Punch Tool


New member
:confused: Hi,
I have created a sheet metal part and used PunchTools and duplicated using mirror tool. After creating a flat pattern output of the part, I find that the mirrored instances of the PunchTool are slightly rotated in the flat pattern.
Any help would be appreciated.
Hi Barak,
Instead of Punch Tool command Insert iFeature command. Doing so allows you to create geometry. The flat pattern output will display correctly.
