I think I am loosing my mind this morning. A few weeks ago a fellow WOSWUG member asked if there is any way to get a sheet metal part after saving a body out of an existing sheet metal part.

 

I tried that after the SWUG meeting and just by using the Insert into New Part command I was able to get a new part that flattened right away using SW 2015. Note that at WOSWUG meetings, there are no alcoholic beverages served!!!

 

I am trying the same thing today and I am just getting a dumb solid that cannot be flattened. Of course, I can use the Insert Bends feature and turn it into a sheet metal part, but that is not what I am asking.

 

Should I go see a doctor, or am I missing a setting?
