Flatten part without planer face? I am trying to create a pattern for a ruff that I would like to fabricate out of sheet metal. I've created a solid body that represents the final product but I am struggling to find a way to flatten it.

Hello all, brand new user here. I just purchased Solidworks and completed an essentials training course. I plan on using the software to design packaging and will probably be using mostly sheet metal features. Unfortunately it will be several weeks before I'll be able to take the sheet metal class.

Sheet Metal Help I pretty much never use sheet metal, but here's this Part that I modeled this morning, and the client is asking for a flat pattern. Would someone mind taking a look at it and see if it can be easily converted?

For a school assignment I have to remake this sheet metal part and make a drawing of it. But now I have this problem, I don't know how to add this arrow with the 2 V(red circle). It's the gap where the metal comes together. I tried the note annotation but couldn't figure it out.

When i crate a dxf of a sheet metal part it creates extra geometry around the corners of the part. This extra geometry does not show up in the initial dxf view but when i reopen the file it is present. An image of the fault is below. As you can see the four inside corners a small box has appeared.

Is there any way to add reference information to gauge tables other than the standard gauge thickness and radii? What I'm interested in is being able to add supplementary reference info for each thickness/bend radius such as minimum bend to edge length, maximum bend length / tons per linear foot required for bending, etc. The idea would be to help users decide the appropriate radius to select for a particular part design based on available machining capabilities (die sizes, etc).

Hey guys this is probably a pretty noob question, but I am trying to create a small tab in a rectangle that, when flat, keeps the shape of the rectangle. Unfortunately, short of making two separate pieces, I can't seem to figure out the technique to create this small tab from the original rectangle. Any siggestions would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

If a gauge table has already been applied to a part, is there a way to update the selections within the part to match any revisions that have been done to the original table on a local drive or network? From what I can tell it appears that once a gauge table is applied to a part, the link to the original gauge table file is broken and a copy of the table is somehow saved internally to the part (If someone knows how/where this is getting saved, I'd love to understand this better).

Do all configurations in a file have to use the same sheet metal gauge table? Can you have carbon steel parts utilizing a carbon steel sheet metal gauge table and stainless steel parts using a stainless steel sheet metal gauge table in the same file? Gauge Table are applied to the Part not config. specific.

Sheet Metal Cylinder with bent inward tabs I am creating 2 halves of a cylinder and I want tabs on the top and bottom so I can mount them around my machine. I can make a base flange and then do an edge flange from that but I can't get the inward flange on the opposite end.

flatten error can you upload the file? It is hard to tell why if you cannot check how the part was built.
