The sketch profile for this feature must be open.

I get an error after drawing a rectangle and try to use Contour Flange.  The error "The sketch profile for this feature must be open." is intermittent.  I am also new in ST8.  Thanks.

Re: The sketch profile for this feature must be open.

For the closed profile, you can only transform into a Tab. The countour flange needs to be non-closed, to be able to receive other sheetmetal features.

 

Or you can make it as a solid part with thin wall, and then, convert that into a sheetmetal part, ripping off the edges first. 

 

(I'm in ST7, but I think the logic is still the same)
