I'm making an angled sheet metal part with two flanges on it. At some of the bends there is a small tab that appears that I'd like to get rid of. Is there an easy way to do that? Maybe a setting I'm missing in the Edge Flange command?
Hi all, I'm working on a lofted bend sheet metal part, and having a hard time adding an edge flange on the end of the loft. The issue is that the end of my sheet metal profile is non-planar due to the loft feature. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks! SolidworksSheet Metal
