Attached is a model of a multi-body part. The upper body is very simple and converts to sheet metal without any problem. The lower body, however, is causing me grief! I can't seem to get it to convert to sheet metal. Can anyone help?
This is one of those cases where it would be better to create the model using the Sheet Metal tools.
Use the Lofted Bend tool to create the lower body, and a regular extrude for the upper.
Thanks for your response! The Lofted Bends tool worked like a champ! Can you enlighten me about the "Freeform Bends" that appear in your feature tree? I ended up with Round Bends when I used the Lofted bends tool.
That depends on the Manufacturing Method option used.
Bent = Round
Formed = Freeform
