Re: Frame generator notching/unfolding issues

Check the attached fix.

 

You Sculpted the surface bodies into a second solid body for the Combine-Subtract.
Inventor sheet metal does not support multi-body solids - thus the error.

 

I deleted your Sculpt and deleted the extra surface faces you had. (When Copy Object to get the surface - you only need the outer contact surface).

 

Now I used Sculpt (or Split) to cut away the excess without creating an solid bodies).

Please mark this response as "Accept as Solution" if it answers your question.
