Creating Multibody Sheet Metal Parts

You can create a multibody sheet metal part from multiple sheet metal bodies or a combination of sheet metal bodies and and other bodies such as weldments.

To create a multibody sheet metal part:

  • Create new bodies in an existing sheet metal part using Base Flange, Convert to Sheet Metal, Insert Bends, and Lofted-Bend commands.
  • Split a single sheet metal part into multiple bodies.
  • Insert one or more sheet metal, weldment, or other bodies into an existing sheet metal part.
  • Duplicate a sheet metal body in a part by creating a linear or circular pattern, mirroring the body, or using the Move/Copy Body command.
