How can I put a hem bend along the edge of a curved surface?
Helping a SolidWorks user.
"I am designing a sheet metal cover that has a constant curve from left to right but around all four edges I need to have a hem bend.
Is this possible in SW 2011?"
I am a press brake setter. to do this with real material we hem the the flat sheet then roll with equal guage sheet to get a constant curve. I am new to solidworks so I don't know if you could find a way of incorporating this into a part or assembly. hope it helps
As J E Paz noted, you can sweep the hem profile which will give you a part of the desired design, however SW will not be able to convert it to a sheet metal part and flatten it. Best I can tell, Dassault feels that anything made of a thin, bent piece of metal MUST have at least one planer surface.
