Help Unbend/Rebend Sheet metal enviroment.




I'm using NX 9.0 but never I'm using the Sheet metal enviroment. I need some help:


I have a piece done in Sheet metal enviroment and at the end I did the Unbend operation. Then I see the part completely unbend.  But also I need the isometric figure. How I can see both, unbend figure and Isometric figure.  I need both of them in Drafting enviroment.


Apreciate some help

Hello @JCP,


You say you have used the unbend feature. This is normally used to temporarily unbend one flange, make a change on the model, and bend it back again.


If you want to have a flat-pattern, you should use the Flat-pattern option. Smiley Happy


If you now look under Model Views in your part navigator, you'll see probably the trimetric is work view, double click the Flatt-pattern to show the flatt-pattern, and do the opposite to work again on the model.


When you are in drafting, you can select which view you want to place on your drawing... the flat pattern should now be one of them.


Kind regards,
