Sheetmetal unbend

Sheetmetal unbend

Gurus,

I want to make a flat pattern or unbend this part but Pro/E won't let
me. Is it possible to unbend a sketch like the one shown?

Thanks,

Eric

Sheetmetal unbend

The Pro|E sheetmetal unbend features only work on standard press brake
kind of bends. in other words a single direction of material
deformation. Things that require multiple directions of deformation,
like what you have shown, cannot be 'unbent'. You might try a form
feature and the flatten form tool, although I've no experience with it
myself.

That and I've never seen Pro be able to hand a bend without a straight
surface to use as the unbend surface. I could be wrong or I may have just
given up too quickly in the past, but that's my experience.
