Sheet Metal Punch Issues

I have been trying to make "lightening holes" for a Beech 18 wingtip bulkhead.  It is basically a hole that is flanged on a 30 degree radius at 1/4 inch.

I have have had very little success trying to replicate this with the Sheet Metal Punch Tool (Round Emboss) but the iFeatures will not allow me to enter a value for the angle, diameter, and height.

Material : 6061 Aluminum
Thickness : .020

The zip file is the punch, unzip it and test.

Hi!

 

You can unzip wherever you want, but you can place in here:

 

(Windows 7)

C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2014\Catalog\Punches
