SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Moderate Sheetmetal Part 3 Tutorial

Moderate Sheetmetal Part 3: The sheetmetal features determine the thickness and bend radius. We will be using a 16 Gauge Aluminum for this model. A Mid Plane extrusion to center is used with respect to the Right Plane. A Base Flange/Tab feature can be used not only as the first feature, but also to add more material at the same thickness like the rest of the part. Download the part below to learn the techniques needed to create this part.

This is part three in a six part series. Take a look back at the Moderate Sheetmetal Part 1 and the Moderate Sheetmetal Part 2.
