How can I work on Sheet metal in SOLIDWORKS?
Flexible Sheet Metal tools

Produce a vast range of sheet metal part designs thanks to SOLIDWORKS’ wide range of flexible Sheet Metal tools which are capable of meeting specific needs whilst reducing cost and time.

SOLIDWORKS 3D Design gives you the flexibility to produce sheet metal part designs quickly and cost effectively, the sheet metal feature speeds up the design process whilst reducing time and development cost and increasing productivity.

Using SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal tools you can:
  • Design SOLIDWORKS 3D solid sheet metal parts and assemblies
  • Create sheet metal models directly from SOLIDWORKS 3D models or imported CAD models and automatically input your own bend radius, thickness, and K-factor
  • Design parts within the context of a group of parts in an assembly
Key Features
Sheet metal features are an essential component within many industries to house or enclose various designs, SOLIDWORKS’ flexible design approach allow the user to:
  • Convert SOLIDWORKS or imported CAD models, create original parts, or design around a group of parts
  • Generate Base, Edge, Miter, and Swept Flanges
  • Generate bends, including Lofted Bends, Sketched Bends, and more
  • Use Bend Tables for bend allowance/bend deduction
  • Use Forming Tools to create features like ribs, louvers, lances, embosses, and extruded flanges
  • Add weld details to sheet metal parts on models or drawings
  • Automatically flatten parts to generate flat patterns for manufacturing with bend compensation
  • Automatically estimate sheet metal part manufacturing cost as you design
