When designing a sheet metal part, you have to focus on several factors. Everything from material thickness to bend radii to flanges can impact design. But the most important question you should be asking yourself is: Can it be manufactured? In this webinar, we will go over design techniques to ensure your sheet metal design can unfold without conflict and is manufacturable.
The presentation will cover:
- Designing for sheet metal fabrication
- How to apply sheet metal to a part in Solidworks
- Challenges of applying sheet metal to a part
- The benefits of designing in sheet metal software
