how can i make bending drawings of Sheetmetal parts in single sheet in solidworks ?
I am working in kithcne equipments manufacturing Industry. I am designing the table and cabin and other kitchen related equipments. The think is i can make drawing for all the sheetmetal components in an assembly separately. But What i need is I want to insert all the bending drawings sheetmetal parts present in an assembly to a single sheet. Is there a way to do that in solidworks?
I don't think there is an automatic way to do this, but you can do what you need in SolidWorks.
- Create a new empty drawing
- Choose Insert - Drawing View - Model
- Browse for one of the sheet metal parts you want to add
- Before clicking to drop the view into the drawing, check the box that will make the drawing of the flat pattern (see attached image).
You make an assembly drawing and you add model views for each part folded.
