|SheetMetal → Add Corner Relief|
|Introduced in version|
The command can only create one relief at a time.
Default corner of two bends → Corner with added corner relief
Default open corner → Open corner with added corner relief
- Select two edges of a corner.
- Activate the SheetMetal AddCornerRelief command using one of the following:
The shape of a corner relief can be altered by changing its property values:
The value of the property DataReliefSketch can be chosen from a list:
Squareuse the value of the property DataSize to scale the relief.
Square-Scaleduse the value of the property DataSize Ratio to scale the relief.
Sketchactivates the use of the sketch listed in the property DataSketch to define the relief shape.
Circular relief (default settings) → Square relief (default settings) → Sketch based relief
A closer look at relief sizes
To get an idea how and where the relief is placed we unfold a default corner without a relief.
Default corner of two bends → Corner with unfold solid → Corner in top view
The next step is to open the unfold sketch, create a circle through 3 points and add a radius dimension.
Now we add a corner relief, create the corresponding unfold solid and open the first unfold sketch again.
Adding a concentric circle of 3 mm radius reveals that we have found out how the internal circle is positioned as the new circle fits perfectly into the cut-out of the relief's unfold solid.
Default corner with unfold sketch → Corner with default relief and the same unfold sketch
Trying to set the property DataSize to a value below the determined 1,67 mm will result in an error; any value above should work fine.
Switching to Circle-Scaled and creating another unfold solid shows that 1,67 mm is the base for the property DataSize Ratio, too.
- The k factor defines where within the thickness of a sheet the neutral axis is located.
- (It would be nice to know if this factor is according to ISO or ANSI standard...)

A SheetMetal CornerRelief object is derived from a Part Feature object and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:
- Data (hidden)Base Feature (
Link): Base Feature. Link to the parent feature.
- Data (hidden)_Body (
LinkHidden): Hidden link to the parent body.
- DataReliefSketch (
Enumeration): "Corner Relief Type".
- DataSize (
Length): "Size of Shape". Default:
- DataSize Ratio (
Float): "Size Ratio of Shape". Default:
- Database Object (
LinkSub): "Base Object". Links to the pair of edges defining the Corner Relief position.
- Datakfactor (
FloatConstraint): "Neutral Axis Position". Default:
- DataSketch (
Link): "Corner Relief Sketch".
- DataXOffset (
Distance): "Gap from side one". Default:
- DataYOffset (
Distance): "Gap from side two". Default:
