Hello Edge Users ...

The following file was created by someone using nx to model SheetMetal.
I want to import this file to Edge and convert it to sheet metal.
It does not work.
Do you know what's wrong?

Hi @Hclee

 

 

 

the problem seems to occur due to the in accuracy of the translation

 

See picture showing You the difference in thickness

You easily can repair this using the Optimize function of Inspect Tools

After repairing You can create Your sheet metal part using the "Thin Part To Sheet Metal" button in ordered mode. Sync will not do this in Yopur case, since there seems to be connections radius to radius which arenot working in sync but do it in ordered.

 

 

See flatten pattern

Hi @Hclee

 

 

 

Yes but as said before, You need not changing anything here. Still run the Optimize command from Inspect tab.

This is all You have to do and then change it to Sheet Metal in Ordered!

HI~ hawcad

I have an answer.
I can not optimize to reflect anything.
Do you know what will change when you optimize?

I am not good.
Could you please explain it again?
