Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding flanges to your part, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…Flanges are a very common element in sheet metal design.…And there are a lot of options for applying them.…Let's take a look at a few of these.…The simplest, of course, is just to add a flange to an edge.…To do this, we just start the flange tool and pick an edge.…But it's important to think about how you going to develop this part or…how you want to measure these flanges.…Do we want to pick the edge that's on the top face?…And begin the distance of our flange from there.…Or do we want the development of the flange hight or…the distance to be from the bottom of the part.…
So for example if we select this edge it will start developing the flange.…Now in Inventor the flange tool assumes that you want to…develop the flange away from the adjacent face.…In this case though, like I said we want to develop this from…where the part will sit on a table for example, up through the part.…So we can simply change the direction of our height, and…change the value of the height and we'll update the preview automatically.…
