Flat Pattern


New member
Can solidworks convert a part without a constant radius into a
sheet metal flat pattern?

I am getting a flat pattern that contains the areas with a constant radius.
My other bends are omitted.

SolidWorks is not able to handle this kind of geomery with the present version. You will need another add-in product (BlankWorks) to flatten this. Visit the site and get yourself a 10 days trial to test.
