Sheet metal 45 degrees flange

hobie_smithhobie_smith Member Posts: 34 ✭✭
If you attach a flange of 20mm length, measured from the radius to the outer edge, at a 45 degree angle (pointed) to a sheet metal model. How are you doing? I would like that this flange has 20mm, if I measure it it is always much shorter. Will link to an example.

    For the curious, the flange distance corresponds to the length from the tip of the flange to the virtual sharp of the outside edges of the flange.

    @Jake_Rosenfeld

    My featureScript takes account of this and measures from the inside intersection.

    I have created an improved version of the feature sheet metal Flange.
    I can't share the code but here you can see a video:

    Improvements:
    • "Use model bend radius" with multiple sheet metal models
    • Set the distance measured from Inside or outsite
    • Remember previos values of Distance and angle
    • Set 2 diferent miter angles and added manipulators to set the orientation in each edge
    • Default miter angle changed to 90º
    Un saludo,
