  1. Hello everyone, I've been trying to perform a sheet metal folding animations on Inventor studio. But reach time I want to animate a parameter after setting the end value it keeps saying specified value can't be applied. I'll really appreciate it if you can help.

    Sheet Metal Die Bend Clearance

    Started doing a bunch of sheet metal bending and trying to streamline our process. We have 50+ dies all labeled and organized on a rack, but at my computer we don't have reference to these dies other than the bend radius. My thought is that if we measure them all and make models we would be able to check to see if the die will clear the bend. Is there any smarter/faster/easier way to do this in inventor through the sheet metal bending tab or punch tool? This question came up when I made a part to get bent, see example image, but the die relief clashed against the part on the double bend. Rather than make a new die to fit my dimensions I have to redesign to fit our existing die parameters, ie make the lip smaller so the die clears. The hard way would be to just make a spreadsheet of the dimensions and verify the clearance, but I want something a bit more intuitive for future use. I think solidworks had something like this but I only used it at school years ago. Any fun suggestions? Thanks!
  3. Hello there, I have a specific problem creating a flatt Pattern from an Sheet Metal Part. My question is: Is it possible by the nature of the material and geometry to create such an flat pattern? Notice the Sweep Path has an circular sector. If it is possible, how can I do that , since I'm a newbie to the World of Sheet Metal . Thank you Armin M. Alu Sheet.ipt
  4. Dear all, I am using inventor to create a box (five faces only). You can consider that I want to use it for holding water. I want to make the gap between those faces to be sealed (like the faces are welded together). How I can do that in Inventor. Also how can I show it in the 2D layout about this? Thanks
  5. Hello everyone, I'm having some some issues with a sheet metal part I'm working on. Im very new to the inventor software, but can work thru most thing i come across. Our issue: We are designing a chute to fit around an inclined conveyor inside of a tank. I have made the sheet metal part by lofting two sketches on separate planes. The issue I'm having now, is that I cant cut a section of the sheet metal for clearance of the conveyor. I seem to get an error every time i try it. I even tried to convert it back to a standard part and try to a do an extrusion of the part to get it to cut it out, no luck. I will attach my part, I have the box in a sketch that needs to be removed from the sheet metal planes. If someone could please lead me in the right direction of what I need to do, and explain what I'm doing wrong, I would highly appreciate it. Thanks everyone Inventor 2010 Professional chute help.ipt
  6. Hello, I just started a new job using autocad. I went from sign industry to laser cutting, folding, welding etc. This site has been excellent in getting me familiar with autocad but I'm looking for info on the metals we use. They keep rolling off codes and I'd like to know why one type or another is used. I've searched but the sites tend to be too simple or overly scientific. If someone can direct me to something like a reference guide with the main metal types eg stainless steel, codes eg 316, uses, advantages, disadvantages. And possibly what type of plateing the metals can accept. Something in laymen language with enough detail that I know why to use what when. Thank You.
