Enable Sheet Metal Adaptivity

Status: New Idea
by bverboort on ‎01-16-2013 09:35 AM

Used to be able to do this!


Create a face and add flanges to sides and have the resulting pan be adaptive in an assembly.


Constrain enclosure to electronic components and have enclosure update when/if component position changes.


Used to use this workflow to have package adapt to changes in component layout (10lbs of "stuff" in a 5lb package scenario).
