Those are exactly the dimensions I need but just with the other numbers. 29.126" x 35.75"

Re: Sheet Metal Dimensioning

Okay I see where the confusion is now! The 41.41 needs to be replaced with 35.75 and the 34.78 need to be replaced with 29.126. I need those outter dimensions, as viewed from above, 29.126 x 35.75. Instead of back calculating what the length on the flanges are, I want the ipt file to be easily editable based on those VERY VERY OUTER dimensions. 

 

Essentially, make the 41.41 and 35.75 editable so I can edit them to any dimension I choose. That make sense?

I didn't take a look at your drawing problem, but it looked like maybe you are doing too much work in modeling (see attached).

 

Then it occured to me that maybe you want to simply enter the desired Length, Width and Height. (see attached)

 

Oops, I forget the corners on the Rev1 example, but you get the idea.

 

I think I had the flanged thickened to the wrong side as well. (see Rev2)

Every time I read this - it seems like a different problem description?

 

Where did this come from. "I have a 5x7 sheet metal".  Units?  Feet? Inches? mm?

Ding ding! JD got it. The Tray Rev1 is exactly what I need. I can take it from there. I am trying to figure out your methodology. Looks fairly simple. Thanks again to the both of you.

JD, 

 

I was trying to make it simple to explain without posting any drawings. I am new to the site and just didn't know what kinds of files we could upload.

Check the others - I don't think Rev 1 is what you were after (not corner chamfers and the Countoured Flange should thicken to the inside if I follow your problem description.
