When saving a dxf/flat pattern from within the sheetmetalmodel envoironment I have noticed that the orientation of the blankis not how it is created. Although this does not cause anydifficulties I am just a little curious as to how solidworks ismanaging the dxf export?SolidworksSheet Metal

I had altered a Gauge table and I consistently get "Gaugetable is invalid". I had tried to get this to work for many hours and can not find outthe problem. Are there any standards for gauge table for formatting? Has anyone used the gauge tables effectively yet?

Im trying to model a belt guard and cannot seem to create either a miter or edge flange off a particular edge i need. I can do any edge but the one i need and the one time i did get an edge flange to work it gave me errors when trying to flatten the part. Attached are some basic pictures of what im trying to do. Ive spent a good 8 hours on a part that should take 20 minutes.

I don't know if anyone else suffers with this problem. When I try to detail a mirrored sheetmetal part I can never get the bend lines and notes to appear as they should but I have a workaround. After the mirrored part is converted to a sheetmetal part, delete the DefaultSM-Sheetmetal config created and then recreate the config manually and all bend lines and notes are there.

Hi, I am trying to make this structure using sheets. In the absense of guide curve in the sheetmetal lofted bend option, I had to make it as a part first. My guide curve is third degree polynomial. Now I can't flatten this using "Convert to sheetmetal" option.

Hi all, I'm working on a lofted bend sheet metal part, and having a hard time adding an edge flange on the end of the loft. The issue is that the end of my sheet metal profile is non-planar due to the loft feature. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks! SolidworksSheet Metal

I am doing a print for a stainless steel sheet metal part and I don't know how to call out this type of finish. I believe one of our vendors calls it "Time Saver finish" but my understanding is that is a brand name machine. What is the generic term for this that I should put on the print. Polished finish?
