Explore the Edge Flange feature, including edge selection, bend direction, and other pertinent options. Create an edge flange. Learn and understand the different options for edge flange.
Bend a sheet metal part by using a line sketched on a flat portion of the sheet metal body. Bend a sheet metal part in two locations using separate sketches. Sketch bend lines.
Sketch and loft between two sketch profiles to create a sheet metal part. Understand the requirements for the sketch profiles and the loft feature. Sketch the profiles for a lofted sheet metal part. Understand the requirements for a lofted sheet metal part. Set the thickness and bend line options.
Explore the Miter Flange feature, including sketching the profile, edge selection, and other pertinent options. Create a miter flange. Learn and understand the different options for miter flange.
Create an edge flange along a combination of linear and non-linear edges. Create edge flanges along curved edges. Understand how the flange position must be chosen relative to other geometry to prevent sharp edges.
Create a sheet metal part of constant wall thickness using sheet metal features. Explore the fundamentals of creating sheet metal parts using the flange method. Create a base flange in a sheet metal part. Understand the use of gauge tables and sheet metal options. Flatten a sheet metal part.
Convert imported sheet metal part geometry into SOLIDWORKS feature-based, sheet metal, parametric models. Recognize common sheet metal features such as Base Flanges and Sketched Bends. Flatten the result to view the flat pattern. Use a hybrid approach combining the automatic and interactive methods.
Create folded hems on sheet metal parts to strengthen parts and eliminate sharp edges. Use the hem tool to edit the size, type, direction, and length of hems. Add folded hems on sheet metal parts. Practice creating hems and editing the type and dimensions.
Import parts into SOLIDWORKS, then use the rip feature to create thin cuts in sheet metal geometry between adjacent flanges. Insert bends to convert the model to a sheet metal part to flatten and further edit the part. Import other file types into SOLIDWORKS. Use rip feature to create thin cuts. Add bends to part to convert part to sheet metal.
Explore gauge tables and bend tables which store default values of specifc parts. Populate and utilize sample tables provided during installation. Create and customize the sample tables to meet your own needs. Customize and create bend tables. Understand the use of gauge tables and bend tables.
Utilize sheet metal and weldment features in one part using a multibody part. Use fillet and weld beads on sheet metal parts. Create a sheet metal fixture on a weldments part. Use filllet beads and weld beads on a sheet metal part.
Export sheet metal bodies to .dxf or .dwg files. Examine and edit parts in the DXF/DWG Cleanup window. Export sheet metal bodies to .dxf or .dwg files. Examine and edit parts in the DXF/DWG Cleanup window.
Add a jog to an existing flange. A jog adds material to a sheet metal part by creating two bends and a flat from a sketch line. The mirror feature adds symmetry in sheet metal designs. Add a jog to an existing flange. Incorporate symmetry in sheet metal designs. Position a jog.
A multibody sheet metal part has multiple sets of specific sheet metal features in the same feature tree. There are also multiple flat pattern features. The cut list shows each individual body. Learn the process for creating a multibody sheet metal part, and also some of the uses of such a part. Use sheet metal tools to create a new sheet metal body. Use a linear or circular pattern, mirror, or move/copy to duplicate a body. Use Insert Part to add a body into an existing sheet metal part. Divide a sheet metal body into multiple bodies. Learn some of the basic uses of multibody sheet metal design.
The Design Library contains a number of sample forming tools, including embosses, extruded flanges, lances, louvers, and ribs. Learn to use these standard tools, as well as to create your own simple custom tools, to meet design needs. Drag and drop standard forming tools from the Design Library to form a sheet metal part. Edit a standard forming tool, customizing it to meet individual design needs. Set the stopping face and faces to remove within a part to be used as a custom forming tool.
Create cuts on both folded and flattened sheet metal parts. Utilize the link to thickness and normal cut options. Convert a part to sheet metal and use a curve pattern to make multiple cuts on a cone. Create cuts on both folded and flattened sheet metal parts. Convert a part to sheet metal. Use a curve pattern to make multiple cuts on a cone. Utilize the link to thickness and normal cut options.
Create a swept flange using profile and path sketches. Create profile and path sketches for a swept flange. Use the Swept Flange feature to create a swept flange. Define sheet metal parameters within the Swept Flange tab.
Explore flat pattern feature options including parameters, corner options, grain direction, and faces to exclude. Create a drawing from a flat pattern, adding dimensions and other annotations. Explore flat pattern options. Create a drawing from a flat pattern.
Learn properties specific to sheet metal. Use the Sheet Metal feature to control sheet metal gauges, bend allowances, and Auto Relief options. Use the Sheet Metal feature to control sheet metal properties. Use a gauge table to control sheet metal gauges. Understand and use the 5 options to control the bend allowance. Use the Auto Relief feature to contol the type and location of relief cuts.
