Sheet Metal Design


Advance Your Sheet Metal Skills!

The Sheet Metal Design course shows you how to take control over your sheet metal parts. You’ll learn the details about K-Factors, Bend Tables, and Bend Allowances and how they affect your models. You’ll also learn how to streamline the process of creating sheet metal models that predict the outcome of prototypes and production parts.

The course progressively builds your skills starting with basic commands like the Base Flange and Edge Flange commands. Right away you’ll notice the training is focused on your final goal, which is to fabricate your sheet metal parts. As you explore command settings the instructor will explain how settings affect your final goal and he’ll point out point out things like the orientation of the user coordinate system. These simple but important observations can affect your workflow.

You’ll practice applying K-Factors, Bend Tables, and Gauge Tables to sheet metal settings that affect how your parts unfold. The course also comes with a K-Factor Calculator that helps you compare your fabricated parts to your models. Once again the training keeps your focus on the final goal which is to create sheet metal models and flat patterns that match fabricated parts.

Once you master sheet metal settings you’ll create sheet metal templates that make your settings default settings. This will significantly increase the speed and accuracy of your work. With your sheet metal templates you’ll construct sheet metal parts without having deal with settings. Your parts will unfold as predicted and they will match your fabricated parts.

This course is packed with tips and tricks that will significantly improve the accuracy and speed of your work. It even comes with a K-Factor calculator that outputs the K-Factor, Bend Deduction, and setbacks.
