Hello everyone,

I have a sheet metal part that I need to smash into a differentshape. This tool was built about 20 years ago and we a revision tothe part that changes the outside shape at the end. We cannot feedmore material and then trim this shape, so we have to smash thematerial to get the desired shape. I need to create a forming toolthat will smash this material to the desired shape. when I createthis and then put it on the part, the part then wraps around theforming tool. This is not giving the shape I need. I know I willneed to play the profile of the forming to but how do I keep itfrom wrapping  around the form tool. I have attached photos Iwhat I need, what I am starting from and with my current methodgives me.

Thank You very much
