See attached SW2016 file. why is the surface shown below coming out different on sketched bend 4 than on sketched bend 5? they are both set back .1mm with their bend radius and bend position the same? The first bend is still on the straight portion of the part whereas the second bend falls on the angled portion of the part.

I have a very simple sheet metal part that I've been unable to flatten. I've searched the forum and tried many of the suggested fixes for other users experiencing a similar scenario: "The bend allowance of this bend may be too small". I could have re-modeled this simple part in less time than I've spent looking for a solution, but I'm seizing the opportunity as a learning experience.

I'm here because I have the need to metal sheet to dxf format, I can do it without problems, but the issue is that I need the resulting file to be a single closed polyline, because the cutting machine requires it that way. I tried configuring the options when exporting and I had no solution, I tried to also look for a Macro that has this functionality and I was not lucky either.

I need some help trying to make a sheet metal part. So I got my sheet metal part with the bend on the bottom flange and it unfolds nicely, but I can not figure out how to add the gusset side sections (shown as the sketched line) that I need. I tired using an edge flange then modifying the sketch but it wouldn't let me do that.

I'm a long time user and I was a long time contributer as some of you may know. Anyway, I have performed many searches on this topic but I haven't been unable to find the answer I'm seeking. I have a sheet metal part created using a Base Flange feature and I'd like to capture the flat pattern length in an existing custom file property called "CutLength".

I have learned about the new suitcase corners for sheet metal parts in 2018 Solidworks. I have been wondering, how would these actually be made in reality? So I searched around for how suitcase corners are made in sheet metal and I got nothing besides hits for Solidworks. So do suitcase corners even exist or are they just a fiction invented by Solidworks?

I am mirroring a sheet metal part, and the corner relief in the flat patterns do not match. How can I rectify this? Both are set to "tear" as the auto-relief option under the Sheet-Metal feature.

Dennis Bacon(or anyone else)I am still learning sheetmetal design. I do not like the look of the attached .sldprt closed corners. Got the job done for proof of concept but now I want to make it pretty. Would rather have it with a nice rolled edge like the MiterFlange7.

I was wondering if there is a feature available in the Sheet metal toolbar that allows me to bend a sheet metal with a fixed offset along the contours of a feature. The attached photos might help to understand my problem more easily. I would like to take the orange contours of DETEAIL B, to construct the sheet metal with an offset of 1mm next to the orange contours.

Sheet metal enhancement Here are 2 enhancements that I would like to see for when you have a sheet metal part with an edge that is not flat so you can square with a back gauge of a press brake or the edge is not parallel with the bend line.

Sheet Metal Elbow Segments We make quite a few sheet metal elbow segments here and I have done quite a few, however I would think that there got to be a quick and easy way to do this. I have my model setup in a 2D or if it's twisted a 3D sketch, then I make the segements depending on the requirements, (radius, length etc..).

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.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can give me some help. I'm changing the thickness of a previously created sheet metal part. This in itself is not too much of an issue.

I can't seem to figure out the best way to dimension the location of the two angled bends - both intended to be 90 degrees with an interior dimension of .422". Any help would be great, thanks!

If I use a forming tool to create a rib that would be added during our press break operation, does the forming tool account for any kind of bend deduction? Since this is a simple rib tool ("V" punch), I know I can do sketch bends to accomplish the same thing to get the bend deductions, but that is a pain in the butt to do for every rib. The cross-break feature does not work if you only need one rib as it only works with 2 ribs at a time. I also do not think that one accounts for a bend deduction

I'm rying out the new tab ans slot feature and it looks like it will be a big time saver. I use tabs and slots to aid alignment of parts that are plasma cut out of 1/4" sheet sheet. These are welded together not bent. I like to include a .02 clearance to cut edged of the tab help with assembly, but I need it to be only on the 2 cut edges of the tab.

I have a question. I`m trying to make a propeller in solidworks, where the blades are made from a sheet steel plate with 2 bends on it, you can see it on the pictures. But I`m having problems to make a good fit between the blade and the round center part.
