I need to design a PCB that will have a rigid - flex - rigid form.
I believe that the right way to model it will be in the Sheet metal environment. So I can design it in the folded position and then make the flat manufacturing form.
My problem is I could not find a way how to change the thickness of the model in the flex regions as it will be in reality.
Any idea on the subject will be welcome.
I use SE ST10
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did not know about this function.
I'm almost there…
Normally in PCB the flex part is in the middle of the Rigid part so I don’t get a connected surfaces.
I made an offset surface, so I will have a connected set of surfaces, but I cannot select them in the Blank Body function.
Any easy way to pass this?
OK, I would do it in the following way:
I took your ideas and took them to the limits...
I can now model any Flex-rigid PCB that I can imagine!
The principle to model this is:

You should really mark one of the other messages (could be multiple - all that helped you) as 'Solutions'.
In future, people wil not know which is the correct solution.
