Oct 7, 2011

I have scoured the pages on here looking for a way to put a 90deg curve in a piece of bar (2x40x2356mm) . 

The next issue I am having is after I have curved it I need to put equidistant 4mm holes central along its length (20mm in and 40.6mm between them).

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 :: How To Create Sheet Metal Part By Mirroring

Jan 23, 2012

I have a sheet metal part. It is a machine door with four edge flanges. I have mirrored this part. The origin part has flat pattern while the mirrored creates the folded pattern.

It still folded even when origin is in flat pattern.

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 :: 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 :: 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.

I'm attempting to create a mini version of a product, I use the Derived Component button and scale the part down. Then I use  Convert to Sheet Metal, set my sheet metal defaults, but then nothing happens when i try to create flat pattern. Is it even possible to derive a flat pattern from a scaled part?

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 :: Sheet Metal From Flat Sheet To Rolled Part?

Sep 12, 2013

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.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create New Body With IFeature For Reverse Nesting

Dec 18, 2012

I am trying to create multiple bodies within a part file using multiple ifeatures. It seems that it is not possible to force the ifeature to create a new body when it is inserted. If it is inserted into a part that has multiple bodies present.

I call it "Reverse Nesting". We have a sheet of a certain size (18" x 32" in this case). I need to completely cover a much larger (and oddly shapped) panel with these sheets. I want to cnc cut these sheets into the correct shape and be able to assemble them together on the larger panel.

Create an ifeature that creates a sheet of the correct size. In a part file with a sketch (or surface) of the panel we need to cover, we can insert the ifeature and constrain its sketch to the original sketch. My hope was that I would be able to do this multiple times (each as its own body),orient them as req'd to cover the panel, and the use the original panel sketch to do an interference extrude through all the bodies. I could then use Make Componets to create an assembly of all of the parts, and generate flat profiles for each piece for CNC cutting. This doesn't work because I can't geerate multiple bodies with multiple iFeatures in the same file.Create a template part that is teh size of the sheet and constrain them together on the panel I want to cover. Use assembly features to cut way what I do not need. This does not work because there are performance and associativity issues with assembly features and no way to push the cuts back to the parts for CNC profiles.

Similar to #2 except derive the panel we need to cover into our part and use split to remove what we do not want from our sheet. This does not work because it is not easy to move a derive around within a part and link it to the other sheets that are adjacent to it.Create a template that contains parameters that contain the sizes of the sheet. Manually create sketchs and constrain them to each other on the derived (as a surface) panel, extrude each one as a separate body and then  run Make components. This will work, but it is very time consuming.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Quickest Way To Create Part That Starts Off As Basic Extruded AISC Shape?

Dec 10, 2013

I am new Inventor user (2014 version) trying to get up to speed on best practices and the most efficient work flows. I find myself designing individual parts that start off as base AISC shapes (angles, square tubes, rectangular tubes, etc.).  These are parts that start off as base extrusions that then have multiple machining operations performed on them.  In most cases, the parts are stand along parts that aren't involved in any type of frame.

In these cases, I generally sketch the profile from scratch using my AISC book and then extrude.  I'm sure this is silly.  Frame generator already has the profile data built in- so why am I sketching these profiles from scratch?  But using frame generator in an assembly environment to make a single member part seems silly to me also.  Why should there be an assembly file at all?  I just want a single part that starts off as some length of some standard profile.  Using frame generator in an assembly environment seems like overkill.

What is the best practice for starting off a part with some length of a standard ANSI, ISO, or other profile?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Bin - Add Flange

I am having trouble adding this flange around the top 4 edges of the bin. I need the four corners to meet on a miter 45. I will then rip down each seam and have 4 separate panels.

Is this a bad workflow? Is there a better route? I attached the part in Inventor 2013 format,
