- [Instructor] On the sheet metal exam,…more than likely, you're gonna see some form of a hem.…Let me go through the basics for creating a hem…inside a sheet metal.…Go over here to sheet metal, click on the hem,…which is right here, and come down here and choose an edge…The outside edge right here would be just fine.…And then go ahead and choose the length of that.…Now notice I'm using pretty thick material…to illustrate what's gonna happen here.…And notice nothing is showing up.…So if I were to change this here to maybe like 30,…it'll automatically pop up and show you…a preview of what's gonna be happening.…
