SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Complex Sheet Metal Part 2

Picture-RegularComplex Sheet Metal Part 2: This sheet metal part is symmetric vertically with respect to the right plane. The sheet metal features are used so that the part can be flattened out to create a flat pattern. The base flange/tab feature can be used not only as the first feature but can be used to add more material at the same thickness as the rest of part. The unfold feature unfolds two bends to manually place a large bend relief cutout. A bottom bend relief is added to help facilitate manufacturing.
