Hi All,


I want to form a plate (collar palte around branch (riser) connection, which when is flatened the projected circle will be eliptical. Before Refold I want to cut plugholes for welding. In flat position it looks like a flange /w holes and the middle cut-out is eleiptical. I want to refold it to be again in rolled shape.


My system has Inventor Professional 2013.


Thank you any solution.

Please see the attached example, and we may consider to get the flatten result first, then fold it.
