Overriding Parent Sheet Metal Parameters

All bodies in multibody sheet metal parts inherit the bend radius and thickness values from the sheet metal parent folder. You can override the inherited values. Auto relief values are not affected.

The values in the sheet metal parent folder are determined by the first sheet metal body you create in the part.

To control the overriding of parent sheet metal parameters:

  1. In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click the dependent Sheet-Metaln feature below the parent folder and click Edit Feature menu_Edit_Feature.gif.
  2. In the PropertyManager, under Bend Parameters, select or clear Override default parameters.
  3. In the PropertyManager, under Custom Bend Allowance:
    1. Select or clear Override default parameters.
    2. If you clear Override default parameters, under Custom Bend Allowance enter the bend allowance for the dependent sheet metal features.
