I am working with high strength steel grade S700MC and I would like to know if somebody here work with it and which parameters you use in SW for it. I think the K factor should be between 0.4 and 0.5 but difficult to have something accurate with our trial a 0.05 change a lot in fact. Or press brake software use the same rule for unfold S355 and S700MC for me that is wrong but I need your help for find out.

If you're going to need it just one time, then create a cut out in the area. Then add a flange will full face fillet. If you're simply modelling it yea, but if you send that out to the shop floor you may not be the favourite of the day though

I am making a box with the sheet metal flange tools. I have created flanges on the box. I originally made the flange with a length that I want to edit and am coming back to edit that flange but I don't see the flange length field for entering the length.

I'm requiring the bounding box area to be in the custom/configuration specific property tab so I'm able to use it elsewhere later on. I'm only requiring this on a sheet metal parts so I can do some pricing up later on. Its frustrating as i can see the bounding box area in the cut list properties but don't know how to link it to the custom property tab.

I have some old legacy cad created in a 3D wireframe format. Is it possible in SolidWorks to create a sheetmetal model from this? Bob,..

We are switching to Solidworks in our company. Previously we were using Radan (2D drawings). We would like to transfer designs into Solidworks.

First solid body method then sheet metal method is used to create this part. I have done using solid body method. In sheet metal method, block is used. I do not know this block concept.

Importing Inventor sheet metal into Solidworks I am fairly new to sheet metal design and have spent hours trying to make sense of importing an inventor sheet metal part into solidworks without losing attributes.

Part intersect itself after bending Hi All, the part I'm drawing its very simple, but solidworks refuse to accept it as a sheet metal, says the part intersect itself after bending. I've bent this type of part before, can anyone give me a light in how do I model in solidworks?

Bend Note Question How can I edit or change the precision of a bend note (on a sketched bend) created in a flat pattern drawing ? (e.g. UP 35.00 deg R1.00 to UP 35 deg R1) I cant seem to find a setting in document properties...

I have creates a drawing of a sheet metal part. The bend notes default to two decimal point precision. This is rediculously tight tolerance for a bend angle and am being told to change it. I agree, but apperently there is no way to change the precision in SolidWorks other than overriding the text, unless I am missing something.

Is there a way to show which bend option was used to generate the bend notes? We normally use "bend deduction". The issue we face is that sometimes "bend allowance" or another process is selected.

I received this part from a customer, and I need to unfold it. First I tried to remove and delete all the faces that would make it impossible to unfold, but still no luck.

This surface model needs to be converted into two pieces of sheet metal: a wrapper and a top. I've tried about a hundred different ways of accomplishing this, but haven't come up with anything that works. Can anyone help? The sheet metal should be 0.048" thick.

Hi, I have problem with step file. This sheet metal was created probably in creo and saved as step. I have no idea how to unfold this in SolidWorks without errors but in Creo unfold perfectly.

I haven't used sheet metal features extensively in Solidworks, so I am trying to create a simple version of a more complicated box that I am reverse engineering. The actual box has some more bends and rips in it, but I figured I should learn the in's and out's on a simple model before diving deeper. I have played around with the tools for several hours and haven't reached my desired result.

I am trying to get into more advanced sheet metal design. I have this part see attachments. I have Solidworks 2016. How do I create a welded corner that goes around the fold in the sheet metal.
