Not sure if you are still going to provide the example in Sheet Metal you mentioned....just let me know if you do not have time and i will cease asking as i would presume your busy
Solved! Go to Solution.
I will try to get to it today - kind of surprised that someone else didn't jump in here and show a solution as this one is easy.
Did you try the Help with Rolled Contour and Unfold/Refold?
Milke already posted solution same as what I would do.
Actually I suggested Unfold/Refold because I was not aware that Inventor would Project Flat Pattern with a Roll Contour (never tried it, but I was thinking about it with your problem, so hopefully I would have discovered the same solution).
Either way will work. I prefer Mike's solution when it will work rather than Unfold/Refold.
The key to Project Flat Pattern is you must start your sketch on a planar face rather than a workplane.
Then select the extants you want to project.
