Hem Improvements

Improved sheet metal hem functionality lets you design more complex sheet metal parts. When you add a hem to a sheet metal part edge, you can now edit the hem profile to control the length. You can build the hem according to design requirements, even when it is not applied to the whole edge. You can also add hems to selected nonlinear edges.

You can:

  1. Add hems to edges on different levels.
  2. Change the size of the hem feature.
