AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Part Will Not Create Flange Due To Multi Body Error

Feb 1, 2012

I have a part that is derived from a surface skeleton ipt.  The derived surface is thickened and then some holes are added.  Then, when I try to add a flange, it gives me the error "Sheet metal features are not supported in multi solid body parts".  My part is a sheet metal part and single body.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Make A Custom Flange To Sheet Metal Part?

Dec 6, 2011

I am trying to make a custom flange to my sheet metal part.  The flange tool only gives parallel flanges, but I would like my flange to be longer on one end than the other.  Basically cut at the red lines.

I am using Inventor 2009 Suite.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Cut And Paste Solids To Create Multi Body Part

Jan 31, 2011

After migrating my project from MDT2009 to Inventor 2010, every solid body in MDT became a part file in INV.  If I were modeling from scratch, some of the .IPTs should be multibody parts.  Is there any way to cut & paste a solid from one part to another to create a multibody part?  I’m not talking about deriving a new part from the source parts.  The end result should be a multibody part with all sketches intact and all solids fully editable, as if I had modeled them as a multibody part right from the beginning.

I’ve attached a simple example of two separate parts that should be combined into one multibody part, as shown in the .JPG file.  Can it be done without deriving the parts?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Bin - Add Flange

Aug 8, 2013

I am working on a bin type unit, and am having trouble creating a flange, I am creating the bin in the final product stage, then I will separate into manufacturer components. 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,

AutoCAD Inventor :: Offsetting Flange Using Sheet Metal

May 10, 2012

I'm trying to make this part on Sheet Metal, and I have to offset this flange at 28 degree that meet 0.37". The thickness is 0.12". Currently, the only method that I know how to meet that 0.37" is by playing around (guess and check) with the number in picture 3. Any other methods to create this offset part.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal - Flange Is Longer Than Edge

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Punch Tool With A Flange?

Feb 1, 2012

I am trying to make a punch tool in inventor for sheet metal. I noticed that for the features I could not select faces or flanges I did. I know you can extrude the same shape to get the same result but I wanted to use a face/flange so that I can retain the flat development. What is the best way around this.

To get a sense of what I am trying to make:

-square cut out

-on the bottom edge of the square I made a face that is angled at 45 degrees

It would be closest to a louver tool.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Flange Only On Partial Edge

Dec 14, 2012

I have a sheet metal part where I selected an incorrect edge when creating flanges, is there an easy way to deselect the edge? I can add edges and I can select the glyph for a specific edge to edit it, but short of deleating the feature and starting over I have not found a good way of deselecting an edge.

The geometry for each end is in the attached file was draw in Auto-Cad and imported into inventor. Try to connect with lofted flange but only can select one piece of geometry at a time.

Tried to make them polyline's. {did not work} Do I need to create geometry in between them?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating Flange From Bottom Cut Section Of Sheet Metal

Dec 20, 2013

I am having some trouble creating a flange from the bottom cut section of the sheet metal in the attached file. The flange should be flushed with the bottom surface but should be vertical. Everytime I try to do it, it gives me an error message "Not a valid sheet metal edge: adjacent face thickness may be different from sheet metal settings". The whole body is made out of 0.25" plate and the width of the cut section is also 0.25" when I inspect it.

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 :: Multi Body Part Transparency Malfunction

Feb 16, 2012

I am creating a multibody part. I have revolded a surface from a sketch through other bodies and used those bodies to trim the surface. I then thicken the surface to create a solid. 

The solid is transparent and no amount of property adjusting or anything else will make it opaque like the rest of the solids.

in the picture the open scalloped portion contains two bodies.

AutoCAD Inventor :: IFeatures In Multi Body Part File

Jun 2, 2012

I have 2 solid bodies in a part file driven by seperate ifeatures.

Why is it when i search down to the surface bodies then into say the first body, then component definition, then features, then i features it shows both ifeatures?

So it goes:

componentdefintion.surfacebodies.item(1).componentdefinition.features.ifeatures

Is there an area somewhere that only shows the 1 ifeature related to a solid?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Multi Body - Find Both Faces Which Divide One Part Into Two

Sep 12, 2013

I have a multi-body part and want to find the both faces which divide the bodys. The first face I pick with the "SelectSet" command.The second one the program should find on its own.

If I pick a boundary face, it should give an error.

One attempt is to create a point on the first face and use the "LocateUsingPoint". But is there a more elegant way for this task?

(Unfortunately there are little examples of the topic multi-body parts.)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Multi Body Cut Derive - Manual Editing In Part

Aug 17, 2012

I have a multi body part with an extruded cut through all solids.  Each solid is derived out to its own part.  I edited the extrude feature in the multi body part and removed one solid from the selection set.  The cut was correctly deleted from the solid, but when I open the part its still there.  The only way to make it update correctly is to manually edit the derive  feature in the part.  Caught it just before it went off for cutting.  2012 SP2, all hotfixes, win7 64 bit.

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.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Unable To Derive A Part Containing Only A Block Into A Sheet Metal Part

Nov 15, 2011

I set up our company log which gets embossed on most parts as a sketch block in an .ipt.  The .ipt contains nothing but the sketch block.  To use it, the designer only needs to derive the Logo.ipt file into their part and then use the scale setting to set the derived block to the desired size for that part.  The result is a scalable set of line geometry that can easily be used for extrusion or emboss that is standard for all users.  It works beautifully, that is until you try to use it in a sheet metal part in 2012.

For some reason, when this same part, which works perfectly in normal parts, is derived into a sheet metal part an error pops up stating that, "Selected part does not have any geometry that can be derived."  Say what?

I was able to find a workaround by directly copying the block into the sheet metal part, but you no longer have the ability to go back and scale it if needed.  Even more strange, when the block was copied over, it could not be deleted from the new part.

Is this just a bug with 2012?  Why does it work in a normal part but not sheet metal?
