FMX: Video - New Sheet Metal specific Flexible Modeling tools to modify Sheet Metal Design Objects
Attached please find a video showing new Flexible Modeling tools in Sheet Metal that allow to recognize Sheet Metal Design Objects such as bends, bend reliefs, corner reliefs, corner seams, forms from geometry and modify them with new dedicated tools.
Note that you might want to use the respective recognition tools with the automatic option upfront to recognize all those objects on the model. The Design Object tree (secondary tree) will show the recognized objects. The new Edit tools (Edit Bend Relief, Edit Corner Relief, Edit Corner Seam, Edit Bend) then allow you modify those objects independent from how these features had been created and as such even on an imported model.
Tools that are already quite stable in this sneak-peek version are:
The new recognition tools (Recognize Bends, Bend Reliefs, Corner Reliefs, Corner Seams, Forms)
Edit Bend Relief
Edit Corner Relief
Edit Corner Seam
Tools are not fully stabilized yet in this version are:
Even though not fully stable, we decided to keep them in the sneak-peek version to at least allow you to try them out in basic scenarios.
Note that Edit Bend and Pull Wall actually handle the adjacent conditions (reliefs and corner seams) and recreate them after the operation. Both operations also automatically transform all geometry that is attached to the modified wall/bend.
