Creating a Curve Stamp

This task shows you how to create a curve stamp by specifying the punch geometrical parameters.

Open the NEWStamping3.CATPart document.
If you use the Aerospace SheetMetal Design workbench, open the Aero_Stamping3.CATPart document.

  1. Click Curve Stamp .

  2. Select Sketch-for-Curve-Stamp, the curve previously defined. 

    The Curve Stamp Definition dialog box opens, providing default values.
  3. Change the value in the different fields, if needed:

    • Height H: the total height

    • Radius R1: the outer bend radius

    • Radius R2: the inner bend radius

    • Length L: the stamps' maximum width

    • Angle A: the stamping draft angle 

  4. Click Preview to visualize the curve stamp.

  5. Click OK to validate.

    The curve stamp (identified as Curve is created and the specification tree is updated accordingly.
    • You can use 0 as the Radius value to deactivate the Radius R and Radius R2 values, and to create the curve stamp without a fillet.
    • Check the Obround option to round off the edges of the curve stamp.
