Hole created by solid punch or drown cutout

Phenom

Hi,

holes in sheet metal can be created by laser machine or by solid punch or drown cutout feature.

It's clear that flat pattern must obmit curves created by solid punch or drown cutout. I try to obtain this hidden unchecking interior feature in the flat pattern setting, but holes reamin.

Apart hide manually those holes, exist and automatic setting to hide solid punch or drown cutout feature ?

Thank you...

uncheck the Interiour Feature is not enough, I believe you haven't unchecked Interiour Cutouts.

In NX 12 there is the option to substitute small holes depending on size by centermarks.

But maybe I misunderstood something, then a part or screenshot should be posted.

Hi @Thomas_K,

I can't uncheck Interiour Cutouts because all internl cutouts become hidden.

OK, now I get it. You want to hide only certain holes/cutouts.

Workaround: Create a Flat Solid instead of a Flat Pattern. "Manipulate" the FS (close these holes which you don't want to be displayed) and create a FP from the FS.

Hi to all,
thank you for the support.
Create extra body need to be manipulated in the reference set.
To attend NX 1849 or different number :-), I hide extra hole in the flat pattern.
Thank you...
