TriMech Tips & Tricks: Sheet Metal

Have you ever received a part made in another CAD system? Making flat patterns from imported parts can be both troublesome and time-consuming. SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal uses a simplified design process to allow a user at any experience level to quickly create sheet metal part designs while saving both time and money.

About This Webinar

TriMech Application Engineer, Brett Combs, walks through the basic features of sheet metal part in SOLIDWORKS. Brett shows you how to create flanges to generate flat patterns that are easily shared out to DXF and DWG formats. He also reviews some of the lesser-known SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal tools that can be utilized to create flat patterns from more advanced designs. Finally, Brett demonstrates how to convert non-native files into usable SOLIDWORKS data that gives you the full benefit of all SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal tools.
