Punch features sketch in derived part

345 Views, 8 Replies

Hi
I'm deriving(mirroring) a sheet metal part with 2 different punch features, which both contain a sketched symbol for the CNC-punching machine. All is ok in the base component. Then i derive it into a new part - make the new flat pattern - still ok. Now i choose "Edit flat pattern definition" and checks "2d sketch representation" and then the feature disappears, as intended, but its not showing the sketched symbol. Where did it go?
This funktion works fine in the base component...but not on the derived par. It must be compatible since the feature disappears - or what?

It is really reproducible on R2008. But it does work fine on R2009 and R2010.

Thanks,

Here's an example made in Inventor 2010 - same result, on my machine anyway...

hi,

 

I have same issue in inventor 2013. when i turn on punch representation, It doesnt show punch sketch (louver in my sample part) on derived part. it works fine in base part.

hi,

 

thanks for reply.

 

I open your sample parts. I find out one thing. see attachment.

why the sketch not on the part? it is flowing around. does that trick made it work?

So it is how we make punch tool instead of sheet metal problem.

 

thanks again.

Yes, it will be reproducible when changing the mirror plane, and the position of punch representation looks incorrect. And this issue has been tracked in our system as 1471193.
