3 Flange Options Position of a Flange with respect to the existing sheet edge is determimend by. Position of a Flange with respect to the existing sheet edge is determimend by. - Material inside - Material Outside - Bend Outside. The flange length may be determine by defining the distance to the nearer or further face. The flange length may be determine by defining the distance to the nearer or further face. - Inide dimension - Outside dimension

4 Sheet Metal Plus Jog Jog Close Corner Close Corner Lofted Flange Lofted Flange Dimple Dimple Louver Louver Drawn Cutout Drawn Cutout

5 Lofted Flange Loft Between Two Profiles Loft Between Two Profiles Bends are Developable Ruled Surfaces Where Possible Bends are Developable Ruled Surfaces Where Possible - If not possible then the bend cannot be flattened

6 Contour Flange “Sweep” Along a Chain of Edges “Sweep” Along a Chain of Edges - Bisects the angle at a corner and miters - Gap is a function of the bend radius

7 Close Corner “Water Tight” Corner “Water Tight” Corner - Miter option - Circular cutout option

8 Jog “Split” Face and Transform “Split” Face and Transform

9 Bend Bend Around a Line Bend Around a Line - Bend angle - Bend direction - Material position - Bend now or later

10 Deformation Features Dimple Dimple Drawn Cutout Drawn Cutout Louver Louver - Formed end or lanced end

11 Wrapped Feature w/ Contour Flange

12 Miter Corner with Contour Flange

13 Only applies to Contour Flange command Only applies to Contour Flange command Option available on Miter Tab of Contour Flange Options dialog box Option available on Miter Tab of Contour Flange Options dialog box Mitered corner can be placed at the start end, finish end, or both Mitered corner can be placed at the start end, finish end, or both A negative value will typically remove material mitering inward (i.e. inside corner), a positive value will typically add material mitering outward (i.e. outside corner)

14 Associative Process for Sheet Metal.psm file.par file.dft file

15 Associative Process for Sheet Metal Associativity exists between… Associativity exists between… - Sheet Metal Part file - Flat Pattern - Drawing Can now create an associative flat pattern of a sheet metal part by using Insert / Part Copy in Part or Sheet Metal environment Can now create an associative flat pattern of a sheet metal part by using Insert / Part Copy in Part or Sheet Metal environment Part Copy file is used for drawing view generation of associative flat pattern Part Copy file is used for drawing view generation of associative flat pattern

16 Associative Process for Sheet Metal If original sheet metal part is changed, Feature Pathfinder in the Part Copy file will indicate the need for an update. When Part Copy file has been updated, drawing view will require updating to complete the change cycle. If original sheet metal part is changed, Feature Pathfinder in the Part Copy file will indicate the need for an update. When Part Copy file has been updated, drawing view will require updating to complete the change cycle. Drawing can include drawing views of both the associative flat pattern, and a formed part if desired

17 Adding Bend Lines to a Flat Pattern turn on display of tangent lines on the flat pattern view In Draft environment turn on display of tangent lines on the flat pattern view

18 Adding Bend Lines to a Flat Pattern Use new center line capability within Draft to draw an associative bend (center) line Use new center line capability within Draft to draw an associative bend (center) line - use option between two lines Click Line 1 Click Line 2 Resulting Bend (Center) Line

19 Adding Bend Lines to a Flat Pattern Turn off display of tangent lines Turn off display of tangent lines
