The Convert to Sheet Metal command lets you specify the thickness, bends, and rips necessary to convert a solid part to a sheet metal part.
To convert a solid part to a sheet metal part:
The rips required are automatically selected and listed under Rip Edges found.
In the graphics area, callouts are attached to the bend and rip edges if you selected Show callouts in the PropertyManager. You can use the callouts to change the bend radii and rip gaps.
Tear reliefs are the minimum size required to insert the bend.
If you select Rectangular or Obround, specify a Relief Ratio.
