SolidWorks Part Reviewer: Imported Sheet Metal

sheet metalSheet Metal: The imported sheetmetal model was mostly valid . After using Insert>Sheet Metal>Bends, the part would *mostly* unfold if received in STEP or Parasolid. There was nothing we could do to make it, or even a section of it, unfold when imported as an IGES from its source. Based on this experience, try to default to a STEP or Parasolid if you can!


Complexity: Moderate
Features used: Tangency, Flatten, Pattern
