Hi @cubalibre00,

 

The part looks like it converted but the design cannot be manufactured due to overlapping faces.

Some things to check on your conversion though.

  • When edges are ripped, check that you have clearance between faces (advise at least 0.2 here to be sure)

You have a conflicting overlap of flanges.

So I quickly did some extra cutouts to free up some material:

But of course it's up to you to decide how it should be done in reality...

I also added some blends at these corners just to be sure the weren't touching anymore:

Hi @cubalibre00,

Using additional edge rips (add existing Convert to SM and remove small edges selected for ripping) with section can help to update Convert to SM with a better geometry. Bend Taper can be used to remove interference in flattened state. Attached part has been updated with this way.
