Fundamental Concepts Of Sheet Metal Design In Solidworks
Fundamental Concepts Of Sheet Metal Design In Solidworks
There are many different methods which sheet metal designers and shops employ to determine the flat length of sheet stock which will give desired dimensions on the finished bent part. Some of these methods are simply "rules of thumb" which individuals use based on experience. Often these rules of thumb relate to the material type and thickness, bend radius and angle, machine type, process speeds, and more.

Scale Factor for Surface Area and Volume
Scale Factor for Surface Area and Volume
This lesson is an exploration in the relationship between scale factor and surface area and volume in solids. In the first part students create three different areas to investigate scale factor. These sketches will then be used in the second part to generate solids. Students make use of the Section properties and Mass properties to quickly find the surface areas and volumes of the similar solids. Once students discover how scale factor affects surface area and volume, they should be able to calculate new values based upon the scale factor. Contributed by Lindy Wine, Atlanta, Georgia.
