I've done an edge flange and modified the length of it with edit flange profile as shown in the picture below. Now I want to remove the excess metal at the end so it stops where the bend starts. Like this.

Good morning, I'm trying to create a sheetmetal part of conical with tabs on the radius and and a interlocking tab in Solidworks 2014 with a flattpatern. I have tried several approaches and have searched for an answer already on the forums. I have already scanned these topics:

I am hoping we have some press brake enthusiasts here. I am a CAD designer who is trying to improve their knowledge of sheet metal forming (mainly air bending on a press brake). The company I work for has recently purchased a press brake to be used for in house prototyping and I have been tasked with overseeing the implementation of it (due to this being the companies first press brake there is no shop floor knowledge or experience I can draw on).

How intelligent is the detection of impossible flat patterns supposed to be in sheet metal? I was surprised this one isn't an error. not when folded, not when flattened either.

I am struggling to get this to flex, requires an internal diameter of 556mm I have tried pretty much everything. You could just use the sheet metal features to create this. See attached.

In this video uniform corner is obtained from using an Edge-Flange tool. Whereas I am unable to get it by using Edge-Flange tool. Only using Sketch Bend is giving uniform corner. What is the reason?

Here is an equation for the k-factor given by SolidWorks in the Help file for bend calculation table, with no explanation: The "lg(r/s)" is the part that gets me. I have no idea what "lg" is. (r/s) is probably the ratio of the bend radius to the thickness.

I would like it if there were some way to have sheet metal called out by what it is rather than just its material. For instance if I am using 1/8" aluminum sheet I would like it called out as such rather than just telling me that it is aluminum. I would like to condense my BOM table information into a box or two rather than being spread out across five or six columns.

I would like to make several cuts in a sheet metal part after the part has been bent up (they are too close to where the bends are). Is there any way to exclude these cuts from the part's flat pattern? (Since they wouldn't exist at that time and I don't want the sheet blank cut out to have them)

I was trying to use sheet metal to create a cardboard 6 pack box. See attached picture-I was trying to fold a sheet right down the center, and then fold the sheet again (like thin cardboard) to create a reinforced 6 pack handle. I can make the first bend, but not the second...maybe a better example would be folding a sheet of paper in half and then folding it again...any help would be greatly appreciated.

Roll flat pattern into cylinder? Hi, I am still working my way through learning sheet metal in Solidworks and could use some help rolling a flat pattern into a cylinder. I have a flat plate drawn and extruded already with a cutout pattern.

I am having difficulty trying to work the last bug out of my bend allowance table, but I cannot solve the last one. When I insert the gauge table into the base flange and select the gauge, everything is selected correctly. The command finishes without errors, and you can move on to say edge flanges, sketch bend, etc.

Sheet metal error I am trying to convert an imported object into sheet metal since I can not model solidworks (I am a new user) and I already have the exact measurements in this object. The problem comes when I'm selecting the edges and I turn it into metal sheet.

Can anyone explain my before and after image here? Is this just a limitation of sheet metal features, or the "Merge result" functionality? The 3 bodies were created via Base flange, Linear pattern (of the body).

We are trying to close the corner gaps for a sheet metal Water tank as attached, We have tried our methods (Which you can see in the model) but feature tree seems to be overwhelming for operations which doesn't really matter for design purpose.

I'm doing sheet metal parts in SolidWorks 2016. If I create a new sheet metal part, I get what I assume is the standard list of properties. But I've got sheet metal part files that were created in older versions of SolidWorks.
