Is there a way to make a sheet metal part with overlapping bends to create rounded corners in 2013 SW similar to inventors contour roll?
Andrew you can use the Swept Flange sheet metal feature
Are you you referring to hems ? 2015 SOLIDWORKS Help - Hem PropertyManager
Im looking to create more of a formed corner but by bending a flat template. The corner of the box is sphereical
Can you attach an image of what you are saying. My English is not perfect
You can do it
Like Ingvar said, not sure what you want
I need the sheet to bend around the line creating a rounded corner. some stuff can be trimmed but it doesnt currently let me because of conflicting geometry
Use the Edge Flange Feature, you will need to adjust your radius and flange lengths but that's should be an easy one
You need to flatten and add a little extrude in the corner to close the gap
This shows what i need see how the radius's overlap this causes issues with the standard sheet metal. i used surfaces to do this
here are two standard features that might get what you want...
I am unable to open your drawing did you make this in a 2014 onward version of solidworks
yes - that is a 2015 file.
look at closed corner feature
2015 SOLIDWORKS Help - Closed Corners
I only have access to 2013
I've never done a bunch of sheet metal - are you saying the closed corner feature is not there in 2013?
not the one i need because i am doing a double bend it cant be torn
You don't need the closed corner feature, if you don't have that feature you need to flatten the part and add material in the bend relief area. I did sheet metal for years without that feature. My picture shows you what can be done, since you can't open my part, you'll need to figure it out, unless someone else comes along and shows you in an earlier version
are you saying the tear relief isn't working, or that tears are not allowed?
Tears arent allowed
ok - SW sheet metal does not cover cases where the material is being stretched, or bent in more than one direction at a location.
if you need a flat pattern, you will need an add-in.
if you don't need a flat pattern, don't use sheet metal tool - just make the box and shell it.
I'm really not sure what is desired here but I will give it a shot.
Is this what you are looking for?
Now I understand what you want. Had to read this a few times and am on my first cup of coffee. Let me think about this.
Thank you your previous one is the correct contour i just want to bend it like that corner in sheet metal
That is sheet metal. Base flange and edge flanges.
I think I know what you are getting at Andrew. Are you thinking all brake work and welding?
