Sheet Metal Material

Theorist

I am looking for a method to tie Materials/Mass to Sheet Metal Material file.

so when the user selects a particular material in sheet metal preference the density and material attributes are assigned at the same time.

Hello @bilekfe,

That functionality is in plan for a future release however is not yet available.  You can only assign manually or with your own custom code.

 

One important thing to remember is that the sheet metal standards file applies to a 'part file' whereas the physical material data applies to a 'body'.  So the complexity comes with multi-body part files and that is not yet resolved.

 

It would add leverage if you raised an ER with GTAC.

Thank you Dave for your quick response.

I will summon an ER.

Follow-up question

Can we have different bend radius in a single flat pattern?

Thank you for your consideration.

Bend radius can be driven based on material thickness and angle from the material table or changed manually for each bend.  If you have a specific requirement, I can work with you to advise the methods available in the standards table that works for you, just let me know.

If you share the ER, some of us that would also like to see that, can attach ourselves to it, to get more weight behind it.  Granted, CGR has much less weight than P&W does (I'm a former P&W Florida employee).

Hi @DaveK,

The latest ER raised on this topic is 9208381.  As I previously stated, the sheet metal standards file applies to a 'part file' whereas the physical material data applies to a 'body.  This is a key differentiator to take into account and prevented this from already being implemented.

 

I can assure you the company you work for generally has little impact on what gets implemented (in my view).  Not sure what weight you can apply in this way?

I've been told that by adding your name to an ER, that it will get looked at closer, ie like voting, or possibly get it moved to be voted on, in the yearly PLMworld vote.

Interesting, I was not aware of that Smiley Wink.  I got your ER Smiley Happy
