Hello everyone

 

Can you help me with this file? I want to make a normal cutout of the text, but the operation is always unsuccessful.

I want to make a cut of 3 mm but the letters O and A have to stay with de center filled 2019-02-12 15_23_12-Solid Edge 2019 - Ordered Sheet Metal - [Vdr nº225-v1.psm].png

Hi @f_silva 

 

 

I believe You will not be able to create a cutout with loose sheet metal ares (A, O and logo)

Otherwise those metal pieces will be lost at all and neither be visible nor keep their place/position.

 

You have to use a font with web/stencil to hold those areas.

 

And the question also will be, why to have a normal cutout.

A normal cutout only makes sense if the cut profil goes over a bend and will lie on two different flat areas

Hi there @f_silva,

 

If you're stuck using imported, or manual sketch geometry [such as the logo artwork] for the "cutout" profile.....then you will have to add small bridging strips into your part, in order to tether the text internals, just as the "Stencil" styled fonts do, as mentioned by @hawcad. It is a fiddly and time consuming task, but is the only way to get it to manufacture correctly.

Further.....if you can, or need more help, you could upload the file here, and we'll take a look. I see in you're image, the material is set as "glass". If that is so, might you be actually trying to show an etching on your model? - or are you going to cut this through??

The normal cutout is because the part is a curved surface.

So I have to create a tangent plane and make the wrap of the sketch into the part.

Hi @f_silva 

 

 

OK, this makes sense now.

And of course, this is the situation where a normal cutout is needed.
