Flat Patterns

You can exclude faces from flat patterns, which is helpful when faces interfere with bends.

In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click Flat-Pattern and click Edit Feature . In the graphics area, for Faces To Exclude select faces that you do not want in the flat pattern. You must select the front and back of each face that you want to exclude.
