I'm using Inventor 2013. For some reason the material in a sheet metal part is not linked to the Sheet Metal Rule.
In the attachment you see on the left side that the material TRPL5-7 (that's a material I created) is linked to the Sheet Metal Rule TRAANPLAAT_5_7. But if I select TRAANPLAAT_5_7 as Sheet Metal Rule in Sheet Metal Defaults (see right picture in attachment) the Material doesn't change to TRPL5-7.
What's wrong here?
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the sheetmetal defaults tab, change the material to "by sheetmetal rule". That will tell Inventor to use the material specified in the rule, as opposed to the overriding material you have selected.
