Creating a Base Flange

To create a base flange:

  1. Create a single open, single closed, or multiple contained closed sketch.

    Alternatively, you can select the Base Flange/Tab feature before you create a sketch (but after you select a plane). When you select the Base Flange/Tab feature, a sketch opens on the plane.
  2. Click Base Flange/Tab on the Sheet Metal toolbar, or click Insert > Sheet Metal > Base Flange.

    The controls on the Base Flange PropertyManager update according to your sketch. For example, the Direction 1 and Direction 2 boxes do not appear for a sketch with a single closed profile.
  3. Set options in the PropertyManager and click .
