Adding Flange To Twisted Sheet Metal Part

Recommended Posts

CAD911

Using Inventor 2013

 

I cant to add a flange to a slightly twisted sheet metal part. I created the part by lofting between two lines from a 3d sketch. Then thickened to my sheet metal default thickness. Then i coverted part to sheet metal. I can create a flat pattern. I am trying to add the flange to one of the straight edges that the loft was created from. There is no twist on this edge.

I also need flanges on the twited sides but for now the straight sides will do. I also tried to unfold thinking i could add the flanges and refold but i cant unfold the twisted part.

 

Thanks any help would be great.

Attach ipt file here.

Do not use standard Loft.

Use the sheet metal Loft.
