solidworks tutorial -sheetmetal assembly

Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced skills.

And the summary of this tutorial:

This time we are going to model the punching machine via sheetmetal features.So let’s begin with the first part.Create a new part in solidworks. We need to work with sheetmetal features so if you can’t see the tab right click on one of the existing tabs and check sheetmetal too:

craete the first base and edge flange 

8 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly base flange

9 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

10 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

Choose the direction

11 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

Set the flange length in edge-flange properties and click ok

Do the same for the other side and now you have this part:

Now we are going to make a cut.

14 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly sketch

Go to features tab and select the extruded cut and Cut the rectangle through all the part

fillet the sharp edges

20 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly fillet

21 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly fillet

cut the assembly hole

23 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly extruded cut

second part. just like the first start with a base flange

25 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly base flange

26 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly planes

29 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly base flange30 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly base flange

continue with a edge flange

31 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

Do that for the other edge too

33 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

Save your model

35 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

cut the assembly holes and the edge

39 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly cut

 

41 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly cut

add four more flanges

 

43 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

44 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

46 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

Save your model

47 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly edge flange

now third part. once again we begin with an base flange

 

49 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly flange

 

then we add edge flanges

51 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly flange

53 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly flange

then we fille t the sharp edges

cut the assembly holes

this is the model after all

62 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly final part

we need a pin to connect the first three parts and we make it now by a simple revolve

67 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly revolved boss

68 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly revolved boss preview

now the last two parts which are handles. just need some sketches to extrude and cut

75 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly fillet

76 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly fillet

and the second handle

78 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly boss extrude

82 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly cut extrude

84 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly fillet

85 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly fillet

now we have all necessary models and we can begin the assembly. bring the first part and after that bring the pin into the assembly

87 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly first part

90 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly insert component

and assemble the pin in its location

98 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly

insert the next part into the assembly

99 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly insert component

assemble it in the needed location

104 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly move

insert the next part and a mount it where it needs to be

109 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly distant mate

110 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly rotate

now insert the handles and assemble them as well:

122 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly distant mate

123 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly insert component

129 116 solidworks sheetmetal assembly

cahnge the appearance of the model and bring it to life
