Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Cleaning up the edges with a hem, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…Hems are frequently added to sheet metal parts to improve their strength and…the safe handling of these components.…Let's take a look at the several options that are available for…applying these hems to your sheet metal components.…The Hem tool is a placed feature.…So what we need to do is select an Edge and select a type and…put any size values in.…In this case, the Single type is just a simple layover, where it…applies a face and a bend automatically to the face whose edge you selected.…
Let's Apply this, and let's pick another type of hem.…Let's select Double.…We'll pick our Edge.…And maybe modify the length of this feature, so…that we can see that the preview already shows us what this will look like.…Now the Teardrop hem is very similar to the Single except instead of…focusing on the length of the face that's developed and…the radius, it focuses on the radius and an angle.…So, let's select an Edge.…We'll perhaps override the Radius to give us a larger feature.…
But we can also use the same options that were available in…
