In Inventor, I wish to model a piece of metal. I wish to create a loft between two (2) sketches, and then unfold the item. I am having trouble and I need some assistance. Even though my sketch geometry had correct material thickness and bend radius, consistent with the sheet metal rule, the part won't unfold to flat pattern. Why?? -MR
I have shared a Dynamic Block and you can download through the link below and also can watch video that demonstrate it how to use 2D dynamic block to develop a flat pattern of a cone that has been oblique Section. I hope you will subscribe and Like my video/channel. Thanks Download Dynamic Block of Cone Development
foxthegreat posted a topic in Autodesk InventorI am having trouble making a flat pattern from a sheet metal part. I can make a flat pattern from portions of the part, but not the entire thing. Is multiple bends in different directions too much for Inventor to handle or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for the help!
Hi, This should (on the face of it, parden the pun) be an easy task. I created a lofted surface over 3 scketched lines. The result is a niceCAD Tutor.zip curved surface. I then thinkened the surface and converted to Sheet metal. At this point I expected to just set the sheet metal defaults to the same 6mm as my thickened surface, and create a flat pattern. But Inventor seems to not find a bend and errors!! So I try Unfold, no joy....Any one got a solution, please? .ipt attached Many thanks, Jon
