Does anyone know how to make a cylinder with cutouts and radii in solidworks?
The cylinder has radius corners and a pattern cut out of one of the edges.
I've tried the unfold feature but can't seem to fillet the corners and make changes to the edges. I've attached the flat pattern version dxf only. Probably a simple question for someone.
I tried the fillet command on your file and it works OK, see attached.
Thanks for your help with this fillet thing. Your example is what I had managed to achieve using the unfold feature but I still couldn't get the fillet to be applied. I managed to get a result which probably could have been done in a better way.
I've attached your file with a modification. I did this with the extrude cut after doing a sketch. Probably not the right way.
PS I like the wrap feature you showed me.
Hmmm. I tried again but still no luck. I made an arc first, then unfold, then fillet edge (constant) but always says unable to make fillet. Not sure now. Thanks for your help though. Checked your snapshot and selected thse edges. Maybe I'm selecting the wrong edges? As far as I can see, all looks okay but obviously missing something.
Hi, after i take a look on your dxf file, i just guest that you are trying to add fillet to a sheet metal, but in form of cylinder. please take a look at my file, maybe it can help you, i add the fillet after i use unfold features first, then i use extrude cut. Not using wrapping features. Also need to consider before extrude the cylinder is a miter gap on the sketch, make sure there is gap around 0.3mm, then extrude sheet metal can be use. Don't hesitate to download the file. Anyway, i'm using 2012 version, so i can't open newer version, or you can uload iges so i can check for you. Thanks,
