    flat pattern for PFC (parallel flange chanel)

    Mark Greenwell

      Hi

       

      Can I assume that I would not be able to model in sheet metal a PFC section and obtain a flat pattern.

       

      I assume this because for a 300 x 90 x 41 PFC the web is 9mm and the flanges are 15.5mm, so I do not have a constant thickness.

       

      If this is the case has anyone got a work around to obtain the flat?

       

      Thanks
