Converting Parts to Sheet Metal in Autodesk Inventor

Keith Doran

Autodesk® Inventor® has tools for creating sheet metal-specific features that follow a manufacturing standard, ensuring your ability to flatten your 3D model, allowing manufacturing to cut the flat patterns accurately. Here we explain the process of converting parts using Inventor.

Topics covered:

  • Using Inventor to open Standard IPT’s and imported Parts
  • Convert to sheet metal and flatten
  • Modifying the flat pattern environment
