Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Edit Flange Profile tool, part of SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal Design.
The Edge-Flange2 is awesome, however, what if we don't want a flange to go the whole…length of the edge or we don't want just a basic edge flange?…How about adding a hole or two? It's all possible using the Edit-Flange…Profile tool. There are a few rules that we need to…follow to make the flange build correctly. To get started, let's go ahead and choose…this edge over here, and click on the Edge-Flange2.…We get the little pop-up displaying the flange as we see it.…If I spin it around, notice over here on the left, right under the edge I chose, I…have this Edit-Flange Profile button. If I click on that, it puts me into a…Sketch Mode and I have the ability to then grab any of these sketch lines and move…them around. Notice the lines on the right and left are black.…
That doesn't mean you can't grab them, and still move 'em around.…So, I can adjust the length of that flange, the height of that flange.…And if I want to even zoom in on it, I can even add onto it.…So in this case here, we'll grab that line command, and I'm going to draw a line.…
