Maybe someone of you will know how to create a Jog but using the spline to imitate the pressed part ?
On the first image I have used standard Jog feature - works well.
But on the second picture I added the blue circle line which I wouls like to use but cannot.
Thank you for any suggestions,
Solved! Go to Solution.
see if the dimple command meets your needs.
the Dimple command will create the wanted geaometry but IMHO has one big disadvantage.
The flatt Pattern doesn't show or consider any of those "bends"
The Dimple as a formed feature still sty as it is in formed mode.
I've just tested with body to sheet, convert etc. but all of them at the moment don't handle it correctly.
I thought that ordered contour flange on a curve will do it, but this only is true for a contour flange upwards.
And from there no further godd surface modelling will do it right.
So due to the fact that the flaaening will not do it as expected and the need the "Blank Body" at any way, You directly can form this surfaced body in part mode to create the blnak boody from there.
Until we will find a better way.
@hawcad very valid points!!!
About halfway thru reading your commetns i was thinking of blank body...
thank you for a good catch.
Yes, it is true, I cannot create a proper flat pattern using dimple feature,
I have spotted it.
At this stage of design The Dimple way is enough for me.
But it would be fantastic to have a great tool to create a dimple effect with a flat pattern in the right way.
Thank you for a quick response and advise,
