Description

The SheetMetal AddBase.svg SheetMetal AddBase command creates a SheetMetal base object from a sketch.

From an open contour it creates a prismatic profile:

From a closed outline it creates a base plate (blank):

Usage

Profile

  1. Select an open contour Workbench Sketcher.svg sketch.
  2. Activate the SheetMetal AddBase.svg SheetMetal AddBase command using one of the following:
    • The SheetMetal AddBase.svg Make Base Wall button.
    • The SheetMetal → SheetMetal AddBase.svg Make Base Wall menu option.
    • The keyboard shortcut: C then B.
  3. Adjust the profile's parameters by editing the corresponding values in the Property editor:
    • The property Datalength for the profile length,
    • The property Datathickness for the profile thickness,
    • The property Dataradius for the inner radius of the bends.

Plate

  1. Select a closed outline Workbench Sketcher.svg sketch.
  2. Activate the SheetMetal AddBase.svg SheetMetal AddBase command (see above).
  3. Adjust the plate's parameter by editing the corresponding value in the Property editor:
    • The property Datathickness for the thickness of the plate.
(The properties Datalength and Dataradius are not used for plates.)

A SheetMetal BaseBend object is derived from a Part Feature object and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:

Data

Base

  • DataLabel (String): Default value: BaseBend (+ a sequential number for second and following items).
    The user editable name of this object, it may be any arbitrary UTF8 string.
  • Data (hidden)Base Feature (Link): Base Feature. Link to the parent feature.
  • Data (hidden)_Body (LinkHidden): Hidden link to the parent body.

Parameters

  • DataBend Side (Enumeration): "Relief Type". Outside (default), Inside, Middle.
  • DataBend Sketch (Link): "Wall Sketch object". Link to the profile/outline sketch.
  • DataMid Plane (Bool): "Extrude Symmetric to Plane".
    false (default), the profile extends to one side of the sketch plane,
    true, the profile extends symmetrically to both sides of the sketch plane.
  • DataReverse (Bool): "Reverse Extrusion Direction". Default: false.
  • Datalength (Length): "Length of wall". Default: 100,00 mm.
  • Dataradius (Length): "Bend Radius". Default: 1,00 mm.
  • Datathickness (Length): "Thickness of sheetmetal". Default: 1,00 mm.
