Morphing sheet metal surfaces

I'm modeling a sheet metal part as a solid because I'm not very proficient with the sheet metal package. Is there a feature I can use to make these surfaces flow into each other?

Accepted answer

You could try the 'lofted boss/base' feature.

Ultimately you'll want to get good with the sheet metal package if you have a lot of parts like this to do.

It's fairly easy to get the hang of. With a good 'form tool' you'd be able to drag and drop that geometry you showed, with the geometry blended nicely into the main wall from the start.

Thanks! Yeah I gave that a try and it does the trick for the purpose of this model. I feel like that would have had to be done as some sort of detent feature
