I have unfolded a 3D model into a flat plate, however the bend lines/extents do not appear in ISO.dwg
I doubled clicked into the view to access 'Display Options'. However, I canot tick the box to display bend extents as this option is shaded out (refer to attached screendump).
Can you all please assist. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I used the 'unfold' command under the Sheet metal tab. Then I saved the unfold as a separate file (also attached).
Do not create a separate part.
Do not use the Unfold command for this.
In the original part file use the Flat Pattern command.
You now have a folded state and a Flat Pattern state in the same ipt file.
In the drawing choose option for Flat Pattern and/or Folded states when placing the views.
The Unfold/Refold commands are used to create features in flat state that cannot easily be created in folded state, they are not intended for creating Flat Patterns for drawings.
