Making a curved panel that matches the front of a design.

Hi, im having trouble making a curved panel that covers the back-rest of the couch. I attached a picture of it with the specific area circled in red. Does anyone know an efficient way to do it?

Also I forgot to add that the columns between the bottom are top are slanted in the front, so I would also need to mate it to that.

Please attach you model.  If you do not know how to attach your Fusion 360 model follow these easy steps. Open the model in Fusion 360, select the File menu, then Export and save as a F3D or F3Z file to your hard drive. Then use the Attachments section, of a forum post, to attach it.

Hi, here's the Fusion file.

I made it .5" thick, you can adjust it to anything you desire from the timeline.  It is last component in the Browser, Back Panel.  You can add fillets to the corners if you like. Model attached.

Thank you so much! I just wanted to ask, how can I flatten the model so I could export it as a DXF?

Message 7 of 10

I combined the whole surface, three sections, into one component (body) so it became a compound surface body.  This bogey type cannot be flatten in Fusion 360.  You can go back and break the surfaces up and the probably flatten each individually,  I will look at this possibility.

I just measured the outer points of the middle section and copied the values in a seperate sketch. Would that be accurate enough?

Probably not.  I have attach a sheet metal development of the center section of the back.  Right click on the Flat Pattern, in the Browser, and choose Activate to see the flat pattern.  I used 16 GA sheet metal for the pattern, you never mention the actual thickness.  This is just a shape anyway.

Thanks! I really appreciate the help. Forgot to mention that I wanted the panel to be 1/8" thick, but it's fine.
