How to flip a direction of a single or multiple flanges

I was wondering if there was a way to reverse the direction of a single flange or multiple flanges either in SYNCHRONOUS mode or ORDERD mode.

Hi @Shiv_Madan

 

 

 

for both environements You will be abkle to change/reverse the flange direction.

 

  • for SYNC
    You need to detach the flange, this "surface" feature now can be rotated using the steering wheel and afterwards You can attach it back 
  • for TRADITIONAL
    You simply modify the flange edge which will allow You to change the direction

Hi @Shiv_Madan

 

 

 

here is a video showing the procedure to change the flange direction for sync and traditional

That vid looked like Sync. In ordered I do no think there is a way to reverse directions. At least I have yet to find a way.

 

I already have an ER asking them to do two things. 

#1 change the bend angles to how much the bend is (in Degrees) vs how much the angle is from (180)

#2 this would facilitate behing able to change the bend angle from 90 to 270

 

In ordered, the prgram will not accept negative angles, so how do you flip the direction and maintain downstream modeling operations.

I did, he moved a Sync flange, not an ordered flange. The only way I have found to flip an ordered flange is delete and remake.

 

What he did is remake the flange preserving the flange design setting. The objects at the end of the flange will be new and not maintain relations to down stream objects and operations.

 

So yes and no. Yes He flipped the flange. but no the flange is not the same objects adjusted, they were remade during the selection of the edge to start the flange.

 

I'm looking for a way to flip a flange AND maintain relations to components of the flange.

The first flange was moved using synchronous. The second flange was ordered and he flipped it in the ordered environment.

Hi @12GAGE

 

 

 

the result of modifying the traditional flange is the same as it is with the sync one.

 

You turn the flange by 180 degrees.

 

So any further feature also will be turned by those 180 °

 

So Yes I changed the flange direction but it isn't really a flip

 

But this will be the same for the sync modificaton

I wanted to know if we can flip the flange direction  of multiple flange in one shot

Hi @Shiv_Madan

 

 

another situation of "what are really Your intends?"

 

If there are multiple flanges to "flip" this sounds as the part is more or less mirrored.

So would a mirror of an sheet metal part better help to achieve the wanted geometry rather than flip several flanges?
