Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying corner treatments, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…Fillets and Chamfers are common features in Traditional Solid Modeling.…When it comes to sheet metal,…we have an opportunity to enhance those tools to make them…more functional with the manufacturing process of sheet metal tools.…In my sheet metal part, I have a lot of sharp corners.…In some cases adding simple Fillet to them will work.…But in other cases, I might want to create clearance using a Chamfer.…Unfortunately, it's very difficult sometimes to select the correct edges on…a sheet metal part that's very thin.…That's why the Corner Round and…Corner Chamfer tools have been added to the sheet metal environment.…Let's take a look at how they work.…First, let's start with the Corner Chamfer tool.…I'll set my Distance and…as I move around to select corners, you'll notice that I cannot select the long edge.…Now, if this were a traditional Chamfer feature in solid modelling,…you would grab any sharp edge you could even around curves.…But because the corner Chamfer tool is aware of the manufacturing process,…
