Creating Sheet Metal Flat Pattern Configurations

You can create a configuration in a sheet metal part that shows the flattened part.

To ensure that all features are shown in a flat pattern, you should create the flat pattern configuration after the entire design pattern of the part is complete.

To create a flat pattern configuration:

  1. In a sheet metal part, create a new configuration.
  2. In the FeatureManager design tree, do one of the following:
    • Right-click Flat-Pattern and select Unsuppress .
    • Select Process-Bends and all of the features after it. Click Edit > Suppress > This Configuration to suppress all of the selected features.
