Can anyone help with the attached part?  I need to create a flat pattern for this part, but it gives the error "Could not build this FlatPattern : Bend geometry passes through the bend axis.

 

Thanks,

Tabitha

I'm finding the bottom is at Corner 13 and 15 ... might want to make that a flange there ..also Cut 1 and 2 gave a problem ... I wish I could spent more time on it ...but I had a few minutes to look at it at lunch and that's where I found the start of the flat pattern issue

When requesting help and posting parts, it is always a good idea to include what version of the software you are using.

 

Not everyone is using the latest version of Inventor and cannot open parts made with a newer release.

Hi! Corner13 and Corner15 seem to make the sheet metal part fail to unfold. There faces merged becaused of the corners. Could you take a look?

Thanks!

Thanks everybody for the help! I was able to change the angle on the two cuts at Corners 13 and 15 and that solved the problem.
