ah ha. The trick is the axis and the profile must be part of the same sketch!

Did you remove the sheet metal part by moving an "un-linked" profile to a new file?


I was hoping to make all steps "live" like being able to edit the hem or bevel at the same time being able to edit the sheet metal thickness or diamiter.


This way, one file can be used for about 6 different barrel configurations.



In my "rough'n'ready" version, I merely copied & pasted your geometry over to a new sketch in the part environment.


Probably best to make use of "variables" for what your looking to do....thereby making changes based on those input values.

Re: Round sheet metal


I would probbly do something like the attached if I was doing it, but just depends on what you really want to do with it. If there is no need to flatten it, then using sheet metal is not really required. There are always 2 or 3 or more ways to model something. The trick, at least in ordered modeling, is to make the model behave according to your present and future needs.
