Getting the right flat pattern is essential to manufacturing a quality part. "SolidWorks for the Sheet Metal Guy - Course 3: Unfolding” shows you how to set up and use the bend tables in SolidWorks as well as the material types and gauge tables (sheet metal thickness). Instruction on creating a k-factor table (this is not documented by SolidWorks) is also included. Learn how to override the default bend value and bend radius. Step by step instruction is given, showing how to import a flat pattern from another CAD system and use the Fold feature to create a 3D model.
