Hello everyone!

Is it possible to flatten using the NX sheet metal?

I suspect it is not and I need to emulate flattening using the regular NX modeling tools, but maybe?

Hi @Scaffold

Yes you can.  You just need to do it in two stages, see attached.

@Frank: very efficient. I like it.

 

I wonder if its possible, to do it with only 1 secondary contour flange.

I didn't try but I made a quick reflection on that;

If your goal is to have the least features, it might work. But that would mean that the secondary contour flange would need to start on a cone.

A cone means a Lofted Flange; and creating that Lofted Flange means two sketches...

And with the Lofted Flange you might have a very hard time to get the exact position of the bend between Lofted Flange and Contour Flange.

@frank_nx: I think, you're right. every attempt to save one secondary contour flange makes more features or a lot more complicated features nesessary.

Anyway you made me curious and I did a quick try;

It doesn't work:

EDIT:

@Dave_Walker

This reminds for the Lofted Flange;

This should work in a future improved Lofted Flange Smiley Wink
