Sketched forms are many times faster than punch or die forms, but the current limitations make them not very useful. Probably 80% of the forms I use could be sketched if it were not for these limitations.
In Creo Parametric 3.0, taper angle max of sketched form is changed to 89.9 degrees, just like draft angle and taper extrude.
That is great. It solves half the problem anyway. What is the taper behavior on excluced surfaces?
Does anyone have a bridge lance Die Form that they can send my way? We are using Creo 2.0 sheetmetal. I cannot find a canned out-of-the-box bridge lance.
I would create a Sketched Form, but currently, taper is applied to excluded surface as described in this product idea. It would be good to allow excluded surfaces to also exclude taper so features such as bridge lances can be created.
