Here is another option for such issues.


Copy 1 surface from your part that needs to be sheetmetal but will not conver.


Then do a thicken command on the single surface...


this will give you a constant thickness.


then you can convert to sheet metal without issue.

Hi @Johnson_BigMatt




this was also one of my attempts but didn't work.

I suppose this also had to do with the big radius surface which was a B-spline surface before repairing.


Normally this is the easiset way to import surface only (Construction Body) select a Chain a do a thicken with sheet thickness value.


In this case it wasn't succesfully.

I would assume the core issues is that a Nurb curve was used to create it and SE sheet metal and nurb curves can't live together. I would re-create the sheet metal using the existing model as a guide. Then you get to decide how many varius radii will be used to approximate what was imported. Reverse engineering at it's core.
