Creating a Flanged Cutout

This task shows you how to create a flanged cutout by specifying the punch geometrical parameters.

Open the NEWStamping8.CATPart document.
If you use the Aerospace SheetMetal Design workbench, open the Aero_Stamping8.CATPart document.

  1. Click Flanged Cutout .

  2. Select a profile.

    The Flanged Cutout Definition dialog box is displayed, providing default values.
  3. Change the value in the different fields, if needed:

    • Height H

    • Angle A

    • Radius R

  4. Click Preview to visualize the flanged cutout.

  5. Click OK to validate.

    The flanged cutout (identified as Flanged is created and the specification tree is updated accordingly.
    You can use 0 as the Radius value to deactivate the Radius R value, and to create the flanged cutout without a fillet.
      Note that if you create a flanged cutout from a sketch that is not tangent continuous, you cannot design any other feature on it (such as bend, cutout, hole).
