POCPOC Member Posts: 4 PRO
Hi
The countersink routine does not produce a countersunk feature on my sheetmetal part? it inserts a circular hole If I duplicate the process on a standard extruded shape everything works as expected.
Thanks

    active sheet-metal parts can only have cuts perpendicular to the top face. (anything that can be done on a standard laser table)
    you will need to add a "Finish Sheet-Metal" feature in order to cut features like countersinks.
    (anything that will happen after the part has been cut from the laser table)
