Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at the rip feature, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
The Rip feature can be used to split edges or faces of sheet metal parts.…Or in the process of converting to sheet metal.…We first need to create a sketch on a flat face, or choose edges on an existing part.…To get started, let's go ahead and open up 4.4 and you can see here I've got a part…and I want to start a sketch on this top face.…So go ahead and choose a sketch and click on Space bar for Normal To.…Looking straight down on that face and let's go over here and grab the Line command.…And I just want to draw some lines across these corners.…
I'm just going to snap to the inside corner and snap to that outside edge.…There we go. Once I've got all four of those lines…drawn in there, I'm going to go ahead and exit out of the sketch.…And see that's that's exactly where we're going to be cutting our part, and we're…going to cut it here, and then down this edge here.…So let's go ahead and fire up the Rip command and we're going to choose some edges.…The first edge I'm going to choose is this one up here and notice when I do that, I…
