Sheet Metal - cut across bend

256 Views, 2 Replies

I have a sheet metal door with a little bracket that gets welded to the inside lip through a cut-out in the face of the door. (see assembly)

 

I can't get the cut-out to line up flush with the inside lip of the door, as that is where the brackets gets welded to. the current aseembly is set-up the way I want, but I can't get a flat pattern on the door, becasue of the cut going across the bend.

 

I have checked off the "cut across bend" in the cut dialogue box, but this leaves a small (~1/32) lip in the cut-out and runs interference in the placement of the bracket. 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

 

Sean

If you want the cut to be flush with the inside then the cut should remove the entire bend in that area. See the attached part.

Makes sense, if I am going to cut across the bend, why not cut across the entire bend.

 

thanks!!
