part to Sheetmetal Coversion new Funtion

hell edge users..

I have a series of questions ...
When you want to convert from part to sheet metal, it works well in the outward direction of the body,
An exclamation point appears inside. And not.
I am making a lot of sheet metal in the inside direction.
What is the reason for this?inner body.png

(When the picture above selects the body inside ..)

outer body.png

(This picture is for selecting the exterior of the body.)

If there is only one direction, why is there an arrow to select?

 

Have you experienced this experience?
How did you solve it?

Hi there @Hclee,

 

I would expect this to be related to the bend radius vs. material thickness, but also can be material collisions where relief would be.

Synchronous seems to convert it with no trouble, but Ordered requires a bit more tweaking.

 

 

Attached, is another way [using Ordered mode] I would convert an imported part file, then modify this for production.

Thank you for answer.
This is not one or two.
That's the part that needs improvement.

Hi ~ hawcad
Did you use the file I attached?
Or did you draw it alike?
Can you capture options for cover to sheetmetal?

Hi @Hclee

 

 

my example was done by myself, but I also can switch Your model to both sides.

 

Outside:

Inside:

And the next question might be, why You don't use this functionallity for the complete sheet metal part?

You also can select those greater bend radii already existing to get the side walls too:

Hi @Hclee

 

 

 

back and retou!

 

 

All bends and inwards doesn't work!

This makes problem in the connection area.

 

So what's about changing the model to the inside values and then creating the PSM outwards?

Hi @Hclee

 

 

 

and another way to get it:

 

"Just see the imported model You have used, which is a PSM only.

So I think those thickness, together with the sharp edges will disallow the convertion into PSM

 

So use the convert for the middle part of Your model and create a flange followed with a tab on the side

Thank you .. haw cad
I want to convert to sheet metal at once.
Converting to some extent and using the sheet metal function again
This is not the direction I want to go.
First, I need to study more and find a way ...
I think the outside is inside, not inside and it is definitely wrong.
