Forming Tools

Dimensions for Rotation Angles

If you set a rotation angle for a forming tool in the PropertyManager, you can edit the angle in the PropertyManager or when editing the profile sketch. The angle is located with respect to the X axis of the profile sketch.

Insertion Points

You can set an insertion point for forming tools. The insertion point helps you determine the precise location of the forming tool on the target part.

In a part, click Forming Tool Tool_Forming_Tool_Sheet_Metal.gif (Sheet Metal toolbar) or Insert > Sheet Metal > Forming Tool . In the PropertyManager, set options on the Type tab, then select the Insertion Point tab. Use dimensions and relations tools to define the insertion point.
