Learn about creating jog features.
- [Instructor] A Jog Feature is an offset…in a sheet metal part.…The most common use of this feature is to…make an overlap from one part to the other,…so you can maybe spot-weld,…or screw the two faces together,…and you don't want them on different planes.…So to do that it's pretty straightforward and simple.…The first thing I need to do is create a sketch.…So I'm gonna go ahead and choose this surface right here,…start a sketch on that surface,…and then choose the Line command.…Let me go ahead and hit the Space bar,…so I'm looking straight down at that face.…Let's go ahead and just drag a Line over this part,…it turns black, because it's fully defined,…because it's snapped over that origin,…but you can pretty much put that anywhere you'd like.…
Now, come up here to Sheet Metal.…Come over here to Jog.…And then choose the Fixed Face.…Now the fixed face I'm looking for…is this one right over here.…And if I click on that, notice it gives me…a preview of the Jog feature.…Now over here, I can change the amount of jog,…
First, review the sheet metal tools in SOLIDWORKS and the properties that make sheet metal unique: bend radius, K-factor, bend deduction, gauge thickness, and more. Then learn how to create basic parts, with base features, flanges, and bends that add strength and connections. Find out how to flatten parts and add holes, cuts, and corners that are manufacturing ready, and use the Convert to Sheet Metal command to convert imported geometry into native sheet metal parts. Gabriel also shows you how to create assemblies from multiple parts, use the Pattern and Mirrors tools to effortlessly duplicate existing work, and then document your designs with detailed sheet metal drawings. Watch the bonus videos to learn about the different machinery and processes that occur during manufacturing.
