Thread: Solidworks gurus
Thanks I tried that and got close but maybe I missed something out as I just can't do it lol
This way is pretty much the same as Dan's just different.!! .. Lol
First start a new part.
Create a sketch on front plane to use has a reference sketch. With the dimensions like in pic1
Then from sheet metal select Base Flange/Tab and select front plane. Using convert entity select the rectangle from reference sketch.
Click Ok and the select the thickness etc you want.
Next select Sketch bend, select the rear face of the Base flange you created. Then using convert entity select the bed line and click ok.
Now click above the line to create fixed face, Now select outside bend position then enter 68.93deg in angle box.
Click Ok and hey presto it's bent.
Next select extruded cut and select face on Top piece of bend. Then using convert entity select circle and click ok.
Now in direction 1 choose through all and select flip side to cut. Click side 2 then click ok and Hey presto there's your part which can be flattened if needed.
Hope this makes sense.
Ahhh I will give it another go!
Jazz that file I sent you earlier may not work because I've just opened it on my laptop and I'm a couple bits missing lol but I'm making headway with solidworks
New file sent lol
