Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Forming across a bend, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
Forming tools can be used across bins, and in this video, we will review how to build…a custom tool and use that tool to add gussets to the edge of a Sheet Metal part.…Gussets are used to strengthen a bend and are fairly common in sheet metal parts.…To get started, let's take a look at the few examples of what we're going to be making.…In this case, here you can see we have a sheet metal bracket, we have a gusset,…that's been formed into the edge of that bracket.…This will strengthen this edge, and it's pretty easy to do.…Let's go take a look at the tool, come down here to 6.4.tool and you can see this…is the tool. This can be pushed into the edge of that…sheet metal piece and actually form. That gusset.…
The green face or turquoise face here is the stopping face, which is going to be…pushed to the bottom of the part. And then all the red faces will be removed…from this tool. And what's going to remaining is…everything that's in yellow will be actually pushed in to the edge of that part.…Let's take a look at how to create this. Let's start with a new part.…
