|Welcome to the Aerospace SheetMetal
Design User's Guide. This guide is intended for users who need to
become quickly familiar with the Aerospace SheetMetal Design Version 5
This overview provides the following information:
The Aerospace Sheetmetal Design workbench provides an associative feature-based modeling, making it possible to design sheetmetal parts in concurrent engineering between an unfolded or folded part representation.
Aerospace Sheetmetal allows you to define a part using predefined features. Both folded geometry and flattened geometry can be computed from the feature specifications.
The Aerospace SheetMetal Design User's Guide has been designed to show you how to design aerospace sheet metal parts of varying levels of complexity.
|Before reading this guide, you should be familiar with basic Version 5
concepts such as document windows, standard and view toolbars. Therefore,
we recommend that you read the Infrastructure User's Guide
that describes generic capabilities common to all Version 5 products. It
also describes the general layout of V5 and the interoperability between
You may also like to read the following complementary product guides, for which the appropriate license is required:

and performing the step-by-step Getting Started
Once you have finished, you should move on to the next sections, which explain how to handle more detailed capabilities of the product.
The Workbench Description section, which describes the Aerospace SheetMetal Design workbench will also certainly prove useful.
