Sheetmetal container


New member
Hello, I would like to know how to make a container with angled walls in sheetmetal design, so that i can unfold it later. I tried everything, but I can't trim angled walls from each other.

I'd try modeling it in Part Design first, and then convert the solid to Sheetmetal using the Recognize icon. This will allow you to unfold the shape and add other sheetmetal features.

But there are probably other ways to do it that are better.
