Sheetmetal flatstate preview is False when its a V shaped and chamfered

Sheetmetal flatstate preview is False when its a V shaped and chamfered

Hello,

If you create a sheetmetal in Creo Parametric that has a corner of a V shape, like this one below :

If we add chamfers to the edges, the flat preview shows incorrect dimensions :

The problem is that the feature FLAT PREVIEW relies on these 2 parameters :

- SMT_FLAT_PATTERN_LENGTH

- SMT_FLAT_PATTERN_WIDTH

These 2 parameters calculate dimensions related to the pilote surface. Can you upgrade the feature so it gives a correct calculation also for chamfered sheetmetals?

 

Thanks in advance

Also if you use extrude feature to remove material from sheet metal thickness, the bounding box dimensions are not correct.

You must suppress the extrude in order to get length and width correctly if basic width and length are modified.
