pls see attached..
I have a metal part for which i have added a raised area which needs to be shelled out so as to replicate a dish shape.
1. Can this be shelled out and filleted so as to represent a smooth pressed raised section in the metal
I don`t know of any other way to perform this feature.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You should use a Punch tool if you still want this to give you a Flat Pattern
you could add the fillets and them shell (select all faces extcept the front (or back) faces.
If you were going to shell - there was an easier way to create the part.
1. If you were going to shell - there was an easier way to create the part....could you please post a sample
2. How would i use the punch tool...are these already available....could you post a sample
Simply place a sketch on the face with a "Center-Mark" at the center your desired "punch" location. Then select the Punch-Tool, scroll down to the desired shape.
