Hello.

I have a problem with the attached piece. I´d like to flatten it but I have problems with the upper part. Please, could help me anyone?

Thanks in advanced

Hi,


this only might work with a contour flange in traditional modeling not synchronous

The sheet metal flatten command will not work because the bend is not in a single axis.

 

What should work is using the surfacing type flatten command. The surfacing portion works from polygons rather than constant radius sheet metal bending. I can't help with using that as I have never used it, but I'm aware of that it can flatten complex geometry like this.

You might try changing to a part (file/switch to/part) to flatten. I use ST8, and have many parts that are not "traditional" sheetmetal parts, and I switch between part and sheetmetal to flatten.

Go FAST, or go home.

Thanks for your help.

Re: FLATTEN

Mary,

 

This can be done with contour flanges - but you have to be in Ordered mode.
