Sheet Metal - Punch across bend

Status: Implemented
by Employee dan.szymanski on ‎11-06-2012 12:27 PM

I would like an option to "punch across bend" when placing a punch feature (ifeature) on a sheet metal part.

Status: Implemented
This idea has been implemented within Autodesk Inventor 2015. Special thanks to everyone who cast your Kudo for it. A new “Across Bend” option has been appended to the Punch Tool command for conditions where an iFeature may get placed on or near a bend. Please be sure to check this out in Autodesk Inventor 2015. Thanks!

Punch across Bend can be achieve by unfolding the bend, creating the punch and then refolding.
