calendered sheet metal

how can i make a calendered sheet metal like solidworks and then flatten it?


  • Not sure I understand what "calendered" sheet metal is. If the object can be created as a solid model, then converted to a sheet metal object with SMCONVERT, and finally unfolded with SMUNFOLD, it would be "flattened". Is that what you're looking for? The attached file shows a slotted cylinder unfolded. This is considered a "lofted" bend, and the number of segments (subdivisions) in the unfolded blank can be set in the mechanical browser.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
