Flat pattern from V4 to V5


New member

Situation: I have a curved, CATIA V4, sheet metal type part (.063” thk). I’m using V5 sheet metal design.

I’m having no problems bringing the V4 into V5. copy….past…no prob.

I would like to know how to do 2 things:

1. Create a flat pattern for our router machines. (have CATIA recognize this model as a wall and unfold it)

2. Wrap this part over the die that I’ve already created.

I realize these are probably not easy things to explain, but could I have some guidance on were to look to get these things done?

Thanks much to those of you who reply!!
