Normal cutting a distorted flange corner ?

Valued Contributor

Hi (Sheet metal)

I unbended flanges and tried to normal cut a corner to make it cleaner.

But it gives an error ?

Hi,

I am not sure what exactly the issue is (without looking into the model). The corners can be treated in some ways (attaching a movie below..if sheet metal operation doesn't work for you then probably this will but it will be good to see your model first if possible).

(view in My Videos)

Hi,

To me your model looks good. Just one recommendation ...if possible then please modify the dumb BODY feature before Converting to sheet metal.

Hi,

Find attached the part. Does this makes sense to your case?

As i recommended earlier also..it will be good if you can get rid of these geometric discrepancies in the begining itself (before using CONVERT TO SHEET METAL).It will save you lot of manual effort.

Best Regards

These Catia->NX converted models are horrible Smiley Sad

  • NX 9 is used in this company I could not open the file...
  • This same thing in below picture I can't "normal cut" the distorted corner...(First unbended flanges and then tried normal cut)
  • "FAILED TO CREATE PREVIEW, VERIFY INPUTS"
