SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Normal Cut Clip Tutorial

Normal Cut ClipNormal Cut Clip: The Normal Cut option is used to extrude a cut through a sheet metal bend to create geometry that will be correctly elongated when the part is flattened. It is critical to know that leaving Normal Cut disabled would create a part that, though it looks OK in SOLIDWORKS, will actually interfere with mating components when the real part is fabricated from the flat pattern.
