Is threre a way to have a sheet metal cross section be used as the section within the frame tool? When complete, I want to turn the frame parts into flat patterns.

Hi Scott,

 

I don't believe so.....due to the way frame elements are derived, based on a single cross section profile, the relevant info for the sheet metal functions are not adhered to.

 

Not to say you couldn't convert the frame elements to sheet metal after saving them out.

Yes, Sean is right! There is no direct way, beacues sheet metal section is not supported.

 

Here is an example:
