Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the corner seam to improve parts, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…As powerful as the Inventor sheet metal design tools are, there are times where…the edges or flanges are not connected or defined in the manner that we need.…In this lesson we will use the corner seam tool to make modification to…otherwise completed designs.…To improve its manufacturability and…to make sure we're getting the product that we want.…We start out with a regular box with the standard corner seams as…applied by the sheet metal default that looks good, but…there are times when we need to do things that are just different.…
I start the corner seam tool.…What I need to do is select the edges that will be affected.…It shows me in this case,…just what the default is because that's what we're starting from.…From here I can start making modifications.…For example I can change whether or…not the edges still just meet in the corner of the joint or if they overlap.…And if they do overlap,…I can do things like changing the size of the gap to make sure it's tight.…Now, when you have corners meeting we…also have to resolve how that corner will be manufactured.…
