You can create sheet metal parts in several ways.
Create a sheet metal part using the sheet metal template. The template uses your settings for material thickness, bend radius, and corner relief. You use sketch commands to create a profile for a base face or an initial contour flange. Then you exit the sketch And create your sheet metal feature, and add any additional sheet metal features required to complete your part.
Create a regular part with a uniform thickness, and then convert it to a sheet metal part. Specifying a part as sheet metal displays the Sheet Metal tab, and adds sheet metal-specific parameters to the parameters list.
Conversely, you can convert sheet metal part to a standard part. Doing so closes the sheet metal tab, and restores the standard part modeling commands and environment. Conversion of a sheet metal part to a standard part automatically deletes the sheet metal flat pattern. Time you delete a flat pattern in Sheet Metal Parts, you also delete all flat pattern views in associated drawings.
Note: When using this technique, ensure that the modeled sheet thickness agrees with the material thickness parameter setting. After converting a part to sheet metal, we recommend that you replace any dimension and parameter values ??that control the sheet metal thickness with the Thickness parameter. For example, in an extruded feature use Thickness as the extrusion value with the Distance extent method. The Thickness parameter updates the part thickness when you change the Sheet Metal Rule, or when you override the Thickness manually in the Sheet Metal Defaults dialog box.
To create a sheet metal part to fit a specific set of conditions, construct a series of surfaces, stitch them together later, and then thicken them.
