Get warning when creating a flat pattern of part

58 Views, 4 Replies

When creating a flat pattern of a Sheet Metal part that has no bends I
get warnings that no bend zones exist.
It takes too long to generate this warning. Really there should be no
warning. Sheet metal manufacturing processes many times involve sheet metal
parts without bends.
Is there some way to make this stop or turn off the warning.

Appreciate any help

curious why you are making a flat pattern of a flat part? Is it because it has formed
iFeatures or something?

The reason I make a flat pattern of a flat sheet metal part is so I RMB on the flat and do a "Save As" as a DXF so I can import it into my Cam program. Too many steps to make a idw out of it. Much faster and easier to go right from the part. Does this make sense?
