Question

Why am I unable to create an etch on a curved sheet metal flange?

Answer

If you un-bend a cylindrical flange and try to etch on it, it will not work as the command does not support this condition. You can create the etch in the Flat Pattern model and use “Save as Flat” to export the flat with the etch correctly. This will work in ST5 MP3 or MP4.
