Hi David,

 

You're probably better off posting this in the Student Edition forum [given the file type].....so those that have access to that version can offer assistance, as this file cannot be opened in the commercial version.

I'll take a look [unless another Edge-head helps first] when I get finish work later today.

Re: merging sheet metals

Dear David,

From your pictures I guess that you are trying to make an assembly. Your pictures show a curved sheet metal part and what looks like some sort of handle. You simply cannot do this in a sheet metal part. This is because the sheet metal part has to be a contiguous, constant thickness, single body. A sheet metal part is defined by the manufacturing process - bent or rolled in a single plane.

To achieve what you want you can either make an assembly of the two parts (one sheet metal and the other the handle part) or model it as a single part file.

 

Cheers

Mark

Yes, that helps.....the step you need here is called "Switch to Part" to create the [because this is not a typical sheet metal designed item...but not impossible either] handle, then switch back when/if needed. I have also attached a file showing the result.

Re: merging sheet metals

Hi sean thank you for your replay , but the solution that you gave is not what i wish to so , i want to merge between the round surf of the sheet metal and the flat surf of the handle. like i showed in the photo

 

thanks. 

Re: merging sheet metals

David,

 

If you look at the file I attached, I used a "Replace Face" (from the surfacing tools pallet) to do that, but in my example I made it as a solid, rather than a surface model. If you were set on using a surface there, then just continue with the surfacing tools, to "extend"& "trim" will get you there.
