Is it possible to create a dimple on a lofted bend part? The lofted bend is created from two 3d splines so the shape is pretty complex. The forming tools need a planar face which is not present on the part. Any other way to do this dimple? Thanks
6. lofted bends
im guessing that when sp4.0 came out. they have added a fixed face requirement. my lofted bend does not have any flat face or edges. this new requirement makes the command un-usable to me.
Hello, I'm a new user of solidwx. I've got a problem with the bending tables, working with the loft feature in sheet metal mode. I've just prepared my excel work sheet, and I tried to work with it. When the cad asks for it, I tell the directory (my docs) where it is. But the developed lenghts are still wrong. For example: for a cylinder with a diameter of 1000 mm, I get a devoloped lenght of 12000 mmm. To be complete, the equation I used is: Lb = alpha ( R + kT ) where: - alpha is the bend angle in radians - T is the sheet thickness (usually bigger than 8 mm) - R is the bend radius - k is a costant value. Are there other equations to describe and get the correct lenghts? Where is my problem? Waiting for a positive reply, thank you very much. Vanessa
