Metal sheet flange error

Metal sheet flange error

I made this frame with curved corners in metal sheet in aluminum and i want to make small flanges pointing away from the frame on the sides of it. But it wont allow me to do this. It says "cant complete sheet metal operation due to an internal error. check the body and bend perimeters, then try again". But it dosent work, even with other angles and such.

Hi @tobias.gramhald For this to be a sheet metal part, it can't be a continuous body. You need a gap or rip in the body some place in your first extrusion. Once you do that you can then convert the part to a sheet metal part and then add the flange to the edge you are show. 


I noticed you posted this question to a few different forums. Please only post to one forum and make sure you are posting to the correct forum that fits your role.
