ST3 flattened sheetmetal part problem


New member

I open a STEP file in sheetmetal environment, transform it and then i want to change the neutral factor to get the flat dimension right. When i apply the changes nothing actually changes, so basically i cannot get a correct flat pattern. Is there any possibility to make it???

P.S. In v20 it was done automatically. In ST also. In ST2 i had to "recompute" the convert feature...

Found it!

Found the solution. After transforming to sheetmetal i have to select all radiuses and in bend options uncheck the Neutral Factor "override global value"! Simple:p
