fold features

Status: New Idea
by Mentor on ‎11-16-2012 08:04 AM

Hey all!


with sheet metal i would like to do the following:


- on flat patern click on folds so that they fold up as clicked, in the order they are clicked, with the ability to go back and unfold then re- fold etc..

 this will be good to make sure when folding the folds don't interfear with each other in the order chosen to do the job, this can then be used to set the fold order for the workshop.

with a potential slider adjustment to slow down the fold for closer inspection.


- in relation to the above, the ability to bring in pressbrake tooling models so that a viualisation of the process can be made to make sure there are no snags in the folding process.


I hope this makes sense and getss added to inventor soon!


regards Adrian
