Physically, the neutral fiber represents the limit between the material compressed area inside the bend and the extended area outside the bend. Ideally, it is represented by an arc located inside the thickness and centered on the bend axis. This formula can be deactivated or modified by right-clicking in the K factor field and choosing an option from the contextual menu. It can be reactivated by clicking the Apply DIN button.

Some people may argue that the additional expense of having the Aerospace Sheet Metal Design tools is not worth it. However let me show you why I beg to differ! These validations check are primarily for manufacturability such as ensuring all bends have the same radius, there are no overlaps when the component is unfolded, etc.
Although the Generative Sheet Metal Design workbench gives us, the user, an extensive list of tools to choose from, it can have some limiting factors. For example it would generally struggle with most curvatures let alone double curvatures.
Both workbenches can be used in conjunction with one another sharing common features between them. We will look at what the WEB tool can do here. From the above image, it is clear that the Web tool can perform the same operation as the Wall tool in Generative Sheet Metal Design. Consider the following:. In the above, the Magenta curve is three dimensional and does not lie on the spherical surface nor any plane.
There are also three surfaces that create a three sided boundary. Selecting the spherical surface as the Support and the other four geometries as Boundaries:.
The resulting sheet metal part is as follows:. For more information or to learn more about the Aerospace Sheet Metal Design workbench, please contact us.
