Tuesday, September 9, 2008
Convert to Sheet Metal

We can convert the solid or surface body into a sheet metal part using the convert to sheet metal command.The Solid body can also be imported sheet metal body.

After converting solid to sheet metal component we can apply all sheet metal features to it.
It works with forming tools also.

Use the convert to sheet metal command with :

Solid and surface bodies that have
  • No shells or fillet
  • Either a shell or fillet
  • Both a shell and fillets
  • Imported bodies that are already in the form of sheet metal part.
Imported part must have constant thickness.Sheet metal parts created using forming tools may not convert correctly.

An excellent video Demo which depicts how to convert a solid body into sheet metal Watch it here.
