Yes…there are differences in choosing Synchronous, or Ordered methodology when it comes to
working in Solid Edge Sheet Metal. We’ll examine what to consider when making that choice, or
when you might choose a hybrid approach. We’ll also take a closer look at some of the newer
commands in Sheet Metal and how they might best be put to use for your designs.


I never use Sync sheet metal because there is no way to isolate the bend from the flat. I can barley get what I want done in ordered. Sync is almost useless for sheet metal. Many features are not available to Sync sheet metal. So at best I could use Hybrid. Then I would have to deal with variable being either Sync or Ordered. To many cans of worms open up besides the learning curve of Sync where it automatically adds relations I don't want. If Sync would not automatically create relations it would be more appealing.
