Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting a flat pattern into a drawing, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…In this exercise we're going to take a look at the basic functions for…creating 2D drawing views of your sheet metal parts.…To begin, all we need is a new drawing file,…created from a template of your choice.…One that meets your standards, and we'll just simply start creating a few views.…Now, one of the things that's unique about sheet metal is that we can create views of…either the folded model, or the flat pattern.…In this case, let's just start with the folded model, I'll say that I want…the current view, that I want the hidden lines suppressed, and I want it shaded.…
When I bring it over here, I see that it's a little large so…I'll just change my view scale because this is just a representative view.…We really don't need to worry about scale.…And I'll place the view on my drawing.…It automatically wants to project other views but…I can just say OK and create the view as it is.…So that looks good.…Let's create another base view and in this case we'll say we want the flat pattern.…We get a preview of it, now we can rotate it to whatever position we want.…
