This video shows how to modify the flange profile.
- [Instructor] In this example,…I'm gonna be showing you how to edit the flange profile…of the sheet metal edge flange tool.…So, before we jump into that,…notice I have a sketch here…and it's 100 millimeters by 115 millimeters up here.…If I jump over to the sheet metal tool bar,…I'm gonna go ahead and choose…this base flange tab tool.…And let's go ahead and spin that around…so we can see what's happening here.…Now, as far as the amount or the length of this,…type in 50 for the depth.…And then over here, as far as your thickness,…I'm gonna change this to five millimeters.…
So you can really see what's going on.…And I notice here the material is…on the inside of the shape.…Right, it starts here at the origin,…it comes up here, it's on the inside.…I also have the option of flipping that over…so it's on the outside.…So, if I were to do that, notice, this dimension of 100,…would not include the thickness of material.…So, it'd actually be 105 from the bottom here,…all the way to the top surface.…So, make sure you're aware if you have material…
