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.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create Flat Pattern From Scaled Derived Sheet Metal Part?

May 2, 2013

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 :: Sheet Metal Imprint

Aug 21, 2013

Working with sheet metal and laying out a pattern for the cnc and was wondering if there is a way to imprint an extrusion onto the surface instead of cutting it. Mainly this will be used for a marking tool so the line type or layer would need to be different.

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 :: How To Model ACM Sheet Metal

Oct 20, 2011

Very thin gauge aluminum sheets with a composite sandwiched between them.

The challenge is, the panels are relatively thick, 3mm or 4mm, but a router is used on the fold lines before bending to cut through all but the outer aluminum.  This makes for a very tight bend radius.

So, thick 3 layer material, tight bend with mitered corners.  Can Inventor's sheet metal tools handle this?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Normal Cut In Sheet Metal

Sep 6, 2012

how incredible it is that Inventor still does not have a functional normal cut option for sheet metal like Solidworks and Solidedge have long had and I agree.  I realize that there are the standard workflows like using derive and thicken to get around this problem.  However, for those interested, there is a way to make a normal cut (for laser/cnc) directly in the sheet metal part in many cases.  It involves using a sketch to split a face and then using the resulting profile for a thicker/cut feature.  I'm always interested in any other methods out there for obtaining normal cuts in complex sheet metal (for a clean dxf export).  By the way, Autodesk, do you actually not have any plans of ever adding functionality in this area?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Metal Extents Add-in?

Jul 3, 2012

I am using IV ultimate 2013

just found about this add-in:[URL]

But its not working for me:

I ran the installer, created a sheet metal part and hit rebuild all, it did not create any proeprties, also tried to manually create the properteis then hit rebuild, no go.

I also did a search on my hardrive for the ApplicationPlugins, and placed the sheet metal folder in all of them(there were 3) tried again noto.

The add-in also does not appear in the add-in manager.

Or is there different what to get the flat pattern dimensions in 2013

AutoCAD Inventor :: Cannot Convert To Sheet Metal

Dec 7, 2012

I have just modelled a part with some faces and tried to convert to sheet metal to have inventor make the bends between the faces. However when trying to convert to sheet metal i get the following error message (Autodesk Inventor Professional Tip) - "This model cannot be converted to Sheet Metal because it contains features that have created multiple bodies. In order to convert to Sheet Metal these features must first be removed."

As the picture show the part only has 1 solid. Even when deleting all features except the "base" face I get the same error message or Tip as Inventor calls it.
