Hi Faiz,

It depends on how you are modelling the part. Either as a solid part or using sheet metal.

  • If created using solid. Create your loft as described previously.
  • Once the solid is created, you then need to use the shell command to remove the open ends and also create the thickness of the "pipe" section.
  • As a revolved object, you need to remove a section of material. (imagine the two edges of a cylinder coming together for welding.
  • Create a gap equal to the material thickness from one open end to the other.
  • Convert the object to sheet metal and follow the instructions. (e.g. thickness, k-factor etc.)

You should then be able to flatten the pipe/sheet metal.


I have not had access to solidworks for several years, so I'm tring to do this from memory.
