I have a pretty simple design and yet Inventor will not build the flat pattern. Here is the error that it is giving me:


12 Valley_R2.ipt: Errors occurred during update
12 Valley_R2.ipt (Flat Pattern): Errors occurred during update
Definition1: Could not build this ASMFlatPattern
No base plane found


Anyone have any ideas?

Yes. The most obvious idea is - post the file here!

....or....

We could play a pretty simple and fun game of 20 questions.

Q1. Did you use sheet metal tools to create the features?
