The attached shows what I thought was going to be a pretty simple part to model - it's nothing more than a cylinder cut by a plane. I need to convert this to sheet metal but can't figure out a way to do this. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
See the attached
Insert your bending prior to doing the surface cut, then it should work.
I just noticed when you flatten the part with a surface cut it really gets screwy, remove the surface cut and using the same plane that you did the surface cut insert a sketch with an over size rectangle/square and do a through all cut - then you should have a good part
I get a screwy flat pattern regardless of whether I use a Surface Cut or an Extruded Cut. Did your flat pattern work properly with an Extruded Cut?
As far as I know it looked good for the sheet metal application. One thing that happens is SW automatically makes the edges square, so you may need to alter the sketch for the cut accordingly
This is the mess that I got.
Here is snap shot of my flat pattern and feature tree
Are you on 2015??
Yes, I'm on 2015. Your feature tree and mine look the same. Would you mind attaching your file so I can see what you did differently? Thanks!!
Thanks for all of your help, John!
