ST2 transform to sheetmetal


New member

When I open a .stp/.igs etc file in sheetmetal, i "transform to sheetmetal" it and then i usually make a flat out of my part. When i change the neutral factor the flat part dimensions do not change.
Does anyone know what is the problem or am I doing something wrong?


Edit: I found a solution (troublesome, but works): I convert, then i make changes if necessary, then change neutral factor and at last i have to recompute the part on convert level. Then the changes apply.
Thanks for watching and not even trying to answer...
