Issue with modifying synchronous sheet metal part.

Creator

I am having issues with this really simple part and I am not able to understand why.

On the video I try to move the face and the radius that connects it to the part ... there has been no way so far. Either the radius is discarded as element to be modified or it simply disappear.

Is there any way to get around this issue? Am I doing something wrong? Should I go to ordered mode?

Hi @Solinpro

 

 

after more detailed analyze of Your aprt I've seen a gemetric problem in the edge area.

 

After deleting those 2 small surfaces (whereever they came from) and after setting the rmeinaing planes to coplanar, You now will be able to modify Your flange as desired.

@Solinpro,@hawcad  I also found that changing the Connected Face opion to Lift instead of Extend/Trim allowed it to be modified also, but better to fix the geometry issue...

Clearly great help from HawCad. Question is how did it get this way? Was this native designed in Solid Edge? Or did you import this or?

Hi @dcstaples

 

 

Yes this is the right question.

 

What I have seen - and not only with the latest version of Solid Edge - that sheet metal inclines to produces this small, tiny geometry under certain cirumstances.

 

This sometimes lead to not be able closing a corner, and so on.

Also the flat pattern doesn't look the best. There are small edges where one straight line also could be possible.

 

This is an area where development could enhance our SE

Thanks for your help.

The part I shared was created first in ST8 and then in  ST9 and the latest package available I deleted all the geometry and rebuild a new geometry. So to the question was it native SE, the answer is yes.

Hope this helps.
