AutoCAD Inventor :: Create A Shape Using Sheet Metal Loft From One Sketch To The Second

Jun 20, 2013

Im trying to create a shape like the attached image using sheet metal loft from one sketch to the second sketch. No problem doing that but i want to extend the neck on the small end 1 inch like the attached image.

Currently the product is produced using 4 panels brazed together. I want to create the product with 2 bent panels 90  degrees that are split apart from the loft.

Not sure if this even possible in the real world sheet metal house to develop the flat pattern.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Adding Sketch To Sheet Metal Part

Oct 12, 2011

I am having trouble adding a sketch which is on a dwg file to my sheet metal part. First I created a flat plate sheet metal part.

I also have a sketch on a dwg file that I am trying to transfer to the surface of the sheet metal plate. I initiated a sketch on

the sheet metal part thinking I couls open the sketch on the dwg part and do a copy and paste. That did not work.

Second I tried to insert the dwg file but when I search for the dwg file under the insert function, there are no dwg files shown.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Flat Pattern Sketch Parameters?

Jun 24, 2013

Switched to the flat pattern of my sheetmetal part and created a sketch.

My intention is/was to control the values of the sketch parameter values using ilogic.

I cannot access these parameters through the ilogic parameter interface or the ilogic rule editor.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal ILogic Rule Not Executing On Non-rectangular Base Sketch?

Aug 5, 2013

I have a template that I have created, in it I have a rule that changes the stock number and description based on which sheet metal rule is selected.   The weird thing is it works correctly if the first sketch is a rectangle.  If you sketch a circular shape and make that the face it will not work.  It blanks out the values for the stock number and description.  

I'm running Inventor 2014 update 2.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Make Shape With Sheet Metal Tools

Apr 18, 2012

I`ve not used the sheet metal parts that much but have a part which would suit Sheet metal.

How do i make this shape with sheet metal tools .Also how to press the groove starting in the metal at the begining of the bend and continuing through to the end of the bend at the opposite side.Would not even know how to start this part in sheet metal with Inv.2012.

Do i get the metal sheet and use bend to make the sides?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create A Sheet Metal Jog?

Oct 5, 2007

How can I create a sheet metal jog? Like the attached. I used a contor flange to creat this one, but I have to add a jog to an existing part and don't want to have to totally redraw it just to get the jog. I'm hoping you can add it like you can a flange.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal - Create Flanges On A Radius

Feb 18, 2013

The question is if I have designed a part in sheet metal with multiple flanges and one of my edges follow a specific radius. Is is possible to use contour roll or any other means to create a flange on that edge that will allow me to flatten that out. I cant see it being physically possible putting a bend in there as the material would need to stretch and the bend tool would need to follow that radius.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Cannot Create Contour Roll On Sheet Metal

Jul 30, 2013

I am getting an error message (see attached) when trying to create a contour roll using sheet metal, I have tried editing the sketch to open loop however I cannot get the contour roll to preview on the part.

The part is a short length of square hollow section from which I am trying to apply the roll to, there seems to be a problem in projecting the geometry on the end of the part

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create Round Sheet Metal Strap Jog Between Two Different Straps?

Dec 9, 2011

In Inventor 2010 we have a sheet metal, with a lot of different straps. But we cannot create round jogs between them. It's only possible, if all straps are created at the same time with the same size etc.

Please see the attached file. The upper version, is the one, it looks in the moment and we want an apperance like the lower one.

Is it possible? Because we cannot add all the round holes later on in development of the sheet metal.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Create Sheet Metal Parts With Square Shapes And Bends Them

Nov 28, 2011

Let me start by saying that we rarely use sheet metal parts so I'm not real familiar with that interface.  That said, I can create sheet metal parts with square shapes and bends just fine.  However, I'm currently stumped as to the best way to model what should be a pretty simple plate.

We have a large, thin (1/8") square plate to which we want to add 2 opposing diagonal very slight breaks to add stiffness to the plate.  More specifically, we want these diagonal bends to cover the center part of the plate leaving about a 2" flat flange all the way around the plate.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Unable To Create A Flat Pattern From Derived Sheet Metal Part

Nov 9, 2010

The company I work for has a large number of Left Hand and Right Hand sheet metal parts. To reduce the amount of time needed to create both Left Hand and Right Hand sheet metal parts, I use the Derived Part icon.  I create a Left Hand part, use the derive icon with mirroring on and create the Right Hand part.  While the Right Hand sheet metal part gets created, the Right Hand part will not allow me to create a Flat Pattern.

what steps must I follow to create a derived sheet metal part that I can make a Flat Pattern with?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Loft Between 3D And Normal Sketch?

Nov 6, 2011

I have a cylinder on top of a curved surface; I want to make the cylinder land adaptively to the surface, so I projected the circular face of the cylinder in the surface, which ended up being a 3D sketch. I tried to loft a solid between both curves, but it always gives me errors. Some examples are:The attempted operation did not produce a meaningful result. Try with different inputs.Multiple disjoint loops found in a profile section.

I have had success when trying to do the same thing with curved surfaces in two dimensions only (e.g. extruding a 2D curve), but I think the error is produced since the curved face I am trying to use belongs to an elipsiod.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Put Loft Sketch On Drawing?

But I can’t find a way to put the sketches from the part on my paper. It works with copy-paste ;^) but this is not the way I want it (it’ll not change when I change the profiles in the part).

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal From Flat Sheet To Rolled Part?

A collegue asked me about this as he has been given a part to model and the details are for the flat sheet not the finished model. Is this possible in 'sheet metal'? I had a quick play but couldn't work it out. Im used to creating the finished part and 'un-folding' to get the flat pattern.Detail supplied below.
