your method obviously works, but I'm looking for a way to do it by converting the existing Thin Feature extrusion.
