Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Making a cross break, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
In heating, ventilating and air conditioning work, or duct work, cross…breaks are useful to stiffen sheet metal. The cross break command lets you insert a…graphical representation of a cross break in a sheet metal part.…The cross break is not a geometric entity and it does not alter the geometry of the part.…You add it to provide the information needed to create the cross break, during manufacturing.…To get started, it's pretty easy, let's go ahead and choose the cross-break command,…and choose this top face. You can see it gives us a nice…representation on what's going to happen here, and these lines here will be the…bend lines as this thing gets formed up... You can pull up.…
Or down, depending on which way you'd like to have the cross break form.…And you can adjust the bend radius. You can change the angle.…And you can edit the profile if you'd like.…When you're happy with what you have, go ahead and click on okay.…And you've got a nice part, showing a nice representation of where the cross break…
