Flat pattern sheet metal drawing

SOLVED

Re: Flat pattern sheet metal drawing

Antonius is correct.

Perhaps if you are talking about sheet metal that is rolled 360°, then you can use the sheet metal module.

Your movie can not be watched on the Internet of our countries, would you please send me a copy to my e-mail(My e-mail adress is as follows:lengyu19881117@126.com)? Your kindness would be appreciated!

Re: Flat pattern sheet metal drawing

hello Guys,

I create this idea, and looks like this topic:

to have a default simplified rep in sheetmetal part (like assembly mode)

what do you think about it?

I already try the Antonio best practice, but I cannot reproduce it because the flat pattern still be my last feature.

Hi Hannah

Sheetmetalwork unbends always have a flat associated produced via family table.

You can arrange it so that the flat is inside the instance of the original family table, thus the unbend is the only extra operation and updates as its parent is edited.

In the drawing you can override the number_flat to make it read as the same part in the boarder field.

EG:

If you have the field in the boarder that is drawing_name:159 for the main drawing

and drawing_name:500 for the flat

You can right click on the field of the flat and over-write "drawing_name:500" with drawing_name:159.

This is something I do constantly.

If this is of any help, you are welcome
