I've got a complex part that I need to convert to sheet metal, so that I can get a flat pattern out of it. Once complete, the part will be scaled to 1/700 and used for a scale model kit. I need the flat pattern so that the part can be created using photoetched metal.
Part was created in SW2013, I've also included a Step file.
Go the 'Surfaces' in the command manager toolbar area.
Pick 'Delete face'.
Delete all but one of the faces in each element (I know you have a solid but it's still made from surfaces).
Go the 'Sheet metal' in the command manager toolbar area.
Pick 'Convert to Sheet Metal'.
