Curved sheet

Hello, I would need help to learn how to bend sheet metal in the Solid Edge sheet module, I would need to bend a sheet with a radius of 200 mm and then develop it. I have tried it with a surface (sheet metal module) and giving a thickness of 3 mm (module piece) but the development in the sheet metal module is not good.

Hi @JuanNietos

 

 

 

of course, since You have not modeled a sheet metal part but a part only

And what You see as flat only is a "blank body" rather than a "flat pattern".

 

 

So for the example You have given, the best is, to start with a PSM (Part Sheet Metal) rather than a PAR (Part)

 

Then continue with a "Contour Flange" which only has one "open" circle (see sketch/profile)

 

That's it.

From here You can create a good and proper Flat Pattern as shown in example

Hi @JuanNietos

 

 

 

just seen, that I have used the wrong thickness of 2mm instead of 3mm.

Just change it in variable table!
