Hi there,

 I create a bin, but i dont know how to split (separate) 4 sides of bin for plasma cutting machine and then bend and  weld it

What steps i can make to do this ? Please explain me.

 

Thanks,

Eugene

First thing I noticed - Sketch1 was not contrianed and it looked like too much work.  (see attached)

 

I left part of it for you to finish based on what I already done.

Try this Find the red End of Part marker in the browser.
(End of Folded on sheet metal parts EOF)
Drag the red EOP to the top of the browser hiding all features.

Save the file with the EOP in a rolled up state.

Right click on the file name and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.

Attach the resulting *.zip file here.

 

You might also try a different browser (IE, Chrome...)

Try this blog for 1 method of using Derive. If you do it this way then there is no reason to have the 2 Shell features.

How many parts to do you want this separated into? 4? 7?

 

I noticed that your sketches are not  constrained - so the first thing I will have to do is fix your model.
